HENDERSONVILLE Beech High had to finish strong to win last year’s Sumner County Track and Field Championship Meet, the championship for Sumner County public schools, but the Buccaneers didn’t want to cut it close this time around.
Beech won the meet by 102 points over second-place Gallatin, as the Buccaneers won five running events and had at least one top-three finish in all but one event on Thursday evening at Hendersonville High School.
Buccaneer senior Jordan Claybrooks won the 100-meter dash, while classmate Preston Tribble won the 110-meter hurdles. Beech won the 400-, 800- and 1,600-meter relays. The Buccaneers took three of the top four finishing positions in the 100-meter dash and 800-meter run.
Gallatin junior Edrico Briscoe won Most Valuable Athlete honors, winning the 200- and 400-meter dashes in addition to a second-place finish in the 100-meter dash and a third-place effort in the long jump on Tuesday.
“I practice hard all the time,” Briscoe said. “I felt great out there. I’ve been doing three laps every day to get ready for the 400.”
Station Camp senior Nathan Watson went 3-for-3 in the distance events, adding the 800- and 1,600-meter runs to his 3,200-meter triumph on Tuesday. All three victories came at the expense of Beech senior – and Austin Peay State University signee – Nash Young, who finished second in each event.
Hendersonville senior Caleb head won the 300-meter hurdles, while Merrol Hyde Magnet won the 3,200-meter relay.
Gallatin High senior – and University of Memphis signee – Adam Neelly won the shot put and discus throw on Wednesday. Neely won the shot put by 16 feet, six inches, and prevailed by a 58-foot margin in the discus.
