Over the past few weeks, we've been taking a look at some of the top track and field athletes in Georgia.

We started with the top sprinters in the boys division, then focused on girls sprinters, followed by the best distance runners in the boys division and girls division.

Next up were the best boys throwers, followed by the best girls throwers. Last week we featured the top jumpers in the boys division, and now it's the girls' turn..

There are hundreds of standout jumpers in Georgia, and these lists are not intended to be comprehensive! Tag us on Twitter or Instagram at @SBLiveGA and let us know about other athletes worthy of fans’ attention.
