The 6-foot-4, 208-pound senior swept the discus and shot put events at the 3A state meet, helping the Greenwave to an 11th-place finish as a team. It marked the third straight state title in the discus for Lemmon. His personal-best throw in the discus of 209 feet, 6 inches set a Florida record and ranked No. 2 nationally among prep competitors in the event in 2019 at the time of his selection. Lemmon’s discus PR is the No. 35 performance by any prep boy nationwide since 2000. He graduates as the author of five of the 10 discus throws over 200 feet in state history.
Lemmon has maintained a 3.90 state CUM GPA in the classroom and has signed a national letter of intent to compete on an athletic scholarship at the University of Virginia beginning this fall.
An avid angler, hiker and cyclist, Lemmon has volunteered 400 hours of community service at the Marine Lab and Native Plant Nursery of the Sanibel/Captiva Conservation Foundation.
