High Jump Record at the Winter Meetings.
W. F. Sweeney of the Xavier Athletic Club has been invited to compete in the second winter meeting for the running high jump record. Sweeney broke Fearing's record at the B. A. A. games on Saturday, and now holds, besides the outdoor record, the indoor world's record at 6 feet 2 1-2 inches. It is very probable that Mr. Sweeney will accept the invitation, and in that case he will attempt to break his own record. Considering the fact that Sweeney cleared the bar on Saturday with a good margin to spare, he is likely to show some remarkable jumping.
Tickets for the winter meetings will be put on sale at Leavitt and Peirce's on Monday, February 27th.
