Students and faculty fill the Jacobs High School gym on Wednesday, Aug. 17 2016 to watch Jacobs grad Evan Jager win a silver medal in the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 8:04.28 at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Jager became the first American to earn a medal in the steeplechase since 1984, when Brian Diemer took bronze in Los Angeles.
