Track · Keila Perez finishes 2nd in Discus, 3rd in Shot Put at State Meet

A Silver Medal for the Discus and a Bronze Medal for the Shot put!

It is truly an honor just to make it to the state level to compete against the very best in Florida,

but to excel and earn two of the highest medals is remarkable and seldom duplicated for two different events.

She alone earned 14 points for Colonial High School placing our school in the top 20 (17th place, which was ahead of Winter Park, Boone, Dr. Phillips, Apopka just to name a few). To add icing to the cake,

Keila is just a junior, she will be back next year to try and earn Gold medals!

It should also be noted the throwing Coach Buck Gurley is earning the reputation of one of the best Track and field Coaches in the state by once again producing such incredible results.  Please remember, he helped us bring home a Gold Medal last year in the shot put.


I wish to add that Keila is not only a very skilled athlete, she is a wonderful young lady that represents our

School in such a high class manner.  We should all be super proud of her.
