MATT GREEN


BELLE VERNON  BOYS' TRACK



Despite competing at the high school level in just his first season, Green got a taste of the state's best competition when he participated in last year's PIAA Class AAA state meet in the long jump. The freshman initially fell just 2.25 inches short of qualifying for state, finishing fourth at the WPIAL championships, but when Butler's Mike Martin couldn't attend, Green took his place. A modest jump of 21-01  below his WPIAL leap of 21-09  put him 18th, but it was a great start for an athlete who will see more action at the state level.
