With his performance at the recent state indoor track and field championships, Polk County senior Jake Justice earned a spot in the New Balance Nationals Indoor meet in New York City.
In preparation for the trip, Justice is currently raising funds so that he and his coach, Henry Weaver, can attend the meet slated for March 8-10 at the New Balance Track and Field Center at The Armory in New York City.
Justice is seeking to raise $3,500 for the trip and has set up an online fundraising page to help support his efforts.
