Top Sprinter Makhia Jarrett Moving To Virginia Beach


Makhia Jarrett of Enloe had been one of the states top sprinters early on in the indoor season and was a favorite for the NCHSAA 4A State Championship in both the 55m Dash and the 300m.

Jarrett is currently NC#1 in the 55m Dash with a season best of 7.17 and NC#3 in the 300m Dash with a a seasons best of 39.71.  

Last week at the Boo Williams Winter Break Invitational Jarrett debuted in her new uniform of Salem High School.  The Junior has moved to the Virginia Beach area where she'll now compete in the VHSL 5A Classification.  Jarrett's debut was a hit as she won the 200m Dash and placed 4th in a strong 55m Dash field.

Jarrett's current season best would put her at VA#1 in both the 55m Dash and 300m Dash in the VHSL 5A Classification as well as VA#4 overall in the 55m Dash and VA#1 in the 300m Dash amongst all classifications.

As a sophomore Jarrett held PRs of 11.84 for the 100m Dash and 24.00 in the 200m Dash.  We'll miss her in North Carolina, but we know she'll be a star for Virginia for the next two years!
