The following information is from Brian Green, Forest Moses' grandfather:

Highland Park's Forest Moses, has qualified for the 2014 U.S. Track and Field National finals.  

His jump of 1.95 meters at the Junior Olympic Region 7 finals, July 10-13 in Huntington, IN placed him in the top five, which qualifies him for the national finals in Humble, TX July 21-28. 

This is a repeat performance for the 17 year old who placed 20th at the 2013 USTAF National Championship. 

Earlier this summer, Forest was named the ISL Conference athlete of the year after qualifying for IHSA state finals in both high jump and 110-high hurdles.

Forest competes in the 17- to 18-year-old division and will be a senior at Northridge Prep in Niles.
