There is a reason Cobbler seniors selected Jasmyne King “Most Likely to Be Famous,” and her unfortunate injury at the state track meet has no one recanting their votes.
King, one of the most decorated athletes to sprint through the upstairs halls of Central High, won the state title for the 100-meter sprint before she tore her Achilles tendon during the 200-meter dash, likely sending her to surgery while her teammates finish up final exams.
Yet such is not the end for King. She’ll be attending the University of Miami on a scholarship and has shown that she has the character to overcome such an injury.
While King’s injury cast a sad shadow over the meet , there were breaks of sunshine for the Cobblers. Chad Hofkamp proved himself the fastest man in South Dakota high schools for the second year in a row, winning the 100-meter sprint title.
Congratulations to all the Cobbler athletes and coaches.
