CANYON, Texas - The Region 1-2A two-day meet kicked off on Friday at West Texas A&M.

One of the boys field events to watch was the long jump, and Hesston Marshall made his name known in the sand.

The senior, West Texas A&m football commit, qualified in four events, including long jump.

Marshall beat his personal best with a jump of 22 feet, 6 1/2 inches, taking home the silver medal. He takes the second place spot right behind Farwell’s Jonathon Mora.

Marshall has remained humble despite all of his success.

“Pretty much worked my whole life to do the best I can and try to beat the school record. Just trying to break records.”

The regional 1-2A track meet continues on Saturday at West Texas A&M.
