Tolar has strong showing at PK Relays

March 23, 2013

Returning early from spring break, the Tolar boys and girls track teams competed in the Possum Kingdom Relays in Graham last weekend.

The Rattlers captured four medals and were third overall as a team with 66 points. The Lady Rattlers claimed three medals and placed sixth in their division with 39 points.

The Rattlers had won their first two meets.

Munday won the boys division, scoring 144 points, while Graham was second with 87.5. Abilene Wylie’s 145 points topped runner-up Stephenville’s 101.5 among the girls.

“We ran well. They had to combine divisions because of teams, so we had a full day,” said Tolar coach Gregg Lee.

“Kids were running back and forth between running prleims and field events. It was a good chance for our kids to battle some stiff competition.”

While no Tolar competitors won a gold medal, several did bring home a silver for a runner-up finish.

For the boys, Kaleb Gilliams clocked a 52.73 to place second in the 400-meter dash, Rodie Brister cleared 13-6 for second in the pole vault, and the 1600 relay (Gilliam, Corbin Wood, Cory Solomon, Grant Winston) posted a 3:31.26 for second.

For the girls, Reagan Maberytook second in the long jump, going 15-1.

“Considering we did prelims and finals for field events and running events, and we did it all before 4 (p.m.), I would say that our marks are pretty good,” said Lee.

Tolar is hosting the Rattler Relays today.
