Wright, Green take home golds
From Staff Reports

March 27, 2004 -- ROCKWALL -- Led by a first-place finish from the 400-meter relay team and winning efforts from Kendall Wright in the high hurdles and Keelan Green in the 200 , the Sulphur Springs Wildcats took second place overall at the Jacket Relays before spring break.

The 400 relay team of John Hall, Keenan Clayton, Green and Wright turned in a time of 42.57 second, equaling the school mark of 42.5 set in 1990.

Wright also won the triple jump with a leap of 44-8, his best mark of the season, but while finishing second in the 110-meter high hurdles in 14.85, the senior strained a muscle and scratched from the remainder of his events. He is questionable for tomorrow afternoon when the team runs at Hanby Stadium in Mesquite.

Green won the 200-meter dash in 22.46 seconds and also won a bronze medal in the 800-relay along with Ivan Beard, Hall and Clayton, as they finished third in 1:31.00.

The 4x800 relay, comprised of Graham Northcutt, Ty Stephens, Brody Dyer and Victor Rodriguez, also placed third with a time of 8:41.04.

Jayden Spencer won another medal with a third-place pole vault effort of 11-6, equaling his best jump this season.

Rolaundo Wright had his season-best high jump, going 6-4, to take second. He also placed fifth in the triple jump at 42-3.

In the shot put, Jordan Jones finished sixth with a throw of 47-0.
