Western Hills wins both team titles at County Championships

By Linda Younkin Published:

With a month left in the season, the local track teams are rounding into shape.

Tuesday they competed in the County Championships at Western Hills with WHHS capturing the boys and girls team titles.

In the middle school division Elkhorn’s girls and Bondurant’s boys won team titles.

“Things are going pretty good,” WHHS coach Mike Schardein said. “With the weather we got off to a slow start, but it was the same for everyone.

“We’ve had our ups and downs with injuries. Alaina (Hall) was out a good three weeks, and getting her back and running is tremendous. She’s a top threat in the 100, the 100 hurdles and 300 hurdles, and she’s a great addition to the any of the relays if we want to do that, too.”

Teammate Anna Curlin, who missed about 10 days with an injury, won four individual events — the 100, 200 and 400-meter dashes and the long jump — the most of any athlete at the meet.

And after its slow start, Schardein’s team is starting to hit its stride.

“We’re starting to get where we’re consistent,” he said.

“A lot of kids set PRs early in the year, and then they plateaued. Now they’re trying to get their times back down, and we’re adding more for them to do. Instead of one event a meet, they might be in three or four.”

Franklin County’s girls team took second Tuesday.

“It’s going very well,” FCHS coach Kevin Hall said about his team’s season. “We have a great team attitude, a good team spirit. Jackie Gordon Duvall is helping out, and she’s been great.

“Our high school numbers are a little down, but our middle school numbers are way up.”
Because Elkhorn doesn’t have a middle school track program, the EMS athletes practice with Franklin County’s team.

“In all the years I’ve been doing this, this is my most enjoyable year,” Hall said. “Jackie is our conditioning coach. She ran at UK (and Frankfort High) and has a lot of fun workouts. The kids are drawn to her.”

The Flyers and Frankfort tied for second in the boys team standings.

“We have some new kids out,” FHS coach Ed Fields said. “Devonte (Faulkner) ran the mile and placed fourth, and this was his first meet. I was happy for Rontez (Mitchell) that he broke 11 in the 100. He and Jalen (Washington) both broke 11.”

Like Elkhorn, Frankfort Middle has also seen an increase in numbers this season.

“I’m very happy with the middle school kids we have out here,” Field said. “For a lot of them this is their first time running, but they come to practice and they’re enthusiastic. They want to do this.

“I wish we had a few more eighth-graders, but I’m happy with who we have.”

Fields has also been pleased with Frankfort High’s team.

“Our high school team is having a good year,” he said. “Amber (Wilcoxson) PR’d in the 200, and Tika (Shaw) ran a fast 300 hurdles. She’s been working diligently in practice.

“We’re progressing. We just need more practice time. Jalen Acree won the shot put, and this was his second meet. I’m real happy for him, and I’m real happy with what the team is doing.”

FHS and WHHS have three meets left before regionals, and Franklin County has two. All three teams will be competing in regional meets May 10.
