RCMS Track start season

In April 10-16 Issue

On Monday the Russell County middle school boy's and girl's team traveled to Larue County for the Larue County Middle School Invitational.  

This was the first track and field meet for all of the athletes ranging from 6th to 8th grade.

“Considering this was the first track meet these athletes have ever experienced, they did very well.  

“They are inexperienced and they were nervous, but one would have never known looking at them race. This group of kids are up for any challenge and are all very determined to do well in any event they are placed in,” said Coach Misty Matney.

Heather Flatt, a sixth grader, placed third overall in the 400m. dash and finished well in the 200m. dash.

Ally Harris placed sixth overall in the 800m. run and fifth in the mile.

Selena Padilla placed third overall in the 100m. hurdles with a competitive time, even for high school.

All of the girls ran well, and are continuing to improve. All of these girls also run for varsity, so they are getting twice the experience competing at an early age.

For the boy’s team Trevor Robertson led the way with a first place finish in the mile with a time of 5:27.

“Being this Trevor's first meet he did great, and he will improve as he gets stronger and learns more on how to pace himself.”  

Taylor Ragle placed second overall in the 400 meter dash and eighth in the 200m. dash.

Allen Kemp placed sixth in the 800m. run and eighth in the mile.  

Zak Schultz scored in the shot put throw, being he has only practiced a few times in the event.

“I am extremely happy with their performances on Monday, and even more impressed by their determination to give each event their all.

They may lack in experience, but if each of the middle school athletes keep up their hard work and gain experience they will be hard to compete with they are in high school,” Matney said.
