Class: Junior.

Sport: Track and field.

The week: Skelton shined in the Kaws' season opener, winning the long jump (15-5 1/4) and triple jump (32-1/2) at the Baldwin Invitational. She also placed second in the 400-meter run and anchored Perry's 4x400 relay to help the Kaws take second in the team standings.

Comment: "Right now she's doing what she did at the end of last year," P-L coach Frank Harwood said. "It's somewhat unexpected to start the season where you left off in May. She's pretty versatile. She does what the team needs her to do. Her main focus is the jumps."
