Allen , Hubert
Hubert Allen was the first state of Oregon high school champion in the high jump. In 1927, he won the state high school high jump championship while representing Pendlenton High School with a jump of 5 ft. 9 3/4". After high school he continued his track career at the University of Oregon where along with Robert Robinson and Charles Williams he played a role in integrating the school's athletic teams and dorms for African Americans. Allen was multi-talented in track competing in the high jump, long jump and high hurdles. In the 1931 Northern Division championships he placed second for the University of Oregon with a long jump of 23ft. 5 7/8 in. The 1932 season started with a dual meet against Washington in which Allen broke the northwest broad jump record when he soared 23 feet 11 inches while placing second in both the high jump and high hurdles. Allen continued to improve during the 1932 season and placed second in the first ever Pacific Northwest section of the U.S. Olympic Trials when he jumped 23 ft. 5 7/8 inches which was just short of the U.S. Olympic Trials semi-finals qualifying distance of 24 feet.
