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.

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.
