Laker Track has busy week
The Russell County Track team has been busy competing putting in three meets in one week.

The season is winding down with two regular season meets left prior to the regional meet May 20 at Boyle County.

Monday, May 5, the middle school team traveled to Pulaski County Invitational with great outcomes. Trevor Robertson ran his fastest time in the 1600m. run placing first with a time of 5:12.68.

Trevor also placed second in the 3200m. run and sixth in the 800m. run. Ally Harris had a standout performance as well with winning the 400m. dash in her best time of the season.

Ally did well in the 800m. run placing second. Selena Padilla did well in the high jump placing 2nd after an upsetting false start in the 100m. hurdles.

The girls 4X200 and 4X400 relays placed second and improving their times.

Other results are as follows: Heather Flatt: 6th 200m. dash; Tara S.: 8th 200m. dash; Erica Mann: 7th 1600m. run, 8th long jump; Shelby Holder: 6th 100m. hurdles, 6th 300m. hurdles; Emmie Sweat: 5th shot put.

The middle school athletes will be traveling to Lexington on Saturday for the KTCCCA Middle School State Championships held at the Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School Track facility.

Given the effort, determination and placement of times compared across the state I believe Robertson will do well in the 1600 and the 3200m. runs.

He has some of the fastest times in the state for middle school boys, as well as being national ranked. Ally Harris also has a great chance of doing well in the 400m. dash and the 800m. run.

She is just a couple of seconds away from the top ranked girls in each of those events as well as being nationally ranked.

Selena Padilla also has a good shot in doing well in the high jump. Each middle school athlete has worked extremely hard this season and has enhanced their talent.

It will be very interesting to see where each of them will be in a few years after gaining strength and experience. I am very proud of each and every one of them.

Tuesday May 6th the varsity squad as well as the middle school athletes that had ran the night before traveled to the Rockcastle Invitational.

The results were as follows: GIRLS- Whitney Grider: 5th long jump, 9th 100m. dash; Ally Harris: 4th 400m. dash; Lindsay Ramage: 8th 300m. hurdles; Ashley Wilson: 1st shot put, 1st discus. 4X400 relay: 6th.

Ashley Wilson is currently ranked 4th in Class AA in the shot put event. With her continued success in the event and improvements in her throwing distance she will place well in the state competition.

BOYS- Derek Thomas: 1st high jump; Bryon Ellis: 1st discus; Trevor Robertson: 7th 1600m. run; Allen Kemp: 8th 3200m. run; Aaron Pierce: 9th 400m. dash; 4X400 relay: 5th; 4X800 relay: 8th.

Derek Thomas continued to be consistent in his jumps and prevailed over the competition.

Bryon Ellis also continued to lead the way for the boys with his first place finish.

On Friday May 9 the track team traveled to Boyle County Invitational.

There were many teams that were in our region present for the meet.

It has really hampered the overall scoring for the girl’s team by missing some of the team’s key runners, but in general the girls have stepped up and made things work.

The girls finished as follows: Whitney Grider: 5th 100m. dash with her fastest time, 7th long jump; Ally Harris: 4th 400m. dash, 7th 800m. run; Selena Padilla: 6th high jump; Ashley Wilson 2nd shot put with her best throw and 3rd in discus.

The boys finished as follows: Derek Thomas: 1st high jump; Bryon Ellis: 4th discus; Aaron Pierce: 6th 400m. dash with his fastest time of the season; Trevor Robertson: 7th 3200m. run; 4X400 relay: 7th; 4X800 relay: 5th.
