Lady Cougars third in region track

This past weekend at Laurel Park School, the Cougar and Lady Cougar track and field teams competed in the Region IV Championships.
Conditions were prime for some quality performances as the teams had mild temperatures and sunny skies. As always this time of the year when the weather warms up, so do the Cougar tracksters.
The ladies were lead by senior captain Sabrina Hall and sophomore Amber Church. The Lady Cougars scored 45 points to finish behind team champions Blacksburg who finished with 121.
Church captured regional titles in the 100 and 300-meter hurdles races, (15.34 and 47.63), both of which were new Region IV records. Church also scored points by garnering second place in the triple jump (34 feet – 2 inches) and a pair of fourth place finishes in the long jump and high jump. Hall captured All-Region honors as she placed second in the 3200-meter run (11:18). Hall also ran to a sixth in the 1600-meter run with a school record 5:13.9. Her times in both races were National Elite times, giving her three National Elite times in the last two weeks. Hall also qualified in the 800-meters with a new school record of 2:23.5
On the men’s side the Cougars were able to grab two sixth place finishes and take 13th place over-all. Blacksburg won the men’s team title with 82 points. Seniors Cam Akers and Matt Wright both grabbed All-Region honors in their events. Akers had his best throw of the season (45 feet – 0 inches) and garnered his sixth place. Wright joined in the scoring by racing to his season-best time in the 400-meters (53.5) for his sixth place finish.
The four Cougars will be joined by Demetrious Brown who qualified for the men’s triple jump earlier this year and all will be moving onto next week’s VHSL AA State Track and Field Championships, to be held in Harrisonburg at Harrisonburg High School. We hope that all of you will wish them luck at this point in the season as they will be the only athletes representing Pulaski County High School in the post season.
