LOUISVILLE – Trigg County High School’s track and field team earned some valuable experience Thursday at the Class 2A State Track and Field Championship held at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.

Trigg failed to score points in any event, finishing at or near the middle of the pack in each.

The best Wildcat performance of the day was turned in by senior Matt Savage, who finished ninth out of 24 pole vaulters with an effort of 10 feet, 6 inches. He finished one spot away from earning a point for Trigg and was two feet behind winner Jordan Ellison of Casey County.

The Lady Wildcats were the defending champions in the 4x100-meter and 4x200-meter relay races, but half of each of those squads were youngsters filling in the gaps left by 2009 seniors Abigail Torian and Janada Acree.

The 4x100 team of Kelliniqua Acree, Khadijag Grubbs, Shelby Grubbs and Maya Bridges finished 14th out of 24 teams with a time of 53.63 seconds, over two seconds slower than winner Highlands (:51.28). The 4x200 team of Acree, Khadijah Grubbs, Shelby Grubbs and X’Zashea Mayes took 16th out of 24 teams in 1:53.17, nearly seven seconds behind Highlands (1:46.92).

Lynease Byers ran the 1600-meter girls race and finished 12th out of 22 runners with a time of 5:55.69. Pendelton County’s Kelsey McCain was the winner (5:27.24).

In the girls pole vault, Valerie Barnes tied for 16th out of 21 competitors at 6-06, three feet behind winner Laura Gieman of Highlands.
