Catching Up

Way to go Trojans! I’d like to congratulate some of our fellow freshman classmates on their last track meet in the Smith and Benson Relays. This meet was held in Albany last Saturday, March 19th.

Congrats to Javen Wimberly, who came in 3rd place in the Triple Jump, 5th place in Long Jump, and 9th place in the 100 Meter Dash. Also, congrats to Rachel Kiesau on placing in 5th in the 1600 Meter Run and 8th in the 300 Meter Hurdles.

Congrats to Ar’Tavius Warren as well on placing in 8th during the Long Jump event. I asked Ar’Tavius a few questions about track. This is his second year jumping, but his first time ever jumping for the high-school.
Warren also says that his farthest he’d ever jumped was a 20.03.25, but claims it will higher. I also asked Warren if he plans on continuing track during his highschool years, and he says, “Yes, and I hope to improve on my jumps and sprints. I’m not finished yet, I’m going after Trey Eaford’s records, and he is also my role model, so I’m trying to keep up with him.” Keep up the good-work Warren!
