Coach Oliver’s Comments
Coach Mark Oliver said, “The Auburn boys had a strong showing at the JCC invite. Leading the way was Baily Darnell with a four medal performance. He ran and jumped well in a very tough meet. “T.J. Roybal brought home the lone gold medal for the meet with a personal best toss in the shot put. “Daniel Frary grabbed the silver in the high jump and set a personal best in the process. Connor Clark was a double medal winner in both hurdle events and is vastly improved from last year. “Grant Heywood and Trace Moody brought home medals in their specialties and are reliable scorers for us. “Seth Zimmerman was a workhorse in the distance events, placing in two of the three events he entered,” Oliver concluded.
