Athletics Update: Buckley-Jones Dominates First Round of Testing
Middle school athletes completed their first round of winter offerings this week. Included in those offerings are two measuring sticks: the mile run and the beep test. After nearly 120 athletes cycled through the activities, eighth grader Henry Buckley-Jones found himself at the top of both leaderboards. Every athlete will get three cracks at each test before February Break, and competitive chatter among the athletes has already begun, so Buckley’s place at the top may not be safe for long. In a year void of interscholastic competition, the healthy competitive spirit displayed during the first round was a breath of fresh (masked) air for the program.
