Sullivan boys and girls run second
The Sullivan boys and girls track and field teams placed second in a triangular meet on Thursday at Clay City.
The hosts were first and Bloomfield took third. Team scores were not available.
“This was a meet that we just wanted to get through,” said Sullivan coach Jackie Ridge. “We have a lot of injuries that we are battling through and we are worn down just because of our low numbers and the weather, although it is the same for everybody.
“We had a lot of girls do very well tonight. It was good to have Whitney Newby back, although we are taking it slow with her.”
She was clocked at 13.59 in winning the 100 and ran with Abby Hall, Madi Followell and Shelby Hall to win the 400 relay in 53.72.
Newby won the 200 at 28.52.
Sophomore Shelby Hall continues her dominance in the hurdles. She won the 100 meter high hurdles in 17.52 seconds.
She was first in the 300 low hurdles (50.56).
“I know Shelby’s times are not where she would like because of the weather, but she is still undefeated in both hurdles,” said Ridge.
Followell was fourth in the 100 (14.75) and her effort of four feet and 10 inches tied a career best as she was second in the high jump.
Abby Hall was second in the 400 (1:12.59) and third in the 200 (30.37) and Sydney Akers won the pole vault at 7-0, was fourth in the 400 (1:15.6), third in the long jump with a career best 13-3 and threw the discus 87-2 to finish third.
Emma Willis won the shot put at 29-6 1/2 and Kylie Wagaman was second at 28-5 1/2.
Wagaman threw a career best 91-6 as she took second in the discus.
Sullivan boys coach Jeff Moore said the weather was better than it has been most of the spring.
“I think it was the first time we had ran all year without snow,” said Moore. “We are still moving people around and trying to find the right spots for everybody.
“Dakota (Caton) has been banged up and was second in the 100. We held him out of the 200.”
Caden McCrary was third in the 200 (25.84), Riley Smith, Charles Setter and Brady Kent were 1-2-3 in the 400, Matt Wardell placed fourth in the 800 and Dossan Lamb ran fourth in the 3,200.
Wes Bedwell won the 110 high hurdles with a time of 17.24 seconds. He was second in the pole vault at 11-0.
Daylan Curtis and Tristan Drake were 3-4 in the 300 low hurdles.
Nic Hornback and Setter finished 2-3 in the high jump, Setter took second in the long jump at 16-7 1/2 while Zac Lyttle and Dominic Jordan placed 3-4 in the long jump.
Cole Migliorini was third in the pole vault at 10-0.
Ike Chastain won the discus at 116-10 in his first appearance of the year. He also took first in the shot put at 43-5 1/2.
Bradly Calloway was fourth in the shot put.
“It was goog to see Ike and Charles both compete for the first time this year tonight,” said Moore. “The kids are showing improvement.”
Logan McKinney took third in the discus.
Both Sullivan teams will host the Arrows Relay at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Harry C. Jarrett All-Weather Track.
