Gibbons’ Duvier seeks retribution in track

 

flyon@Miamiherald.com

Cardinal Gibbons’ high-flier Stefan Duvier is jumping straight from the kettle boiler atmosphere of the boys’ basketball playoffs into a heated race for state high jump gold.

After his dream for a basketball state championship ended with Gibbons losing in the 5A regional semifinals Tuesday, Duvier hopes a victory at the Louie Bing Classic at Traz Powell Stadium in Miami on Saturday will launch his bid for a state high jump title.

Best known for his pogo stick-like jumping ability and highlight-reel dunks on the basketball court, Duvier said the extra offseason work on his technique and mental focus has put his confidence at an all-time high.

“I feel I’m as good as anybody jumping,’’ Duvier said. “I don’t label myself as a basketball player jumping. When track season starts, I’m a high jumper. I’m looking to dominate the entire year and finish first at states.”

Duvier said he has moved on from the disappointment of the Class 3A state final last season, when he came in as a co-favorite with a personal-best 6-4, only to no-height. That the winning height was 6-2 made the setback sting that much more.

“It was real disappointing, but you have to come back stronger,’’ Duvier said. “No-heighting just motivated me this year to work harder and get back at it. To not only place, but get first.”

Duvier came to Gibbons as a basketball prospect but said he now shares the same affinity for the high jump since taking it up for the first time two seasons ago.
