Roach Strikes Gold - Again

Tuesday, May 19, 2015


Houston, Texas: Kerwin Roach has seen his share of success the past two years. Last year he was part of the state championship basketball team as well as the triple jump state champion. At the state track meet held at the University of Texas in Austin May 14-16, Roach took another gold medal home. His jump of 50í 6.25” launched him to victory and secured his place as the reigning state 6A triple jump champion. Roach, in a way, jumped in front of his “home crowd” since he is slated to attend UT and play basketball for the Longhorns. Roach indicates he will also walk on the UT track team.
