CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — St. John Paul II's Armando Rivera is closing in on a perfect high school career, at least in his marquee event: the triple jump.
The Centurions junior won the TAPPS gold in the triple jump for the third straight year. He took the first as a freshman two years ago and then again as a sophomore last year.
He'll have an opportunity to make it a perfect four-for-four next year as a senior. Rivera says he also hopes to be able to jump at the next level in college.
