At the FHSAA state championship track and field meets, Foundation Academy sophomore CJ Bronaugh stood out above the pack from the West Orange and Southwest Orange County area. 

Bronaugh won two Class 1A state titles in the 100- and 200-meter dashes and led the Lions’ 4x100-meter relay team — along with JT Bronaugh, Daniel Jean and Zephy Rogers — to a second-place finish. 

Ocoee High’s Diego De Pina was the only other boys athlete from the area who finished on the podium places throughout the four classifications, earning a silver medal in the Class 4A shot put competition. 

On the girls side, Olympia High’s Omaria Gordon was another shining star representing the area in the Class 4A meet. She won the state championship in the long jump and finished fourth in both the triple jump and 400-meter hurdles.
