Student Recognition Recipients from 2019-20
Alex Jacobs, Lakewood Elementary School
Both on and off the track, Alex has been racing towards his goals, and has numerous achievements to show for it. This past year, he finished in first place at the local, regional, and provincial levels of his track and field competitions. In July, at the Ontario Outdoor Championship held at the Toronto Track and Field Center, Alex broke the previous record in the Combined Events, Boys Tetrathlon Under-14 category, earning his first provincial championship, and a spot to compete in the Ontario Minor Track Association Championship the following month.
Tetrathlon includes four events: 80 metre hurdles, 200 metres, high jump and shot put. Alex turned down participating in the Ontario Minor Track Association Championship in August in order to spend the week in Algonquin Park as a proud member of the First Port Dover Sea Scout Troop. Alex is also a member of the Brantford Track and Field Club, and trains five days a week. At Grand Erie’s Track and Field CAGE event last spring, Alex won every event he entered.
