Alton standout track and field athlete LaJarvia Brown is ready to compete in the Junior World Championships on June 24-26 at Veteran's Memorial Stadium on the campus of Buchanan High School in Clovis, Cal.
Brown is seeking financial support to offset some of her costs for the trip. If anyone is interested in assisting her as she represents the community and Alton High athletics, please contact Terry Mitchell at 578-8326.
Brown will be competing throughout the summer before beginning her collegiate career at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas this fall. She is a four-time IHSA Class 3A state champion, winning the triple jump three times and the 100-meter high hurdles once.
Brown leaves for her California trip on Thursday.
