HENDERSONVILLE Station Camp High senior Aaron Bristol and Gallatin High senior Kelsey Warren each won two gold medals in field events during Tuesday’s action at the 14th annual Sumner County Track and Field Championship Meet, the championship for Sumner County public schools.
Tuesday’s schedule at the meet – sponsored by The News Examiner, the Hendersonville Star News, Madison Trophy Shop and Sonic Drive-Ins – consisted of field events and preliminary heats for running events at Hendersonville High School’s Memorial Stadium.
Both Bristol and Warren won their respective long-jump and triple-jump events. Bristol’s best efforts were 20 feet, 5.5 inches in the long jump and 42-6 in the triple jump, while Warren paced the field with a 16-1.5 in the long jump and a 32-9 in the triple jump.
Station Camp also picked up victories in the 3,200-meter runs as senior Nathan Watson (9:36) finished 15 seconds ahead of Beech senior Nash Young, while freshman Faith Brown edged senior teammate Mikki Davis by .24 seconds to win the girls’ race.
Beech senior Ian Hafner cleared 6-2 to win the boys high jump, while Hendersonville sophomore Brooke Long’s jump of 4-9 won the girls competition.
Throwing events, originally scheduled for Monday at Gallatin High School, were pushed to Wednesday afternoon due to inclement weather.
After Tuesday’s four events, Beech’s boys lead Station Camp by 24 points, while Gallatin’s girls hold a 4.5-point lead on the Lady Bison.
Finals for running events are slated for Thursday evening at Hendersonville, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
