FLYING HIGH: Bruce McBarnette ’80 joined the Princeton track team in 1977, and because of his height, he was asked to try the high jump. Without any prior training, he quickly became one of the best high jumpers on the team. He has kept with the sport, and in March he set a new world record in the high jump — 5 feet 9 inches — for men over 60 at the USA Track and Field Masters Championships. McBarnette, who owns a real-estate investment firm in Sterling, Va., has won 39 national titles over the years.
