Daniel High’s Andre Ivankovic, who won a pair of individual state titles, leads the way among area athletes on the 2012 all-state track and field team.
Beginning with this past season, the all-state team was comprised of the event winners in each classification, as well as those individuals and relay teams that met all-state performance criteria.
Ivankovic capped his junior season by winning Class AAA state championships in the 1,600- (4:21.85) and 3,200-meter (9:25.71) runs.
Two other Daniel distance runners made all-state because of their efforts in the 3,200: sophomore Gabriel Haughey, who was third in 9:54.04; and junior Matthew Geer, who was fifth in 9:57.27.
Pickens senior Hunter Harkins made the all-state team after finishing second in Class AAA in the 400 hurdles (56.09).
Among Class AAAA boys, Wren junior Aaron Gambrell earned all-state honors by taking the 1,600 in 4:22.79, and Easley senior Brandaun Addison did so by taking sixth in the 100 in 10.91.
In the Class AAAA girls meet, Easley senior Emily Lewis and Wren sophomore Alex Dixon made all-state by taking second (11:01.02) and fourth (11:34.54), respectively, in the 3,200.
Wren junior Arianna Pierre achieved all-state status in the 400 with her time of 58.43, which was good for fifth.
Daniel junior Amanda Trapp made all-state in both the 200 (25.37) and the 400 (57.33), finishing fourth in Class AAA in both events.
