After competing in local, regional and state events throughout the summer, Edmunds was part of a contingent representing Maryland in the annual Hershey Track and Field Games last weekend in Hershey, Pa. While he competes in numerous events, Edmunds was chosen to participate in the standing long jump event as athletes area only allowed to compete in one event.
