Track and Field
LEXINGTON - After two cancellations, the George Rogers Clark High School track team opened its season over the weekend.
"It has been frustrating," said boys' coach Dodd Dixon. "We have been talking about competing against the Louisville teams for almost a year when the meet was cancelled we seemed to lose focus."
The boys team was scheduled for back-to-back meets in Louisville and Rowan County only to have both called off because of weather. The rain caused the cancellation of all but two meets in the state this weekend.
Clark did participate in the Commodore Classic at Tates Creek.
Despite the rain, the boys' team posted a solid performance.
The boys were led by senior Tristan Jones who garnered two first place finishes in the discus and in the shot put. Jones scored a personal best in the shot with a throw of 48-06.25. Jones moved within inches of the school record of 49-3 set in 1987.Â
Jones was followed in the point totals by newcomer Aaron Gales, who earned 12.25 points for the Cardinals. Gales earned points in the 200-meter and 300-meter hurdles and pole vault.
Travis Connor placed third in the triple jump and third in the 100-meter dash, followed by Bryson Morton who tied for fifth in the 100-meter event.
Juniors Zak Hardiman and Daniel Rawlings also competed and marked Rawlings' return to the team and Hardiman's first outing with the team.
The girl's team entered a full compliment in Saturday's outing. In individual events, Brittnee Lane placed sixth in the shot in the pouring rain with a throw of 23-07.50. The 4x100 relay team (Katie Craycraft, Lauren Charles, Brittnee Lane and Jessica Henry) placed sixth.
The 4x200 unit (Henry, Sarah Hernden, Tabitha Graham and Brandi Gipson) placed sixth. The 4x800 relay team (Graham, Beth Sturgill, Jayme Farris and Hannah Cox) placed seventh.
"I am pleased that all the girls came out to run in the pouring rain," Liz Dixon said. "Saturday's meet took dedication."
