Anthony Victa (’19) of Laguna Hills high school has gone local good to regional good in a matter of months. Anthony found the LEAP Squad track club in September of 2017. Coach Briggs put him right into his off-season base training cyle, fast forward we are only 3 track meets in and Anthony has already gained 2′ in his triple jump and is flirting with a new personal best in the long jump.
“The part that is scary is Anthony has his these new marks from a half approach, right now he is projected to be around 46′ by the end of season assuming everything works as planned.” Coach Briggs.
To put this distanced into perspective: his old triple jump personal best of 41’11 would have placed him 9th overall at the OC Championships 2017, this current mark of 44’0 would have placed him 2nd. His very reachable mark of 46’0 has in him in competition for the division III triple jump title as he is the 1″ shy of being the #1 returner in the division.
Anthony Victa will be competing Saturday February 10 at the Redondo Union Winter All-Comers as he hopes to improve his marks
