2014 North Alabama JV Championship

It’s the day after the 2014 Metro Area Championship and I am STILL trying to get warmed back up! At start time the temperature was 47 degrees and dropping with a NWS “High Wind” advisory in effect! Just before the meet started we had measured wind gusts in the Monrovia area of 22mph!

This didn’t stop our Senators though. Our JV athletes claimed 3 new Individual Champions and a Girls 4x100m crown!
Over all, we finished in the points in 18 events and had athletes take home 5 medals!
 Our Boys team finished 6th and our Girls finished 8th.

This was one of the best seasons our JV Track & Field Teams have had and bodes well for future Varsity squads!
(Full Results HERE)

Here Are Our New Champions!

9th graderJake Russell Won the Boys 1600M (last year he placed 2nd) and placed 4th in the High Jump.
Jake is currently the 9th ranked Freshman in the State in the 1600, just 15 seconds behind 1st.

9th GraderDaryl Bowden Won the Boys Long Jump. Daryl also took 5th in the High Jump (with a NEW PR) and took 5th in the 100m Hurdles. Daryl’s winning jump was more than a foot longer than his mark in last year’s Championship, in which he placed 9th.

9th grader– Gabrielle Griner Won the Girls Polevault. Gabrielle has been vaulting for Sparkman since the 7th grade and her win last night made her a THREE TIME JV CHAMPION in that event!
Even more remarkable is that in 3 years of JV Pole Vault competition, Gabrielle is UNDEFEATED. She finishes her JV career with a record of 15-0-0 !
When you take into consideration factors other than those she can control (weather, injuries, just pure bad luck), this is quite an accomplishment.
Gabrielle is currently the 2nd ranked Freshman in the state. Her record 10′ jump is equal to the girl in first but came later in this season.

And our Champion Girls 4x100m Relay Team has a lot of youth on it but that didn’t seem to be a problem.
The members of that team were-
(8th)Lauryn Hall, (8th)Milan Hunt, (9th)Aubrey Parker and (8th)Alessea Rice

Congratulations to our other medal winners!
