Here’s how close that Dunbar came to winning the boys Division II state track and field team title last weekend: one move-out.
Long jumper Jaecob Snow was fourth in the event at state for the Wolverines last year and was capable of winning as a senior. However, he moved to California last summer.
Snow got that individual state title for El Camino High School in San Diego. His jump of 23-4.25 was good enough to win the California Interscholastic Federation state track and field championships at the University of California, Berkeley, also this past weekend.
That jump would easily also have won him the D-II title in Ohio; instead, Andre Elkins of Leavittsburg won in 22-5.75.
Had Snow remained at Dunbar and won the long jump, that would have given the Wolverines 10 additional team points. Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary defeated runner-up Dunbar for the D-II boys team title, 51-44.Tweet
