Hairston Finishes Fourth at Nationals!!


Congratulations to Junior Del’Mario Hairston who took fourth in the Championship Division long jump March 10 during New Balance Indoor Nationals in New York.

Hairston went 23 feet, 4 inches, with the top three all over 24 — Dyshon Vaughn (24-5 1/2), Jeremiah Willis (24-5 1/2) and Kevin Snyder (24-1). He was consistent, never jumping under 22' nor did he fault. For full results, click here.  

Hairston was the Emerging Elite Division long jump indoor national champion last year with a best effort of 23-8. Just last weekend he earned the Ohio Indoor Division 1 Championship, this coming off a sophomore outdoor campaign when he finished third in Division I long jump at state, earning first-team News-Herald honors.

Del'Mario gets a brief reprieve to enjoy his accomplishment before getting back to competition later this month.
