Former Cane Bay Cobras standout Zane Jackson earned a collegiate accolade the first time he donned the maroon and gold for Elon University.
Jackson, a two-time state champion for the Cobras, was the first Elon runner across the line in the High Point University Winter Vertcross on Feb. 12. He was 15th in his career debut with a time of 26:50.59 in the men’s 8K and was named the Colonial Athletic Association’s Runner of the Week.
At Cane Bay, Jackson won the 3,200-meter run in track and field in the spring of 2019 as a junior and captured a cross country title in the fall of 2019 as a senior, setting the 5A state record along the way.
Jackson also won a Class A cross country title for Palmetto Scholars when he was a freshman.
