The Class AAAAA High Jump competition was for the top eight athletes from across the state. Caldwell's 6'6" jump was 2" higher than the runner-up and a full 4" higher than the third place finisher.

The GHSA Class AAAAA Boys State Preview report listed Caldwell in the "Top Athletes to Watch" section (read the May 6, 2017 article)

Earlier this season, Caldwell won both the Region 6-AAAAA and the County High Jump Championships. His 6'6" jump at the "Battle of the Branch" in March shattered the Flowery Branch High School course record by 4".

Congratulations to Pache Caldwell for a great season!
