Hall of Fame induction: 2015
One of the top performers in state outdoor track & field history, Roberts won 14 gold medals with 18 top-three finishes from 1994-98 for Tower Hill. Mike won Division II titles in the high jumps (five – the first as an eighth grader), four in the triple jump, two in the 300m intermediate hurdles, two in the long jump, and one in the 110m high hurdles. His 49’ 5½” jump in the triple jump at the 1998 state meet was the state record until Marquis Dendy broke it in 2010. His 6’8” high jump ranks number seven all-time in Delaware.
Roberts went on to excel at Seton Hall, where he earned All-American status with an eighth-place finish in the triple jump at the 2002 NCAA Outdoor Championships. He was a finalist in the 2004 U.S. Olympic Trials, placing tenth.
