    Proud papa here. A bit understated… Jackson won all 5 races, all 10 runs (a race = 2 runs), and his average margin of victory was ~2 seconds. 2 seconds!! That’s almost inconceivable on a hill as short as Ward. Most impressive is his attitude – very mellow and humble. A true scholar athlete representing Hopkinton High School at the highest level.
