The state title hunt did not stop for freshman Stowe. After competing in the sprint medley race, she moved on to the 800 meter. She crossed the finish line with a time of 2:14:64, four seconds faster than second place.
The third title came from Traxton Jewkes. After being named a state champion in high jump the year prior as a freshman, Jewkes arrived at the track ready to defend his state title. He earned the title by clearing 6’2” in the high jump.
“These guys and ladies have done a really great job,” expressed coach Jewkes. “They are just an amazing group of athletes to coach.”
