Sipes headed to States

Oak Ridge High School’s Jacob Sipes will represent his school at the state track and field meet.

The junior qualified to compete in the 300-meter hurdles with his third place finish at the Masters last week.

“It has been quite a season for Jacob in the 300-meter hurdles,” according to coach Rob Fairley. “His first race … was on March 24 and he has shown significant improvement with his performances over the last two months. Jacob has the fifth fastest time (37.77) in the state.”

Jacob will travel to Clovis on May 31 to compete at Buchanan High School. He’s striving to qualify for the finals on June 1, when the top nine athletes in the state will compete against each other.

Also at the Masters on May 23 & 24, the boys 4 x 100-meter relay team (Dominick Worsham, Zach Youngberg, Bryce Williams, Jacob Sipes) places 6th with a time of 42.65.
