Plymouth Whitemarsh High School’s Jason Stumpf has signed to compete in track and field at Goldey-Beacom College in Delaware. Off the track, he intends to study business.
The senior, who participates in the 400-meter, 800-meter, hurdles, and jump events, has been a varsity member of the high school track and field team all four years of high school. He holds the fifth-best time in the school for 300-meter hurdles with a 44.76-second time. His best times in the 400-meter and 800-meter relays are 50.86 seconds and 2:07 minutes.
“My favorite thing about track is that it’s an individual sport so I get what I put in. But there are also opportunities to work as a team on relays and outside of races, “shared Stumpf. “I also like how there is no guarantee in winning. You go into a race thinking you can beat certain people but those same people can be the ones who beat you.”
Stumpf started running in seventh grade and has also played football all four years of high school. He is an Honor Roll Student Ambassador at Central Montco Technical High School, where he is also a Program Vice President and has been named Student of the Quarter.
