SMHS track team shows improvement at Dale Legg Invitational last Friday

CROSSVILLE — The Lady Panthers and Panthers of Stone Memorial picked up an extra meet last week as they headed to Anderson County High School for the Dale Legg Invitational Meet.

“We added this meet due to the high caliber of teams in attendance and it will also allow us a good 12 days to rest our runners as we head into the post-season meets," said Coach Matt Bates.

The girls finished seventh out of the 26-team field, while the boys finished 15th.

“I told the team before we got off the bus that this was their last shot to set personal records before sub-sectionals and, if they want to improve their seed, this was it. We had several improvements. Now, we can head home and focus on just us for the next several days and get healed up for the post-season run ahead, added Bates.

In the long jump, Lacey Melton jumped 14’11” just shy of the school record by one half inch. She finished in eighth. 

Aly McNulty jumped 4’10” to win the high jump competition once again. 

In the shot put, Melton threw 28’, which put her in the ninth spot.

In the shot put, Dakota Karge threw 38 9¼” to grab eighth place.

In the 4x800 meter relay, the team of Hailey Coudriet, Lexi Hinch, Bailey Rutledge and Kayli Preistwood broke the school record with a time of 10:36.29 to finish in second place.

The girls 4x400 meter relay team of Lexi Hinch, Kayli Preistwood, Hannah Turner, and Bailey Rutledge finished in eighth with a time of 4:41.39.

In the 4x800 meter relay, the boys team of Blu Shillings, Dawson Hassler, Jordan Schroeder and George Sampley set a new personal best with a time of 9:13.15 and finished in sixth place. 

In the 4x200 meter relay, the team of Dylan Greenwood, Ethan Pierce, Blu Shillings and Brian Frye improved their time to 1:38.83 to finish in sixth place. 

In the 4x100 meter race, the boys team of Pierce, Shillings, Frye and Greenwood improved their time to 48.72 seconds and finished in the top 10.

The 4x400 meter relay team of Pierce, Shillings, Frye and Joe Staton ran a season-best time of 4:56.77 to finish tenth.

In the 100 meter hurdles, Aly McNulty improved her time to 17.66 seconds and finished in fourth place.

In the 300-meter hurdles, Kayli Preistwood ran 50.37 seconds race to finish in third place.

In the 300 meter hurdles, Blu Shillings ran a 46.40 seconds race to grab sixth place.

Bailey Rutledge ran the Open 800 meter race for the first time this season with a time of 2:41.87 to win her heat and finished 13th.

Hailey Coudriet finished in second place in the 3200 meter race with a time of 12:13.80.

Jordan Schroder set a new personal best in the 3200 meter race with a time of 11:00.84.

“I am pleased with the results of today. We are better today as we leave Anderson County than we were when we arrived at Riverdale back on March 14. Now, we are going to rest up and heal up and get ready for the post-season push and try and get as many to state as we can,” said Bates.

The Lady Panther and Panthers will take some time off from competition and focus on themselves. They will return to action May 6 at the sub-sectional meet at Rhea County. On May 6, all field events will take place. On May 8, all running events will occur.

(Editor's note: The results published in Tuesday's paper taken from the web site.)

  • The truth about driver distance

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
