Freshman Jazmine Scott represented Gompers Preparatory Academy in the Track & Field CIF Finals yesterday at Mount Carmel High School as the only freshman countywide competing in the long jump and triple jump. With a jump of 17’8.5 she took 4th place in Division 2 in the long jump and 5th place in the triple jump with a mark of 36’2. Competing in front of a crowd numbering in the thousands Jazmine represented GPA with pride and gave it her all as she medaled in both of her jumping events.
