Tampa Prep’s Reiner commits to Bucknell

Tampa Prep junior Carly Reiner, a Class 1A district champion in the long and triple jump and a bronze medalist in the triple jump at the state championships, has made a commitment to Bucknell University.

Although a Division I school in athletics, Bucknell is similar to Ivy League schools in that it does not offer athletic scholarships. Instead, each sport at the school is allowed a certain number of slots from the admissions office in order to attract top-caliber athletes. Bucknell competes in the Patriot League, which has the second highest student-athlete graduation rate after the Ivy League.

At last season’s 1A-District 8 meet, Reiner not only won the two horizontal jumps, she also took fourth in the 100-meter dash and anchored the Terps’ 4x100 relay team to second place. At the state championships in Jacksonville two weeks later, she produced a lifetime best in the triple jump of 36 feet, 10.5 inches to take third place. As a sophomore, she was fourth at the state meet in the same event.

Reiner also medaled at the state meet as the anchor runner on Tampa Prep’s sixth-place 4x100 relay. In soccer, Reiner was the Terps’ starting goalkeeper.
