Chiefland sends hurdler, relays to regionals

-A A +A
By The Staff

Chiefland track had a tough outing at the district meet held Thursday at The Villages. The nine-team field included area track strongholds such as Crystal River, Trinity Catholic and Citrus Inverness. Against such deep and polished teams, the Indians could only eke out a few qualifiers – all on the boys' team – despite some truly great individual performances.

Zach Tyson had the best performance of the day, winning the 300 hurdles outright. The boys' 4x800 and 4x100 relay teams both qualified. But some of the best performances for Chiefland were near-misses.

JaRobyn Rome and Meagan Morgan had the best individual performances on the girls' side, with Rome running an outstanding 6:07 mile – her best this season by more than 20 seconds – for seventh place. Morgan had a very good 25'6” best in the triple jump, also for seventh place. Genesis Cilo-Cilo missed taking the last qualifying spot in the 200 by .08 seconds and Chance Hall was very close to qualifying in the shot put.

Chiefland's qualifying athletes will travel to Lake Highland Prep in Orlando tomorrow (Friday) for the regional meet. Those who qualify from there will proceed to the state meet at Showalter Field, Winter Park High School, next Saturday, May 2.
