State Meet Results
Another Track & Field Season has come to an end as the State Track Meet is in the books. (full results)
Our young 4x100m team turned in a clean race, difficult to do under the pressure of the State stage! They finished 22nd.
Jr- Kelsey Johnson ran a clean race as well in the 100m Hurdles but was off her PR by .20 seconds. She finished 22nd.
8th grader- Lauryn Hall ran a faster time in the 100m Dash than she qualified with at Section but was off her best time as well. She finished 16th.
9th grader- Gabrielle Griner didn’t have the day she was looking for in the Pole-vault. She cleared 9′ on her first try but couldn’t quite dial her jump in for the next height of 9-6 and finished in a tie for 12th.
Jr- Rob Russell had a much better day in the Pole-vault. He tied his School Record, PR height of 13 feet and tied just outside the points, for 9th.
Our Stars for this meet though, were Sr- Anthony Parameswaran and Jr- Kai Perkins .
Kai got off her 3rd longest throw of this year in the Discus, beating her Section qualifying throw and earning a 6th place in the STATE! This put her AND the girls team in the points!
Anthony ran two of the best races in his life, setting NEW SPARKMAN RECORDS in both the 1600m and 3200m! In the 1600m, Anthony finished just outside the points in 9th place. However in the 3200m Anthony placed 6th, putting the Sparkman boys on the Score Board!
Over all, of the 143 teams that made it to the State meet, Sparkman finished 28th in the Girls division and our Boys finished 25th.
