Claymont's Jasmine Grant Signs With Track and Field


Kent State University at Tuscarawas is announcing the signing of a Claymont High School graduating senior to their track and field team. On May 25, Jasmine Grant signed a Letter of Intent to throw the discus for the Kent State Tuscarawas Golden Eagles Track and Field Team.

Grant was a one-year letter winner for the Mustangs track team. She finished fourth at the East Central Ohio League (ECOL) track championship and competed in the district meet during her senior year. Grant was also a three-year letter winner in tennis and was named a Times-Reporter Best of Preps All-Star in 2017. She served as captain of the tennis team and scored the most points on her team in 2017. Grant played softball during her freshman and sophomore seasons years and held the team’s best batting average as a sophomore. She was a member of the Claymont Pep Club, Mustang Choir, Drama Club and served on the Students Against Drunk Driving Teen Institute (SADDTI).  She plans to major in nursing at Kent State Tuscarawas.

“Jasmine is a very hard worker and an all-around good person and we are lucky to have her on our team,” said Mark Albaugh, Head Track & Field Coach for Kent State Tuscarawas. “She did very well at Claymont for just having one year of experience in throwing the discus and we feel her best efforts are yet to come. She is very versatile, a very likable person and will very well be a leader and cheerleader for her teammates as she leads by example.”
