Congratulations to track and field student-athlete Lara K. '23 on being selected as our Athlete of the Week for the week of March 7-13, 2022.
The junior high jumper made her way into the Canterbury record books after jumping 5'2" at the North Port Invite last Thursday at North Port High school. The 17-year-old high jump record was originally set by Kendahl Voelker back in 2005. The jump solidified a second place finish at the event and earned the girls' team eight points.
"I am so proud of all the hard work Lara has put in to get to this point," said high jump coach Matt Booth. "She has been eyeing this record since the eighth grade."
Lara currently ranks second in the state at the FHSAA 1A classification with this new personal-best jump.
