Weeks after scoring his 1,000th career point on the basketball court, Byron-Bergen’s Brandon Burke took to the track this past weekend and jumped his way to a tie for seventh place finish in the High Jump at the New Balance Nationals @ The Armory in NYC.
Burke, who leapt 6’10” during last year’s outdoor track season in order to qualify for this past weekend’s event, finished the HJ Championship on Saturday with a jump of 6’7″ – which is astounding considering he has been participating throughout the winter season as a basketball player. The top-finisher at this past weekend’s National meet leaped 7’00.25″ – just ahead of Burke’s pace which he set a season ago.
I’m looking forward to great things from Brandon coming up this spring.
