The Arthur Lovington Atwood Hammond jr. high track and field teams competed at the annual Mt. Zion JH Invitational on Saturday, April 30. When the teams first arrived it didn’t look as if there would be any competition as the athletes sat on the buses waiting for a brief storm to pass. The storm did pass and the meet was only delayed by about 15 minutes. While there was no more rain, the windy conditions that have been present at what seems like every meet this season were once again a factor in the competition.

This meet features several IESA Class 3A and 4A schools so it provides some very strong competition for the Jr High Knights heading into the IESA Sectional meet on May 14. Scoring in the meet is challenging but the young Knights did have some good results. The eighth grade boys recorded the highest finish in the team standings taking fifth in their division. The eighth grade girls were seventh, the seventh grade girls, eighth and the seventh grade boys were tenth. There were 13 schools participating in the meet.

The Knights had one individual and one relay that brought home first place medals. Easton Frederick won the eighth grade boys’ 110 meter hurdles and the seventh grade girls took first in the 4 X 1 relay. Members of that team were Riley Strode, Brynlee Moore, Sophie Monts and Cassidy Rohacs.

Other scorers for ALAH were in the seventh grade girls division, Brynlee Moore took second in the high jump; in the seventh grade boys’ division, Owen Herring was third in the 200 meters, Cooper Shoemaker, sixth in the high jump, Brennon Hutson, Tyler Lisanby, Shoemaker, and Herring were fifth in the 4 X 4 and Hutson, Shoemaker, Coye Grant and Herring took sixth in the 4 X 2 relay. On the eighth grade girls’ side Ruby Burton was third in the 400 and fifth in the 800 meters; Alex Clark placed fourth in the shot put and the 4 X 1 relay of Grace Romine, Addi Rohr, Skyler Graham and Burton finished fourth. For the eighth grade boys, Easton Frederick was third in the long jump; Payton Warrior was third in the 100 and second in the 200; Daylon Doggett too sixth in both the 200 meters and the 110 meter hurdles; Cruz Hale finished third in the 800 and fifth in the 1600 meters; a third place was earned by the 4 X 2 relay team of Dana Soard, Frederick, Doggett and Warrior and the 4 X 4 team of Frederick, Justin Schrock, Cruz Hale and Warrior placed fourth.

The Knights were to compete in the annual Jr. High Okaw Conference meet at Arcola on May 2, have a home triangular with Paris Mayo and Sullivan on May 10th and then compete at the IESA Class 3A Sectional at Shelbyville on Saturday, May 14. First place winners or those meeting qualifying standards set by the IESA at Sectional will advance to the IESA State Track and Field Meet on Friday and Saturday, May 20 & 21.
