Countdown to Nationals: Anthony Bravo, Staples High

Throughout the week, CT MileSplit will feature some of the top athletes that will be competing at the New Balance National Indoor Championships this weekend (March 13-15).

Anthony Bravo, Staples

This versatile junior is capable of placing well in both the long jump and the high jump. Anthony captured the NE meet with a five-inch best of 6-9, a height that could certainly earn him a podium spot. It's a leap that ties him for No. 15 nationally. In the long jump, Anthony has twice gone further than 23 feet, including his best of 23-10, which he did at the FCIAC Championships last month. He's currently ranked seventh in the country in this event.
