The Junior Olympics will be starting Tuesday with the opening ceremony with the events starting Wednesday.

Terrell will be competing first in the triple jump Wednesday morning at 8 a.m.

Originally Wells would have followed by competing in her first competition Thursday at 1 p.m., but Wells has withdrawn from the 100 and 200 meter hurdles due to a knee injury. Wells will still be competing in the triple jump.

Meanwhile, Jennings first race will be Thursday at 11:40 a.m.

Subsequent times and days will depend on how the three do in their opening competition.

The three athletes got a send off Saturday evening with a banner signing ceremony at the Rec with everyone who wanted to, getting a chance to sign a banner to congratulate them or wish them luck with the three athletes names on it.
