RCHS Boy’s track team wins at Larue, Girl’s take second
In April 23 Issue
By Misty Matney
RCHS Track Coach

The boy’s track team takes away a win at Larue County on April 16th. There were seven teams in the competition and having the overall win was very exciting.

It takes every individual to do their best and contribute as many points as possible to tally up a high team score.

Results from the boys are as follows: 200 meter dash: Aaron Pierce-5th, Daniel Ortiz-7th, Jamison Meece-9th; 400 meter dash: Pierce-2nd, Nickota Wheat-4th, Jacob Blakey-9th; 800 meter dash: Robert Montville-5th, ; 1600 meter run: Trevor Robertson-2nd; 3200 meter run: Trevor Robertson-2nd; 110 hurdles: Jamison Meece-4th, Joe Meza-5th; 300 hurdles: Jackson Evans-2nd, Joe Meza-3rd; 4X100 Relay: 3rd & 6th; 4X200 Relay: 4th, 5th; 4X400 Relay: 2nd & 5th; 4X800 Relay: 3rd; High Jump: Landon Meece-1st, Chase Carnes-2nd, Jacob Blakey-4th; Long Jump: Jamison Meece- 3rd, Brett Huddleston-7th, Derek Tackett-9th; Shot Put: Codey Bell-6th; Discus: Bryon Ellis- 1st.

The girl’s team takes second place overall with some first place finishes as well.

Taking in consideration that the girl’s team is young, they are doing really good competing against experienced competitors. The highlighted results are as follows: 100 meter dash: Whitney Grider-5th, Kelsey Haydon-6th, Tara Salyer-10th; 200 meter dash: Whitney Grider-3rd, Kelsey Haydon-7th, Breanna Hudson-8th; 400 meter dash: Ally Harris: 1st, Emily York: 3rd; 800 meter run: Ally Harris-1st, Heather Owens-3rd, Kisha Fletcher-7th; 300 Hurdles: Katie Williams- 7th; 4X100 relay: 6th & 9th; 4X200 relay: 3rd, 8th and 10th; 4X400 relay: 2nd, 4th & 7th; 4X800 relay: 3rd; High Jump: Emily York-9th; Long Jump: Whitney Grider-2nd, Heather Owens-6th, Katie Williams-7th; Shot Put: Ashley Wilson-1st, Emily Wilson-10th; Discus: Ashley Wilson-1st, Chelsea Barger-11th.

The track teams traveled to Lexington April 18th for the Heart of the Bluegrass Invitational.

This was a large meet with 18 teams, most Class AAA schools, which have great training facilities to train on.  

The meet was held at Henry Clay high school, which happens to be one of the best facilities in the state for high school. There were several decent showings from some of the track members.

The boy’s 4X400 relay consisting of Nickota Wheat, Jackson Evans, Aaron Pierce and Daniel Ortiz placed in the top 8 teams receiving awards. Ashley Wilson was having a bad throwing day, but still managed to place 4th in shot put and discus. Whitney Grider placed 8th in the long jump after having problems with her steps in the event. Landon Meece placed 6th in high jump with an injured hamstring. Team wise they were disappointed, but they all gave a great effort.

I tried to explain the only way to improve is to run and compete against people that are better than you and will give you a challenge.

Big schools often intimidate smaller schools, but after realizing they can compete with individuals from large schools they will have a greater self confidence in their event.

I also try to explain just because these schools have the best to train with doesn’t mean that our team members cannot be just as good, they just have to have more determination.

The track team is on the road a lot this week traveling to West Jessamine Tuesday, Casey County for the AA Derby Invitational on Thursday, and the E.G. Plummer Invitational on Saturday.

A special thanks for the parents that have donated food, snack, and drinks for the athletes and their constant support as well as the support and donation of Powerade coolers from our local McDonald’s.
