H.S. TRACK: Indians, Lady Indians post 24 first-places, sweep regional team titles

SOMERSET — For the second time in three years, the Madison Central boys and girls track teams posted a sweep of the Class 3A, Region 7 track championships Tuesday at Pulaski County High School.

The Lady Indians steamrolled the competition, finishing with an astounding 219 points to second place Pulaski County’s 88 points.

Madison Southern finished third with 52 points.

The Indians, who fell just short in last year’s region, downed rival Pulaski County by 23 points, 191 to 168.

Southern was a distant third with 45 points.

The Lady Indians claimed first place finishes in 15 of the meet’s 36 events and took the top two spots in 3,200 meter run — Julia Manning and Melanie Manning; triple jump — Maryssa Stewart and Brittany Campbell and the pole vault — eighth graders Jadyn Hines and Marley Gross.

The Indians took first place in nine events and claimed the two top spots in the pole vault — Chandler Payne and Cameron Ikard; shot put — Sam Jones and Terrell Adams and 1,600 meter run — Mason Crump and Brennan Fields.

Central coach Robert LaDeur said his team did exactly what it set out to do, winning the events it should and getting great effort in several other events.

“We had been running great coming in and the confidence was running high in certain groups, the throwers were looking good, the hurdlers were strong and the distance crew was also so strong and the vaulters were great, he said. “We knew we had that in the bag, but there were other events that were coin-tosses that could have gone either way. No one underperformed, we had PRs in the jumps, PRs on the track, school records in the throws. I am just really proud of the group.”

Alexis Conner (100 and 300 hurdles), Maryssa Stewart (long and triple jumps), Kristen Parsley (100 and 200 meter dash), Brennan Fields, (3,200 and 800 meter runs), and Sam Jones (shot put and discus), each took first place in two events for Central.

Casey Dionne and Karrigan Moberly led Madison Southern with one first-place each. Dionne won the 110 meter hurdles and Moberly won the high jump.

All first and second place finishers qualify for the state competition Saturday, May 24 at the University of Kentucky.
