Mother and daughter bond over the high-jump bar

Cherie Potsklan began competing in the high-jump to spend time with her daughter, Alison Wood. Despite suffering from a hernia for almost a year, former Newberg High School state champion high jumper Alison Wood (formerly Hunkins) cleared 5 feet, 5 inches on July 24 to win at the U.S. Masters Outdoor Track and Field National Championship at Sacramento State University.
