Mike Hermes and Daniel Armstrong competed in the 2019 UIL State Track & Field Meet this weekend and did an outstanding job representing Friendswood High School and community.
Daniel Armstrong, in his first trip to the Austin state meet as a sophomore, finished 7th in the 400m dash. In only his second season at the high school he broke the school record in the 400 and has all the tools to make it back to Austin and we can't wait to see what the future holds for this young man.
Mike Hermes finished out his Friendswood Track and Field career with a 6th place finish in the high jump. While it wasn't how he wanted to finish of the season, he capped off an impressive high jump career in Friendswood. His resume includes numerous first place finishes in invitational meets, he's a 3-time District Champion, 2-time Area Champion, 3-time Regional Qualifier and 2-time State Qualifier. As he moves forward, and attends the University of Pennsylvania, we wish him nothing but the best.
Bruce Bolden is the FHS Head Boys Track & Field Coach.
