A Bogalusa track/field athlete has made the all-state team.

Raheem Roberts is a 2020 Louisiana Track and Field Coaches Association All-State Team triple jumper.

This year, Roberts captured the Division 2 indoor triple jump state title after posting a distance of 45 feet, 4.25 inches.

Most of this year’s outdoor track/field season was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year at the outdoor state meet, Roberts hit the podium with a state runner-up finish in the triple jump after going for 44-8.25.
