8/12/2019

Hebron Academy is pleased to share that Jenni Flynn, Middle School student and athlete, had a stellar performance at the USATF-Maine Youth Track & Field Championships on August 10, 2019 by winning two individual state championships.

Jenni placed first in the 100-meter dash (time of 13.3), first in the 200-meter dash (time of 27.7). Jenni also placed third in the girls shot put (with a mark of 22-10).
 
Jenni competed as a member of the Panther Track Club, a summer track club for kids ages 5-14, located in Poland, ME. During the academic year, Jenni is a member of the Hebron Academy Middle School Track team. Jenni also competed in July at the USATF Junior Olympics Regional Qualifiers in Long Island. Jenni placed 5th in the long jump, 5th in the 100 meter, and 3rd in the 200 meter events. She qualified for the national meet in Sacramento California in all three events. 

HAMS Track Coach Steve Pelletier says, “the Hebron Academy Community should be extremely proud of Jenni and her accomplishments this summer! Jenni recorded some of the fastest times in the state this past spring running for the HAMS Track & Field Team in the 100m and 200m sprints. She ran virtually unchallenged during the season and I was not all surprised how well she did in the USTAF Region 1 Junior Olympic Championships in July”.

We are proud of Jenni’s athletic accomplishments and look to seeing more from her in the future!
