Swamp Fox News · Senior Jessica Johnson signs with Clemson for Track & Field


 

Congratulations to Senior Jessica Johnson who has signed to compete for the Clemson Tigers in the high jump.  Coach Plane states, “We are so proud of Jessica.  She came to us just a couple of years ago and immediately displayed talent in the high jump.  She worked hard with Coach Hauff and got better every single day.  Her focus and determination to succeed helped her earn a region championship in her first full year of competition.  She then proceeded to finish fourth at the state meet.  I can’t wait to see her progression at the next level.”  Coach Hauff comments, “Having Jessica in weightlifting class I had the opportunity to develop a rapport with her and see how much talent she has. After continuous prodding I was able to convince her to give track an opportunity and her skill propelled her to one of the top high jumpers in the state in just one season.  The hard work she put in brought her to the state finals.  I know she was looking forward to compete for a state championship this season also.  As a coach I have been blessed with the opportunity to coach a wonderful student athlete.  Even with the shortened season this year she stilled earned the opportunity to sign with the Clemson University Track team.  We are very proud of her and the way she represents herself, ARHS and our community.”

Congratulations Swamp Fox!  Remember your Swamp Fox roots and strive to be the best Tiger you can be!
