What a night for the Early Longhorns! Nine athletes will advance to the Regional Track Meet next week in Abilene. Area Championships were notched in the 800m (Ryan Hill) and the 4 x 400m Relay team consisting of Hill, Austin Revielle, Ethan Rhodes and Devyn Burns. This relay team knocked 6 seconds off their season best time, came in as the fourth best time and won it all. Running a 3:30.44, the mile relay team posts one of the best times by an Early squad in many years. Also advancing was the 4 x 100 Relay team of Jesson Tarrant, Alex Jacobs, Devyn Burns and Ryan Trompler, running a season best 44.95. This time is the best that has been recorded by a team from Early in at least three years, and perhaps longer. Jeramiah Fowler finished 2nd in the 3200 meters and will return to Regional competition for the second year in a row and also ran a personal best time in the 1600, running a 4:56 and placing 5th.. David Shields will advance in the 110m Hurdles running a season best 16.10. Rhodes and Timmy Smithson narrowly miss advancing in the 300m Hurdles with a fifth and sixth place finish respectively. Burns also placed sixth in the 200 and Ryan Trompler an placing 8th in the 100 meters. Carlos Moreno finished 6th in high jump and 8th in the triple jump to conclude his successful sophomore season. Miguel Elizondo placed sixth in the shot put with a distance of 40’2″. Brent Grooms will also advance, along with Mason Flippin, to next weeks event. Congratulations to all of these young men on their accomplishments to this point and good luck at regionals!
