Woodland track competes at Hiram


The Woodland High boys and girls track teams competed in a tri-meet Tuesday at Hiram against the host Hornets and North Paulding.

The girls predictably dominated the distance events at the meet, and were able to take some of the field events as well.

Carli Clymer took home first in two events, the 3200 with a time of 11:35 and the 800 at 2:27. McKenna Trapheagen finished right behind Clymer in the 800 and would win the 1600 with a time of 5:29. Lindsay Scifers and Baylee Evans finished second and third, respectively, in the 1600, and Trapheagen, Tess Cochran and Scifers took the 2-4 places behind Clymer in the 800. Cochran also placed right behind Clymer in the 3200.

Besides sweeping first place in the three distance events, Woodland received another first-place honor when Brooke Cooper won the pole vault with a height of 9 feet, 8 inches, with Karson Norris placing second in the event at 9 feet, 2 inches. 

Skylar Chappell made it five events won for the girls when she took the crown in the discus throw with a distance of 106 feet, 8 inches.

Morgan Cooper placed third in each the 300 hurdles and high jump, while Norris placed second in the 100 hurdles.

Markal Brown had a strong showing for the Woodland boys. He won the long jump with a distance of 22 feet, and placed second in the 200-meter dash and fourth in the 100.

Jonathan Holloway also took home a first-place honor for the boys. He won the 800-meter run, while the Wildcats also won first in the 4x400-meter relay. Jeven Reliford and Dustin Ivie were a part of that team, and they finished second and third, respectively, as individuals in the 400-meter dash.

The field events were good to the Wildcats, as well, with Sean Heath winning the high jump with a height of 5 feet, 8 inches, and Jimmy Davis winning the pole vault by clearing 13 feet, 1 inch.

Kurtis Feanny also had a strong showing in the throws, winning the discus with a distance of 131 feet, 7 inches, as well as taking third in shot put.
