Southwestern Randolph, track and field

Shelton capped his high school career by competing in the Class 2A state meet for track and field. He qualified as a high jumper, finishing 11th in the meet in Greensboro.

Shelton was the only entrant from Southwestern Randolph in this year’s state meet.

He had success in other events as well during the past season. He competed in some competitions as a triple jumper.

He was an All-Piedmont Athletic Conference selection in track and field as a sophomore and senior. This year, he was the conference runner-up in the high jump behind eventual state champion Chase Farlow of Randleman and third in the league in the triple jump.

Shelton also played football for the Cougars as a linebacker.
