Blake Deringer puts Pacific Crest Academy on the Map!


Not sure where he came from but he made an impact at the CYO Meet of Champions with his red hair and genuine great kid smile as he sailed to victory in the 400, 200 and 100 meter dashes!  A powerful runner with great speed and a lot of great qualities that will make him a much sought after high school athlete for sure.  Seton are you listening?

For those of you who are wondering where Pacific Crest Academy is, it is in the Camas area in Clark County Washington.  Pacific Crest has participated for several years in the CYO program.  Blake’s performance Saturday and Sunday turned some heads for sure including mine!
