“Wade had her best discus throw of the season with a 122-6. She did a great job competing and getting after it,” said Triston Abron, Sulphur Springs track coach.
“Massey ran a great two-mile on Friday, and then turned around and ran a great mile on Saturday. She finished in the top 10 in the mile. I am very proud of both young ladies for their accomplishments not only this weekend but through out the entire track season,” Abron said.
Massey had a time of 5:39.24 (10th) in the 1,600-meter run. In the 3,200-meter, she was timed at 13:03.38 for 13th.

Ivery did not made the finals in the long jump, his best distance was 20-6. He was disqualified in the 300-meter hurdles for running in the wrong lane for too many consecutive steps.
“Ivery had a disappointing 300 hurdles being disqualified for stepping out of his lane on five consecutive steps,” said Matt Young, Sulphur Springs track coach. “In long jump, Ivery did not make the finals. Spigner ran a solid 110 hurdles, had the 10th fastest time in the prelims but did not make finals. These guys both had a great track season.”
