RCHS Track and Field has much success at regional
In June 3 Issue

The Track and Field team had much success at the Class 2A Region 5 Championship on Saturday, May 29th located at Knox Central. With the toughest competition in all regions, all the athletes gave a great effort, which paid off for many that are headed to the KHSAA State Championship held at university of Louisville on Thursday, June 3rd.

For the girl’s team the 4X200 relay and 4X400 relays are both headed into the state championship.

The girls relay members that ran exceptionally well Saturday are Emily York, Bailey Bean, LeeAnn Grider and Ally Harris. It is really great that these girls are so young, as two are freshman and the other two are 8th graders, are making their debut at the state meet. It is an honor just to go, but these girls have high stakes in medaling there as well. The girls 4X400 relay team came in second at regional behind powerhouse Boyle County, and what has to be one of the best relay races for these girls from the entire season. They also broke the holding school record with a time of 4:22.39.

Ally Harris is also competing in the 800 meter run, as well as the two relays. It is an honor to go to the state meet in general, but to run in three events at a young age, it is a very exciting feeling. I am very proud of the accomplishments each girl had contributed this season, and it has paid off tremendously. The girl’s 4X100 relay did not qualify to state, but managed to break the school record with a time of 56.52, with the members being Emily York, Bailey Phillips, LeeAnn Grider and Ally Harris.The boy’s this year have been strong at each meet they have attended. The boy’s 4X100, 4X200 & 4X400 relay team all consist of the same 4 young men. Each time they have gained experience in their handoffs, and have built their speed throughout the season.

More than anything, these 4 young men have gained a great friendship and bond between each other, which has only helped their competition performances. The boy’s 4X400 race was the most exciting race of the season, and they each gave it a 110 percent on the track. These boys also broke the holding school record with a time of 3:33.32. Codey Bell qualified for the state meet throwing the shot put in a total distance of 41-6 feet.  Aaron Pierce did not qualify in the triple jump, but jumping in a meet for the first time this season he broke the school record with a jump of 35-6.5 feet.
