Scrappers finish third in second home meet of the year


psdNASHVILLE – The Nashville Scrappers played host to the annual Coca Cola Relays Tuesday, placing third overall while the Scrapperettes managed a sixth place showing.

Arkansas High won both divisions of the meet with over 170 points scored in each.
Nashville’s boys earned their placement without winning a single event, instead racking up enough second and third place ribbons to remain competitive. The Scrappers’ 4x100m and 4x800m relay teams did their jobs in 45.47 and 9:00.76, bringing in a pair of second place finishes, while Trace Beene claimed the runner-up position in the pole vault with an 11’6” effort. Jordan Williams was the only other second place finisher, completing the 800m run in 2:11.42 to place himself among the team’s top competitors.
Finishing third were Kiawan Wynn (100m dash, 11.42), Warren May (400m dash, 54.70), Ignacio Perez (1600m run, 4.58.49; 3200m run 11:03.19), the 4x400m relay team (3:45.27), Trey Hughes (triple jump, 42’9”), Nick Myers (pole vault, 11’) and Kirby Adcock (discus, 127’7”). Hughes also took fourth in the high jump with a 5’10” effort, while Sam Cogburn earned similar placement in the 100m hurdles (16.54) before going on to place sixth in the 300m hurdles (44.36) and high jump (5’8”).
Jarvis Holmes threw a 40’9” shot put to take fifth in the event, making him the only athlete on Nashville’s “A” team to earn that placement. Matthew Carver finished sixth in both the 1600m run (5:27.94) and 3200m run (12:08.35), while seventh place finishers were Robbie Morphew (800m run, 2:15.38) and Dillon Honea (discus, 112’10.5”).
Some scoring was also done by Nashville’s “B” team, most notably by JaCoree Walker, who took third in the long jump with a 19’8” performance. Ladarius Daniel also scored for the squad, placing fifth in the pole vault with a 10’6” leap, while May and Joel Thurman earned a pair of eighth place finishes in the 200m dash and shot put.
Kirby Adcock also placed for the “B” squad, earning a seventh place ribbon in the shot with a 39’5” toss.
Nashville’s girls were led, as they usually are, by LaTrice Wiley and Asia Munn. Wiley was fourth in the 100m dash (13.43), fifth in the high jump (4’8”), fourth in the long jump (15’2”) and fifth in the triple jump 31’10.25”. Munn, meanwhile, claimed third in the 100m hurdles (17.46), sixth in the 300m hurdles (57.44), fourth in the high jump (4’8”) and fourth in the triple jump (32’2”).
Sadie Leeper was the only other Scrapperette to score, taking seventh in the 1600m run with 7:12.09.
