Sawyer breaks own record; finishes fourth at state meet
That's when he and his coach, Steve Reaves, plan to work on improving his fourth place finish at the state track and field meet.
Sawyer competed at the meet Friday, May 11, and "had an awesome day," Reaves said.
He jumped 14 feet, which is a personal record by one foot, and finished fourth place overall.
"Drake had been working hard in the weeks leading up to the state meet, and it paid off for him. To improve that much this late in the year is quite an accomplishment," Reaves said.
"I am real proud of the way that Drake competed at regional and state. As a coach, it is very rewarding to see an athlete step up and compete when it's time, and Drake did just that."
Earlier this year, Sawyer was named to the Academic All-District basketball team.
Reaves said he and Sawyer have big plans for next season.
