Duncan track teams impress at Deer Creek

DUNCAN — With every next meet they compete in, the Duncan track teams continue to impress.

The Demons and Lady Demons turned in another impressive performance last weekend at the Deer Creek Edmond Meet, with the boys placing third out of fourteen teams and the girls taking ninth out of thirteen teams.

Junior Walker Clampitt couldn’t be beaten, taking first in the 800 Meter and 1600 Meter runs while leading the Demons to a first place finish in the 4X800 Meter Relay race.

Clampitt’s teammate in the relay Mason Bivens also made his presence felt all day, seizing second place in the 3200 Meter Run and placing third in the 1600 Meter Run.

The Demons success in relays translated over to the Boys 4X400 Meter Relay, with the team of Connor Kelly, Jesse Bachman, Hunter Kelly and Nathan Clark taking fifth.

Duncan performed especially well in the  boys shotput, with senior Derek McKnight finishing first with a distance of 55 feet and two inches and junior teammate Kevin Roddy taking second with a distance of 53 feet and three inches.

The pair continued its dominance in the discus throw, with Roddy taking first with a distance of 155 feet and McKinght placing third at 139 feet and three inches.

For Duncan, the girls shotput included the same script. Alexa Goldsberry took home the title, reaching a distance of 113 feet and nine inches.

Finishing only behind two competitors from tournament host Deer Creek, Duncan’s Dylan Mettler took third in the boys pole vault with a height of 13 feet and six inches.

Shawn Moore and Jack Braught helped Duncan make its mark in the high jump, tying for fourth with a height of five feet and ten inches.

Amberleigh Rushin kept the Demons’ success going in the category, finishing third in the girls high jump at a height of four feet and 10 inches.

The overall title went to Edmond Memorial, which took first place in the boys and girls competitions as a team.
