 Wanting to get in better shape and have some fun off season from soccer, Jamison Davis, a junior at Gulf Breeze High School, joined the Dolphin's track team last spring, and being the athlete that she is, she was met with great success. Running the 200 and 400 meter races, Davis instantly rose to the spot of varsity sprinter competing in invitational meets and all the way up to regionals. This year, Davis intends to perform in the same events, with the possibility of branching out. "I run the 200 and 400's now, but I might try out jump, I don't know yet." Says Davis, and with her record, she would be successful in all fields. 

    Running a 10.24 for the 100 meter, Davis qualified for the Escambia Invitational and has only moved up. Earning a varsity letter her first year running, Davis moved into a starting position on the 200 and 400 regional teams. When asked about her goals for this year, Davis said that she wants to reach state and do better in her 400. "Last year at regionals we were really unorganized. I had two 200's and two 400's back to back and didn't realize that I had the last race to do. They were all yelling my name and the judges had to stop the race so that I could get on the track. This year I hope to make it past regionals and be prepared for what I have to compete in". To the athlete of the issue, good luck in this year's season, make the Dolphins proud.
