Boys, girls both take first in Pueblo

GHS Track and Field — Three meets into the season and the Gunnison High School (GHS) track and field team has already hit their stride — posting multiple top-three finishes at the John Tate Challenge Cup in Pueblo on Friday, while also winning it all for the boys and girls teams.

Kelita Baroumbaye was a force to be reckoned with once again, winning both the long jump and triple jumps with personal best marks. Baroumbaye won the long jump with a personal best of 21-feet, nine-andthree-fourths-inches. However, his best performance came in the triple jump where he posted a personal best mark of 46-feet, twoinches — breaking the school record, which was previously set by Steve Blair in 1989.

“When I first started track my sophomore year in high school I told myself that I would break a record before graduating,” said Baroumbaye. “So achieving that goal is my proudest moment.”
