It wasn’t quite a home meet for Cold Springs on Friday, but the Eagles’ results told a different story.
Cold Springs finished second to Class 5A Arab in both the girls’ and boys’ divisions at the annual Cold Springs March Invitational. The meet, however, was held at Corner High due to ongoing track renovations on the Eagles’ campus.
The girls finished with 126 points, just 1.5 shy of the first-place Knights.
Katie Self was big for Cold Springs, finishing first in shot put with a throwing distance of 29’8”. She also took home third-place finishes in the discus and javelin.
Teammate Christian Wilson leaped to first in the high jump with a 4’10” result.
Kramer Crider won the 1,600-meter run for the second time in as many meets with an impressive time of 4:55.08. He also claimed second in the 3,200-meter run.
Vince Stewart (triple jump), Logan Campbell (pole vault) and Justin Jones (javelin) also helped the Eagles with respective individual victories throughout the day.
Other local schools that participated included Good Hope and Holly Pond.
The Lady Broncos earned a fifth-place finish due to strong performances from Megan Barksdale and Mykenzie Heaton.
Barksdale claimed second and third in the 200- and 400-meter dashes, respectively, while Heaton placed third in the long jump.
Chris Whitehead was the top contributor for Holly Pond on the boys’ side, securing second in shot put and third in javelin.
For the Raiders, Luke Taylor placed first for the boys in the shot put, while Kami Calvert was second in the same event for the girls.
