Junior Travon Newsome helped his Beddingfield High boys indoor track and field team take second place in the 2-A Eastern Plains Conference championship meet last week, making him this week’s Thomas Law Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week.
Travon placed third in the 300-meter dash and was fourth in the 55 dash while running on the Bruins 4x200 and 4x400 relays, both of which finished second. Beddingfield finished second behind host Nash Central in the boys team results.
Travon will compete in the 55 dash Saturday at the North Carolina High School Athletic Association 1-A/2-A indoor championships at JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem.
The son of Travis and Jessica Newsome of Wilson, Travon maintains a B average at Beddingfield, where he plays football and sings in the chorus. He is a member of the vocal ensemble.
Travon plays piano at his church, St. James Holy Church in Stantonsburg. He runs for the Panthers Elite track and field club, based in Greensboro.
