Hometown Hero: Augustus Karweh

This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Hero is Central’s Augustus Karweh.

The reigning Outdoor High Jump champion is once again leading the RIIL in the event, as he looks to bring home his second gold.

Karweh only began competing in the event last Winter, and his success is attracting attention from college recruiters.

If he can top his personal best of 6’10 and continue to excel in the classroom, the senior should have his pick of schools for next Fall.
