Posted on May 20, 2015 by


Cyre Virgo, a senior here at Fleetwood, once again finds herself in the winner’s circle. Virgo just won her second Penn Relays girls high-jump title.

When Virgo was a junior, she placed second. Just recently, Cyre jumped 5’ 10½” to reclaim her high jump title.
Cyre had set her own record sophomore year when she won in 2013 with a jump of 5’ 11¼” . She now is a two-time champion and also a Texas Tech recruit, where she will be continuing her education and amazing high jump skills.

“I really have no words for this feeling,” Virgo said. “I am just excited now to see what the future holds at Texas Tech.”

Virgo has been involved with track all of her four years at Fleetwood and will be attending Texas Tech to continue her success on the track.

“Winning Penn Relays for the second time feels amazing because it shows me that I have potential in college to accomplish many things,” Virgo said.

Winning two gold medals at Penn Relays was a dream come true for Cyre.

“I also feel like being there once before helped me prepare for the second time. I felt more comfortable there now,” Virgo said.  “I love to see all the competition as well, playing against internationals is a really great experience.”

Cyre’s friends and family have high expectations for her in the future at Texas Tech. They all are very supportive of her and proud of what she has done.

“Cyre and I have been day-one friends, and what she has accomplished so far makes us all very proud,” senior Shaq Cobb said.  “I can’t wait to see what she can do at the Division one level.”
