VYPE: How long have you been running Track & Field and how did you get your start?

VYPE: In all of your years of playing baseball, what is the one memory you'll never forget?
Hughes: That memory would be making it to the State TAPPS Track and Field 2021 Meet and winning 3rd in the Triple Jump in pouring down rain with a sprained ankle.
