CHS track and field participants compete in state qualifier
Fifteen Clover High School boys’ and girls’ track and field participants competed in Saturday’s all-day state qualifier.
“Even though none moved on to the final state meet, also getting rained on and sunburnt, they represented Clover High School very well,” said Blue Eagle head track and field coach Jeremy Smith.
“Congratulations to our athletes on a season well done,” he said.
Clover long-distance runner Ben Clark finished No.13 in the state in the 1600m run. The 4-by-400 relay team placed No. 18 in the state and Tenchi Her finished at No. 20 statewide in the 400m run.
Lady Cougars represented in qualifier meet
David Griffin, head girls’ track coach at York Comprehensive High School, lauded the team’s participation in Saturday’s state qualifier meet.
“We were represented in the 4-by-100-meter relay, the 100-meter hurdles and pole vault, as well as the shot put and discus,” said Griffin.
Griffin said the York team had new personal records of 51.8 seconds in the 4-by-100, 18.9 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles and a 9-foot, 6-inch pole vault.
However, “it was not quite enough to make the final eight for the state meet,” Griffin said. “Congratulations to all the girls for a memorable season.”
