WCHS track and field competes at state meet

The Woodford County High School track and field team competed at the

State Class 3A Championship June 12 at the University of Kentucky. The

Lady Jackets placed 16th out of 40 teams that scored points in the

event. The WCHS boys’ team did not place.

“Qualifying for state out of our Region is a major goal,” said WCHS

Track Coach Tracey Sobolewski. “Our athletes worked extra hard and

sacrificed throughout the season with our COVID restrictions. Their

experience competing at our 3A State level will carry over for our

seniors competing in college and our returning athletes will be setting

even higher goals next season.”

Kamari Black was runner-up in the long jump (17 feet, nine inches); she

also placed fourth in the triple jump (35 feet, 10.75 inches) and was

fifth in the 100-meter dash (10.55).

“Placing at state meant a lot to me because it was my last year to try,”

said Black. “We lost a year to COVID, and I knew I had to come out and

give my best, and I know I left it all on the track.”

Maya Gudger finished 18th in the 100-meter dash (13.20); Callie Gormley

finished 15th in the 100-meter hurdles (16.95) and 11th in the long jump

(16 feet, 2.75 inches); and Raegan Hash finished 21st in the discus (82

feet, 11 inches).

The girls’ 4x100 relay team of Gudger, Ana Ruvalcaba, Gormley and Black

finished 19th (53.65).

Jackson Gordon finished 11th in the boys’ 400-meter dash (50.97), and

the boys’ 4x800 relay team of Sawyer Ford, Jase Crume, Jackson Moffett

and Jackson Gordon finished 17th (8:37.47).

“State helped me in managing my expectations,” said Crume. “It helped me

see where my times need to be to make it to the highest level. My

biggest goal for high school track is to be a state champion in the 1600

meter run. After high school, I hope to run for a D1 school.”

Grant Garrison placed ninth in the discus (142 feet, seven inches) and

was 22nd in the shot put (37 feet and a half-inch).
