Merced student wins National Junior Olympic title

The good news coming out of Merced about Jesus Haro just wont stop. Yesterday, the 14 year-old Golden Valley High School student won the National Junior Olympic Title in boxing, bringing home the gold medal for a third time. He faced off against Jahmal Harvey in the championship fight held in West Virginia yesterday morning.

The 11-time national champion next will travel to Mesquite, Nevada for the National Jr. Golden Glove tournament July 16-23, and then will head to Kansas for the ringside world tournament July 25-August 1.

Great job representing Merced Jesus! We are very proud of your hard work and accomplishments!
