Dillon Peters is a junior-to-be basketball player and track athlete who won a Junior Olympics national championship in the triple jump in July.

How did you get involved in track?

Coach [Brandon] Marren and my mom [Wendy] got me involved. Freshman year in basketball, coach Marren saw that I could jump and he pushed me to join track. I would have never done track if he didn’t push me. That’s a true story. I wasn’t even going to do it.
