Jack Retains Conference USA Decathlon Title In The Searing Texas Heat

Despite almost no training post an emergency appendix operation Jack successfully depended his title. Conditions were brutal with temperatures in the high 30’s from dawn to dusk and precious little shade anywhere and a stinging wind. The wind & the heat hit everyone’s 400m & 1500m times so he wasn’t at all happy with his score and just missed out on NCAA qualification this year  but went to regionals for long jump in Arkansas
