The boys’ track team earned their first conference championship in 21 years at the TRC meet at IWU. It came down to our 4×400 team, consisting of Nolan Kelly, Jordan Edgington, Aaron McKinley, and Shemar Austin, which took the top spot in the event with a 3:33 to put us tied with Whitko as co-conference champions. The win was a group effort scoring valuable points in most the events. Shemar Austin broke a meet record to only be outdone by another performer in the meet after running a PR of 49.98. Nolan Kelly also had his best 400 performance of the year with a 53.08. Both young men also placed in the 200 with Austin taking 2nd and Kelly 5th. In the long jump Gemini Williams was named conference champion with a 20′ 6.25″ jump and took 4th in the high jump. Our 4×100 team came in second after running a PR of 45.14, .11 off of first, with relay members Gemini Williams, Braiden Walton, Nolan Kelly, and Shemar Austin. Aaron McKinley stepped in to run the 100 for us and was able to secure a 7th place finish. He also managed to take 5th place in the 300 hurdles to help us score meaningful points. Jordan Edgington PR’d again in the 800 taking 3rd at a 2:06 and we are hoping he will continue to cut his time to place in sectionals and move on in regionals. In the discus, Vincent Smith and Paxton Kintner placed 4th and 8th respectfully. Smith also took 2nd in the shot put with teammate Jacob Shaffer placing 4th. Dalton Outlaw took 4th in the pole vault followed by Braiden Walton in 7th. Sam Bourne has continually improved his mile time each meet and did so again running a 4:57. Teammate Jacob Edwards also had a PR for this season in the 1600. We hope to continue seeing guys be at their best when it matters here at the end of the season. We will continue to work and prepare while he have time left on this journey. We have guys who are capable of moving onto regionals and I hope they are able to accomplish that through their diligence and mindset to never settle and attain more.
