High School Track and Field: State-bound Ben Hunt excells
By TYLER MAYFORTH
San Marcos High School might be a high-jumping factory.
Two years after former Rattler leaper Allex Austin won the Class 5A state title, Ben Hunt will take a crack at the University Interscholastic League Class 5A State Track and Field Meet this weekend. Hunt earned the right to compete in Austin by placing second at the Region IV-5A meet, which was held two weeks ago at Heroes Stadium in San Antonio.
“I’m really excited to see how well Ben will do,” San Marcos assistant track and field coach Christina Jamerson. “He’s just improving every day. Every practice he’s getting better. He keeps a positive attitue and doesn’t let anything get to him."
Hunt will compete 1 p.m. Saturday inside the Mike A. Myers Track and Soccer Stadium.
