Orange’s Jamar Davis Wins Two Regional Championships in Greensboro; Cedar Ridge’s Pardue Qualifies for State Championships

Updated: May 13, 2018

To go along with competing in the Penn Relays and taking two conference championships, Jamar Davis has added to his long list of accomplishments.

The Orange senior earned two regional championships during the 3A Mideast Regionals at Southeast Guilford High School in Greensboro on Saturday.

Davis captured the championships in the long jump and the triple jump, both events that he competed in at the Penn Relays and numerous national meets since March. On Saturday, Davis won the long jump with a distance of 22 feet, eight inches, beating Chapel Hill’s Terry Green by five inches.

The triple jump wasn’t nearly as close. Davis won with a maximum leap of 48-feet, 4 inches. Southern Durham sophomore Jordan Purvis finished 2nd at 44 feet, one inch.

It’s the second year in a row that Davis has won the triple jump regional championship. Last year, he won with a jump of 45 feet, seven-and-a-half inches. Davis finished fourth in the long jump last year.

Orange’s Morgan Paschall claimed the regional championship last year in the high jump. Paschall was unable to compete on Saturday because of a leg injury.

Davis will go for the state championship next weekend at the North Carolina High School Athletic Assocation Track and Field Championships at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro.

Cedar Ridge freshman Ben Pardue qualified for the state championships in the pole vault. Pardue finished fourth clearing 12-feet. Chapel Hill’s Jacob Hickerson won the regional championship for the second year in a row at 13-feet, 6-inches.
