Track & Field

Jackson Romero decided to try out for the North Vermilion Middle School Track and Field Team after coaches and friends advised him to play.  Jackson was concerned that Track & Field would interfere with Baseball, but his competitive nature got the best of him, and he joined the Track Team.

As a 6th Grader in a Covid Shortened Season, Jackson was training to run in two relay races as well as long jump.  As a 7th Grader, Jackson ran the second leg of the 4×400, 4×800 relays and competed in the long jump.

Once the season started, Jackson’s coach asked him to work with the High Jump.  Jackson went on to participate in a few meets as a High Jumper along with his other events.  Jackson Romero took home the Bronze (3rd Place) in the Parish Meet as he competed with other participants a year older than he.
