Congratulations to track and field athlete Alex C. '23 on being selected as our Athlete of the Week for the week of April 25- May 1, 2022.
The junior javelin thrower had a peek performance at the 1A District 12 Track and Field meet a week ago. Alex threw the javelin 45.19 meters to win the district championship, smashing is prior personal record by nearly five meters and set a Canterbury record in the process.
"I am so proud of Alex and all the hard work he has put in this season to get to this point," said track and field coach Charlotte Edwards. "He peaked at just the right time, and look forward to what he can accomplish at regionals."
With the throw, Alex ranks among the top 15 for all 1A schools in the state of Florida and has advanced to the 1A Region 3 on Wednesday (May 4) at Community School of Naples.
UPDATE: Alex shattered his own school record at the 1A Region 3 meet with a throw of 46.03m, finishing third in the region! Alex will represent Canterbury at the 1A State Championship meet on Wednesday, May 11 at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
