Aaron Patterson qualified with a third-place finish in the discus with a throw of 127 feet and four inches.  The 800-meter relay team of Prather, Ty Smith, Davyn Thompson and Jordan Brown finished third with a time of 1:31. Sam Smith finished third in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:02. Ty Smith finished third in the 200-meter dash with a time of 22.5. The Pioneers’ and Lady Pioneers’ 1,600-meter relay teams finished third. Kaitlyn Cotton, Angie ABo-Basha, Chablee Conner-Sanders and Woods made up the girls squad.

Coach Rusty Atkins said he was proud of how his team competed despite the weather.

“Weather was very bad — cold, rain and windy,” Atkins said. “The kids fought very hard. I’m extremely proud of their efforts in less than desirable conditions. We qualified what we thought we would be able to. Fell short in a couple of areas, but cannot complain.”
