Narrows is a small rural community near the West Virginia border. Jarrett was valedictorian of his senior class. Many remember him for his track performances.In 2002 at his Mountain Empire District outdoor track meet, Jarrett received 5 All-District designations. Jarrett was 2nd in the Triple Jump, 110m hurdles, 300m hurdles, 3rd in the high jump, and 4th in the long jump. Jarrett went on to place in the 110m hurdles at the Region D meet making him All-Region and qualifying him for the Single A State meet. In 2003, Jarrett repeated the feat and was All-District in the same 5 events. At the Region C Meet, Jarrett was All-Region in the triple jump (2nd) and 110M hurdles (4th). http://mirror.milesplit.com/meet/results/8421 (Region C 2003)Narrows is a small community where everyone knows each otherand Jarrett was a shinning star and still is.http://mirror.milesplit.com/meet/results/3973 (Mountain Empire (2002)Please feel free to post comments and tributes here.
