Published 11:33 am Thursday, April 25, 2019

The Lincoln County track and field teams faced some tough competition pitted against athletes from Boyle County, Danville and Mercer County at Boyle’s All-Comers Meet.

That by no means led to a struggle for the Lady Patriot and Patriot teams. In fact, the two teams combined for seven wins, nine runner-up finishes and seven third-place showings.

The Lady Patriots would score a total of 85 points in the meet to finish second only to the host Lady Rebels, who won with 163 points. Danville placed third with 44 points. In the boys division, the Patriots finished with 66 points total to finish third. Boyle made it a sweep by scoring 160 points and Danville was second with 88 points.

Relays accounted for two of the Lady Patriot wins as both the 4×800-meter relay and the 4×200-meter relay teams placed first in their events. The 4×800 team of McKenzie Settles, Ava Morgan, Shayley Reed and Bailey Story earned the win with a time of 11:21.73 and the 4×200 team of Maddy Slone, Macey Rice, Settles and Story took first in 2:00.64.

Individual victories were claimed in the 400-meter dash and the 3200-meter run. Settles grabbed her third win of the day in the 400, crossing first in 1:04.95. Alexis Slone was at the front in the distance run, turning in a time of 13:54.26 over the two miles.

Each of the Patriots’ three wins were earned in individual events. Zack Hazlett ran first in the 400-meter dash in 53.05 seconds, Gabe Singleton led the field in the 800-meter run in 2:25.25 and Dalton Patterson won the 3200-meter run in 14:11.92.

The Lady Patriots scored big in the runner-up spot, claiming second in six different events. Senior field competitor Alexa Wesley clinched three of the runner-up finishes in long jump, triple jump and high jump. She went 13-05 in long jump, 29-10 in triple jump and cleared 4-04 in high jump.
