The Jefferson High School track and field team continued to mount its season best performances during a meet on March 26 against East Jackson Comprehensive High School.
Boys’ coach Tim Corbett singled out some notable performances in the running events, in particular. Pate Sheppard (56.36), Gage Lawson (54.84) and James Howard (53.41) in the 400-meter race; Tradd Porter in the 4-by-400 relay; Josh Lester (12.39), Ethan Hix (12.63) and Tyler Bowen (12.43) in the 100; Alex Parrish (11:28) in the 3200; Jason Bosson (2:39, 5:30) in the 800 and 1600.
“We are always looking at performances and fortunately for us we had over 25 season best performances on the day,” Corbett said. “I was pleased with our effort, but did find some concern in our field event performance.”
