Wrapping up
Wednesday, April 26, 2017

   The Battle of Old Shell saw our boys team end up tied with St Pauls and McGill-Toolen the winner and the girls coming in third. The boys 4X100 was a winner, and Anna Hunt, Gracie Hunt, and Aryn McDowell won their events for the girls big points. 

We voted on team captains and seniiors Jack Pugh and Gracie Hunt were selected by their teams to lead them through the remainder of the season.

 On Thursday the 20th we traveled to Brewton and T R Miller for a 16 team meet. This is the first time we have made one of their meets and it was run very well and we had a chance to run against some teams we never see or only at sectional or state. We put together a pretty good meet and were able to win both the girls' and boys' divisions. Hopefully this is a good lead up to the Sectional and State qualifying meet on Friday the 28th and 29th at Montgomery Academy.

    A lot of track in a couple of weeks.  We have hosted another successful Lyon Newell Charity Throws Meet/Fast Times. We had 23 teams and our boys team defended the title from last year winning their division of the throws meet with solid scoring by Seniors Michael Matthews and Paul Pluscht.

  Two days later we competed in the Southeastern Relays held at USA, placing 4th in both divisions. We then hosted a JV/MS meet on Wednesday the 29th and came back on Friday to start off our spring break with the Meet of Champions Open Division. We had over 1600 athletes from 60 schools in our meet.On Saturday we had two athletes competing in the Invitational Division---Aryn McDowell 8th in the triple jump, and Gracie Hunt 7th in the High jump.  

  Not to rest on our laurals, on Wednesday and Thursday of spring break, the boys took 5th place out of 22 teams and the girls ended up 12th.

2017 Season Openers
Tuesday, March 14, 2017

  The 2017 spring seaon has opened up with our first two meets. The Mc-T Angelo Harris Invitational was held over the Mardi Gras break and on the 11th we competed in the 25th St Pauls Relays.                      The Mc-T meet had us a little short handed being over the break, but we got to use some new and younger athltes that got some good experience early in the season. Our girls ended up 8th out of 13 teams and the boys were 7th out of 14.  Seniors Paul Pluscht and Riley Davis both had good meets , Paul in the three throwing events and Riley with solid races in the hurdles and the relays.  In the girls Ellen Chitty, Aryn McDowell, and Sara Francis Phillips all had a top three performance with Aryn winning the long jump.

  We had a little stronger showing at the relays with the girls at fourth and the boys at fifth. Good field events in both divisions helped in the scoring. Aryn Mcdowell again in the triple and long jump and Gracie Hunt winning the high jump and the long jump were the mainstays for the girls. The throwing events in the boys were the biggest point getters with Paul Pluscht in javelin and shot and discus and Michael Matthews win in the shot leading those events.

  The week of the 13th through the 18th will have us in our first JV/MS meet held at UMS-W on Wednesday and then the varsity on Saturday in the Port City Invitational at Murphy.
