Stone track team off and racing in 2013

CROSSVILLE — The Stone Panther track and field teams got off to a good start March 12 at Karns High School, as both the boys and the girls finished fourth out of some very good competition.

The girls took a first- and second-place finish in the 3200 meters (two mile run) with Caroline Pribanich and Rachel Hutson, respectively.

Aly McNulty won the 100-meter hurdles and Rachel Raulerson finished in fourth place. The Lady Panther 4x800 meter relay finished more than a minute faster than the next team. The girls’ 4x800 meter team consists of Tiffany Cokkinias, Rachel Hutson, Caroline Pribanich, and Kerigan Smith. 

Kerigan Smith also ran the 1600-meter (one mile) events and just narrowly finished out of second place and wound up in third place.

Kayli Priestwood won the girls 300-meter hurdles by a rather wide margin. In the girls 800-meter run Faith Van Ruden led the way for the Lady Panthers with a solid third-place finish.

In the field events for the girls, Makayla Kington won the girls discus with a throw of 90' 5". Brett Suggs took fifth and Jordynne Walker finished in 10th place to round out the top 10.

Makayla Kington once again came up big this time with a second-place finish in the shot put with a throw of 31'7".

For the boys, Blu Shillings had a come-from-behind victory in the 300-meter hurdles with  a 45.7 second run, just three seconds off of the school record.

Justin Simmons finished in third in the high jump with a six foot mark. He was closest to tying the winner at 6'2" but just scraped the bar three straight times.

Brady Wattenbarger finished in third in the discus with Nick Bohannon in eighth.

Sam Caballero provided a spark with a second-place finish in the shot put event with Wattenbarger in sixth and Bohannon in eighth.

“All in all I am pleased with the way that we competed today. I really just wanted to see us come out and compete and we did. We will use the results from today make a few changes in practice as well as the meet line up and get better,” said Head Coach Matt Bates.

The Panther and Lady Panther track and field teams returned to action Thursday,  at Rhea County.
