Olympia High girls track-and-field star Omaria Gordon was honored at the OCPS board meeting on May 28, 2024, following her individual state championship win in the long jump at the FHSAA Class 4A meet. 

Her jump of 20-feet, 9-inches not only was enough to earn her gold, but it also set a Central Florida record — a length only bested by three other girls high school track athletes in the United States this season. 

Gordon also finished fourth in both the triple jump and 400-meter hurdles.

The recent graduate of Olympia High received a certificate of excellence from the OCPS board members and was highlighted for her accomplishments on the track for the Titans.
