Roundup includes Frost, Kerens, Dawson

Corsicana — The Frost Lady Polar Bears made a shambles of their district track & field meet last week, scoring 206 points, and they were dominate again in the area meet Thursday, scoring 162 points to win the meet at Blooming Grove.

The top four advance to the region meet, and Frost qualified for the region meet in nine individual events and all three relays.

JoAnna McCreless won the 100 meter hurdles (22.31) and finished second in the 300 hurdles, losing to teammate Jae Moore, who won the event in 58.24. Moore also finished second in the discus and second in the high jump. Hillaree Schwartz was third in the 400 and fourth in the long jump and Kennah Kennedy advanced to the region meet with fourth-place finishes in the 100 and triple jump.

Frost's 4x200 relay team of Maria Suaste, Kaycee Bowling, Jennifer Andrews and Heather Montgomery won the event in 2:04.56. The 4x100 relay teams, which consists of Diana Rios, Bowling, Kennedy and Schwartz took second and the 4x400 team of Moore, Rios, Kennedy and Schwartz took second as well.

The Frost boys team took second place in the meet with 95 points and will send four individuals and all three relay teams to the region meet. Austin Stamper won the discus (108-1) and was third in the shot put and Sammy Manrriguez finished fourth in the 1,600 and 3,200. Alex Cruz was second in the 110 hurdles and Laton Eastman finished fourth in the 300 hurdles.


The Kerens girls were once again impressive on the track as the LadyCats finished second in their Class 1A area meet at Crockett. Kerens qualified in six individual events and two relays.

Breanna Baxter took first place in both the triple jump and high jump and Cambree Betts was third in the high jump.

Hannah Hall, who won the state title in powerlifting last month, took first in the shot put and Tinesha Tolliver was third in the discus. Emmanuella Armant finished fourth in the long jump and Brooke Quinn was fourth in the 3,200.

The 4x100 relay team of Marqueshia Kelly, Armant, Caroline Kamp and Baxter took second, and the  4x200 relay team of Kelly, Baxter, Armant and Ashlie Thompson finished second.


Dawson's track & field teams also did well at Crockett.

Seth Lachney won the 3,200 in 10:38 and was second in the 1,600 to lead the Dawson boys and Courtney Warren led the girls by qualifying in five events — the long jump, triple jump, 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles, and as a member of the 4x400 relay team.
