2014 AHSAA Indoor Track Championships!
Due to the resent winter weather, The AHSAA State Indoor Track meet HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED for Mon & Tues Feb 3rd& 4th.
This year Sparkman has four athletes representing us at that meet.
For the Girl’s –
Junior Kelsey Johnson will be competing in the 60 METER HURDLES and the TRIPLE JUMP. Her PR time of 11.07 in the hurdles is .48 seconds off of the school record but she will have to shave yet another half second off of that to break into the top 10 in this highly competitive event.
Kelsey DOES own the Sparkman School Record, in the Girl’s Triple Jump with a mark of 30′-1″ , a mark that is good enough to have her seeded 15th! To break into the top 10 in this event she will probably need to improve by a foot and a half but we think she can do it.
Freshman, Gabrielle Griner will be competing in the POLEVAULT.
Her indoor mark of 8′-6″ has her seeded 10th in this event but that mark is a foot under her Sparkman, Girl’s Outdoor Record mark of 9′-6″ which she set at the end of last season. If she can find a way to equal that mark indoors she could very well finish in the points!
For the Boys –
Junior, Rob Russell will be competing in the POLEVAULT.
His current PR mark of 11′ has him seeded in 19th. The distance between him and a points finish, is a crowded 1.5 feet but Rob has recently purchased a new pole and in practice has shown that this, School Record tying height, is within his reach.
and Freshman Jake Russell will be taking on the 800 METERS, 1600 METERS and the HIGH JUMP!
Jake currently holds the school record in the indoor 800 meters and is poised to own the record for the other two events. He is within 1 second of 1600m record and just 2 inches below Sparkman’s High Jump record.
Good luck and LET’S GO SENATORS!
