The Lee County Track & Field Team would like to thank Mr. & Mrs. Congleton, Samuel Thompson, Jr., Jamie Shuler and all our friends at Congleton Brothers for their wonderful and generous donation of sand for our newly-renovated Long Jump Pit up at the High School. We would also like to give a big shout out to Ron Bryant, David Lyons, and the Lee County Schools Maintenance Team for all they did to prepare our pit for the donation of sand. We thank you all so much for supporting and encouraging our team!
While we have sprinters, throwers, and runners as well, I included a photo of our jumping team by the new pit. From left to right we have--Coach Jeremy Holt, Jeff Hobbs, Jr. (11th Grade), Landyn Shelton (6th), Austin Hogan (6th), X'Avion Thompson (10th), Kaleb Evans (8th), Michael Pendleton (8th), Destiny Thompson (7th), & Justin Smith (10th).
