(CARVER, MASSACHUSETTS) Camren Allain, a junior at Carver High School, has made his school and district proud by winning first place in the high jump category at this year's Adidas National Competition.
The Adidas National Competition was held from March 17, 2023, to March 19, 2023, in Virginia Beach, Virginia. It featured students from all over the country competing in various categories, including track, shot put, pole vault, high jump, and more.
Allain, who was among the ten students competing in the high jump category at the national competition, made an impressive 6-foot-8-inch jump, taking home the first-place trophy. This was Allain’s first full season of competing in the high jump category, and his hard work and dedication to improving his skills paid off.
"We are very proud of Camren for this accomplishment as we have seen him work diligently this season to grow his high jump skills," said Superintendent Scott Knief. "On behalf of the entire school district, I would like to congratulate Camren for placing first in the competition. We greatly look forward to seeing what he does next."
Allain was the only student-athlete from Carver to qualify for the Adidas National Competition this year. He had previously placed third in the high jump at the New Balance Nationals in early March.
"I'm really proud of qualifying for Nationals," Allain said. "Placing first in the high jump was something I've been working toward all year, and I'm thankful to my coach and family for supporting me throughout this event."
Allain, who hopes to keep competing over the next year, has set his sights on breaking his own record with a new high jump goal. With his commitment, talent, and drive, there is no doubt that he will achieve his goals and continue to make his school and district proud.
