Boys Varsity Track · Braves Finish Strong at Regionals

The Braves track team was represented well at the Warsaw Regional last night by our 7 young men and 4 of them being seniors. Senior Jordan Edgington PRd in the 800 with a 2:03 and bumped himself up a couple of seeding places after running yet another very smart race. Gemini Williams was also able to surpass 6 other long jumpers to get into the finals and finish seventh at 21′. Dalton Outlaw has vaulted consistently well for us all year but didn’t have enough to PR again this week. Vincent Smith joined track for the first time this season and was able to match his last week’s performance after helping us out considerably in the throws all year long. We wish these gentlemen well in their future endeavors, appreciate all they have done for the Brave program, and look forward to hearing from them about their successes in the future. We also had some underclassmen get their first taste of regionals and we hope they can duplicate the trip next year but also add one more meet to their season by going to state. Paxton Kintner didn’t have the day he had been working towards in the discus but has made tremendous strides this year and we hope to see that continue into next season. Nolan Kelly and Shemar Austin both competed in the 400 and both were able to jump a few seeded positions from where they qualified running respectable times with Shemar placing sixth in the event. We have big aspirations for these gentlemen and the program next year and hope to defend our conference championship and get as many individuals as we can out of sectionals and in to regionals and hopefully in to the state spotlight. The future is bright and as long as we continue to put our best foot forward and work, our dreams will be possible. Be on the look out for our first summer track and field camp. Hope to have information out soon.
