REED CITY – It was quite a sports career for Noah Jones.

Jones enjoyed a strong career as a running back ij football for Reed City. But he’s also coming off a solid track and field career.

This season for the track team, Jones had several high finishes in the 100-meter dash and had a personal record of 11.75 seconds late in the season.

Jones had a personal record of 23.62 seconds in the 200-meter dash in the regional for second place and wound up 14th in the state meet.

Jones also anchored the 4x100 which won the Division 3 regional and finished 13th in the state. This was his senior season and he enjoyed plenty of success in postseason action.

“We’ve really coming together as a team,” he said of the relay squad prior to the state meet. “They can be as good as they want to be.”

In his younger years, Jones was not the anchor. But he was this season.

“I like to finish up the race,” he said, adding handoffs “is the key in every relay. You can have some fast guys but if you don’t have good handoffs, you’re going to lose.”

Jones was hoping to win the 200 at the state meet.

From his sophomore year, “I’ve improved a little bit,” Jones said, pointing out there was no junior track season because of the pandemic. “I feel I can kick it in at the finish and have a lot to give.”

Jones, at the end of the season said he was considering running track and field at Ferris State University.
