Novans' Pitts has come a long way

January 3, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Back in the spring of 2010 at the outdoor state meet, Kaylnn “K.K.” Pitts shocked the competition (and herself) when the then-freshman from Woonsocket High cleared 5 feet, 3 inches to earn the individual title in the high jump.
“I didn’t think I would win, really,” Pitts recalled. “I wasn’t really counting my steps. I was just jumping.”
Since that breakthrough performance only one person has stood in the way of the Villa Novan standout repeating the feat. It was an athlete that actually finished third that day, La Salle Academy’s Dakota Dailey-Harris.
