Persistence pays off

RICHMOND JUNIOR Dionte Marquez stirs up some sand when he lands to finish off a long jump attempt during the Class 3 state boys track and field competition at Columbia.

COLUMBIA – Dionte Marquez found a way to channel his anger.

The Richmond junior competed in two events at Class 3 state track and field competition, the triple jump and the long jump.

The triple jump, his first event at the May 25 boys meet at the Audrey J. Walton Track-Soccer Stadium, did not go as Marquez had planned.
