My name is Jacob Hyde, I attend St. Thomas More high school, in Rapid City, SD. I am class of 2020, and hope to run college track after. I work hard and am determined to do my best. I have competed in 2 sports through out high school. At the start of my junior year I have decided to not play football due to past concussions, and wanting to dedicate myself to track.
I started running track in the spring of my 8th grade year. I was able to prove that I can compete at the varsity level early in the year before we started competing in meets. That year I would run the 100, 200, 400, 4x400, sprint medley, and long jump, and triple jump. I would compete in the sprint medley running the 400 at the state meet.
Freshman year I would compete in the 100, 200, multiple relays, long jump, and triple jump. I would compete at the state meet in the 200, 4x100, and the 4x200 relay. I would end up with a 5th place in the 200 with a time of 23.22, after getting a SR the day before with a time of 22.86. We would go on to win the 4x200, and placing 2nd in the 4x100.
My sophomore year, I would go on to set multiple records and PR's. At the Howard Wood relays my sprint medley team and I would go on to break the meet, and school record. I would also make finals in the 100, but wasn't able to run due to weather calling off the meet the second day. At the State meet I would qualify first in the 100, with a time of 10.74, and a new school record, and then again in the 200 with a time of 22.11. The next day I would go on to earn 2nd place in the 100. We would go on to win the 4x100, and the 4x200 with a school record in the 4x200. I would win the 200 with a time of 21.88 and a new school record. I would later compete in Fargo ND at the Region 8 junior Olympics, winning both the 100, and the 200. Then a little later I would compete at the New Balance Nationals in Greensboro, NC. I would compete in the sprint medley and the Swedish Relay.
Outside of track, I am a great student, inside and outside the classroom. I am easy to get along with and will give you my best. I am active in our church and help in the community.
