May 7, 2015 - Author: Admin

The State Track meet is over and while we have a list of results, that list doesn’t really tell the story of the dramas that unfolded.

Fresh. Lauryn Hall was our top finisher and points scorer, bringing home the BRONZE MEDAL for Sparkman in the 200m dash! She did so in the NEW PR time of 25.48 sec.

In the Boys Pole vault, Sr. Rob Russell finish in the points with a tie for 5th. He also tied his SHS record for the event with a jump of 14 feet!

Our Boys 4x800m team  (Soph. Jake​ R​ussell; Jr. Bailey Herfurth; 8th Shafi Muhammad ; Jr. Seth Graham) also scored points with their 8th place finish!

Soph. Gabrielle Griner tied for 10th in the Pole Vault with a height of 9’6″

Sr. Kelsey Joh​nson finished 10th in the 100H and 12th in the 300H finals – both in new PR times!

8th grader Charles Lewis finished 12th in the 200m, just 1/2 a second behind the school record.

Sr. Kai Perkins recovering from a back injury suffered just before the Section Meet, finished 13th in the discus with a throw of 95′

In the 800m – Soph. Jake​ R​ussell finished 13th and Jr. Bailey Herfurth finished 18th – both in new PR times!

Alessea Rice finished 16th in the 100m with a new PR time of 12.98.

Our Boys 4x400m team( (8th)Charles Lewis, (Sr) William Otey,  (10th) Chase Parker, (9th) Xavier Long) were really fast but finished 18th due to an early exchange issue.

Our Girls 4x100m team ( Fr. Lauryn Hall , Soph. Aubrey Parker , Fresh. Alessea Rice, Fresh. Chandler Robinson) finished 4th in the prelims (49:18 Season best) but had a violent mishap in the finals. Fresh. Chandler Robinson was tripped up by another competitor, fell and broke her wrist, yet STILL she finished her leg of the race! In the frustration that resulted though, our young team was DQ’d.

As you can see, a lot of stories here but  all in all one of Sparkman’s best, team showings since 2009 !

Boys-

Noticably missing was our Girls, State Qualifing 100m dash star Lauryn Hall whose slowest recorded time for that event would have won her first here – and our Top ranked pole vaulters who could not compete because Bob Jones failed to ready their pole vault pit in time for this meet. Rob and Gabrielle were seeded 1st in their divisions and could have brought another 10 points to their respective teams.
