ATLANTIC DUAL SPORT ATHLETE HAS TO MAKE A TOUGH DECISION


 (Atlantic) The number one Long Jumper in Class 3A will be competing in only his fifth competition Friday at the State Track meet in Des Moines. In fact it is too bad Trojan Junior Sam Markham doesn't have a twin, because the dual sport athlete had to make a tough decision after qualifying for the state track meet with 21-10.50 effort in the long jump last week, and shooting a 75-for the district qualifying Atlantic Trojan Golf Team.

 

Both events will be going on at the sametime Friday morning. After discussing his options with his family, friends, teamates and coaches Markham decided he would compete in the state track meet.
