TRACK: Stewart, Durbin named First-Team All-State

RICHMOND — Six local athletes were honored when the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association announced its 2014 All-State awards on Monday.

Madison Central’s Maryssa Stewart (triple jump) and Model Laboratory’s Hannah Durbin (pole vault) both were named First-Team All-State, while Central’s Mason Crump (1,600) and Sam Jones (discus), along with Model’s Darrian Botts (long jump, triple jump) and Reagan Cole (triple jump) were each named Second-Team All-State.

Stewart took the triple jump title at the Class 3A State Meet in May in Lexington. The senior trailed heading into her last jump, but posted a distance of 35-07.50 on her last leap to pass Boone County’s Jena Doelmann.

Stewart was the highest-rated triple jumper in Class 3A heading into the state meet.

She originally signed to play soccer and run track at Midway College, but she recently accepted a scholarship offer from Lindsey Wilson.

Durbin finished second in the pole vault at this year’s Class A state meet, posting a vault of 11 foot, 6 inches.

The recent graduate of Model is set to join the track and field team this fall at the Air Force Academy.

Botts was the only local athlete two be named All-State in two events — long jump and triple jump. She finished third in each event at the Class A State Meet.

The recent Model graduate is set to join the EKU track team this fall.

Cole finished just behind Botts in the triple jump at the state meet, finishing fourth in the event.

Cole will be a junior this year at Model.

In his final event of his high school career, Crump set a new personal best time in the 1,600 and finished fourth at the state meet.

He is set to join the EKU cross country team this fall.

Jones took third place in the discus at the state meet. He will be a senior this fall at Madison Central.
