Jump Ropers Try to Leap Ahead

Posted: Updated:

MOXEE--Jumpers hopped to it Saturday in a Jump Rope workshop.

The Bainbridge Island Ropers ran the event.

Their team competes in national contests.  They're trying to get more people interested in skipping rope as a sport here in Central Washington.

Organizers said not as many kids as they'd hoped for showed up at East Valley High School, but they still plan to have another event in October.
