A&M Girls Take Tuscola Invite

The Central A&M Lady Raiders track team, the reigning repeat state champs, took Tuscola last Friday, out-pacing Sullivan-Okaw Valley, but some individual event favorites were challenged.

A&M scored 114 points, SOV had 87, and Neoga 74. Tuscola boys won their meet, Neoga was tied for 3rd (55) and A&M was 5th (50). SOV was 10th (16).

Amanda McClain of SOV won the 200 (26.2) and the 400 (58.79), but was beaten in the long jump by another state medalist Courtney Croy of Neoga. Croy was state-runner-up in long jump last spring, going 17-5.5 and McClain was 4th (17-4.75). However, McClain has won virtually every long jump competition she has entered this season.

On Friday, Croy went 17-1.5, while McClain came up short (16-10.5). McClain won the long jump at the recent Bi-County meet, going 17-2.5, beating Croy and her teammate Olivia Ott.

Mollie Bowman of SOV, who was 10th at the state meet last spring, has also virtually won every jump this spring. But Taylor Rich of Neoga bested her. Rich went 33 feet, 7.5 inches, beating Bowman by a foot (32-7). Bowman went 33-3 to win the Bi-County, recently. Kacie Hotze of Neoga also proved a field event winner in the high jump (5-0).

Ryan Dooley, had a tweak last week so didn’t hurdle. She went back at it on Friday, but couldn’t get past Kimbro. Dooley did, however, take 2nd in both the 100 hurdles (16.13) and the 300 hurdles (49.98). Bowman was 3rd in the 300s.

Helping the Raiders to 1st place was Salena Sloan winning the 3200 (12:46.16) and placing 2nd in the 1600 (5:45.09). Mikah Maples won the discus for A&M (123-11) and was 3rd in the shot put (36-1).

Jorji Sparrgrove scored a 2nd in the 400 (1:02.09) and 4th in the 200 (27.32) and 3rd in the triple jump (30-4.5).

The Raiders also scored high in the relays. They were 1st in the 4x8, 2nd in the 4x1, 3rd in the 4x2, 3rd in the 4x4.
