Track season could be over for Jesuit’s Edwards

Jesuit High senior Ike Edwards, one of the state’s top-ranked track and field athletes in the discus and shot put, has failed to advance to the Class 2A state championships following some disastrous results at Thursday’s regional competition.
At the Class 2A-Region 3 meet in Titusville, Edwards started the meet by failing to advance in the discus following two sector fouls and a throw of 128 feet, which placed him out of the top four qualifiers who earn berths in the state finals. Then, in the shot put, Edwards was disqualified from the event after the official allegedly overheard Edwards curse.
The incident is under protest by Jesuit coaches but Edwards’ case was not aided when he kicked over a trash can after his ejection.
Edwards is the state leader for all classes in the shot put with a mark of 57 feet, 2.75 inches and is No. 8 in the discus at 168-11.
