Track Birds take on Nationals and Jr Olympics

Date Posted: Jun 20, 2012

Travis Jenkins and Shannon Foster might be out of school for the summer, but they are still competing in track and field events.  Travis competed in long jump at the New Balance National event and placed with an 8th place finish of 21 feet 20.75 inches. 

Shannon Foster competed in three different events those being Pole Vault, Long Jump, and Triple Jump in the Regional Jr Olympics.  In those she jumped 15-09 inches in long jump and 31 feet in triple jump.  However, she tied her height with a former state champion in Pole Vault and qualified for the Junior Olympic Championships in Baltimore in July.  Her height was her personal best of 7 feet 10 inches.  She tied for second in the competition.

We will be rooting Shannon on in July.
