Elijah Rowe and Jade Brown represented J.P Taravella High School’s track and field team in the Adidas Outdoor Nationals in North Carolina on June 18-19. 

Rowe ran in the 100-meter final with a time of 11.05 on Saturday, Then competed in the 200-meter final before winning the gold in the National Elite Long Jump.

Brown not only set a personal recording in the 200 but set a school record with a time of 24:34 in the preliminaries. She then finished with a time of 24.51 in the finals to come in fourth place. 

“Getting to go to nationals was such a good experience,” Brown said. “It was nerve-racking but also exciting. I was going to run my hardest and not let any of the work I put in at practice go to waste, and I ended up running not one but two 24s that day.”
