Black and Gold Gets a Little Extra Gold

Tuesday, May 19, 2015


Houston, Texas: Fletcher Sherrard, Galena Park High School Yellow Jacket and outstanding athlete, brought gold home from the state track meet held at the University of Texas in Austin May 14-16. Sherrard competed in the triple jump in the state meet Thursday night, and with a jump of 49í .25” Sherrard won first place. This is the second time in two years GPHS has brought home a gold medal - the only two in the school's long history. Last year Anthoula Kelly brought a gold medal home to Galena Park in the long jump. Sherrard is undecided on which university to attend; however, his athletic abilities in basketball and track have several programs courting him.
