A Skyline senior track and field athlete reached the top of the podium in two events on Monday.

Montevallo University commit Jamison Rowell won the 300-meter hurdles (44.26 seconds) and the long jump (20 feet, 6.5 inches) during the Highway 31 Invitational at Athens High School.

Rowell had never ran a hurdles race in a meet until Monday. 

“(Rowell) wanted to try out hurdles in an outdoor meet to see how he would do,” said Skyline head coach Rhonda Saint. “Rowell is a solid all-around athlete. He enjoys trying out different events and doesn't give anything less than his best.” 

Skyline also got Top-10 finishes from Aaron Peacock in the shot put and discus throw.

“Aaron Peacock had a strong showing at the meet,” Saint said. “This is his first year of track at Skyline. “He is going to be a strong thrower for our team the remainder of this season and next season as well. I look forward to seeing what he can do.”
