Tiger Girls Tie for Second at Varsity Early Bird; Boys 8th

Mound City's girls had little competition in taking first place at the Varsity Early Bird, winning with 167 team points. Worth County tied with Rock Port with 50 points for second. South Harrison had just as little competition on the boys side.

Payton Adwell was third in the 100, getting a time of 13.68.

The girls speed relay teams both finished second. The 4x100 finished with a time of 56.31, while the 4x200 finished with a time of 1:57.92.

The two longer distance relay teams both placed sixth, with the 4x400 getting a time of 5:17 while the 4x800 got a time of 13:08.

Elizabeth Lyle picked up right where her sister Alyssa left off; the Tiger freshman won the High Jump with a height of 5 feet.

The girls placed two in the Pole Vault. Jessi Badell was 4th with a height of 7 feet. Tess Andrews was edged out on tiebreaks and also had a height of 7 feet.

Lyle's second medal was in the Long Jump, where she placed fourth with a distance of 13'9".

Another freshman showed some promise in the discus. Kennedy Galanakis was third with a throw of 87'5".

On the boys side, Brevyn Ross was third in the 200 with a time of 24.07.

With Ellis of Stanberry graduated, there was nobody to stop Brevyn Ross in the hurdle events. He won the 110 Hurdles with a time of 16.20, beating out Seth Cline of Albany, who had 16.54. Ross had little competition in the 300 Hurdles, his specialty event, as he won with a time of 41.73. That was almost three seconds ahead of his nearest competitor.

Two of Worth County's relay teams placed. The 4x100 was 6th with a time of 50.49. The 4x400 was also 6th with a time of 4:05.

Ben Badell placed in both height events for Worth County. He was third in the High Jump with a leap of 5'8", narrowly missing out on tiebreaks. He was also third in the Pole Vault, getting a height of 9 feet.

Caleb Parman was fourth in the Triple Jump with a distance of 36'4".

Drake Kinsella was fifth in the Shot Put with a throw of 37'10".
