Duncan Track and Field teams qualify for state

DUNCAN — The Class 5A Regional Tournament is now over, but the most important time for the Duncan track teams is about to begin.

Competing at the regional meet in Norman Saturday, the Demons and Lady Demons rose to the occassion, taking a handful of events and advancing to the State Tournament.

The boys team took first with a score of 168 and the girls team finished first with 58 total points.


Consistently winning events in the track and field events, Duncan finished as the top team in the region.

Like it had all season, the boys team dominated the meter run events, taking first in the 800, 1600 and 3200 Meter Runs.

Walker Clampitt and Mason Bivens led the way, gaining the top two spots in each event.

Clampitt won the 800 and 1600 and placed second in the 3200 while Bivens took first in the 3200 event and finished as the runner up in the two other meter events.

After serving as each other’s top competition, Clampitt and Bivens teamed up in the 4X800 Meter Relay, taking first along with teammates Jesse Bachman and Malachi Spann.

The Demons qualified in two one meter relay event, as the team of Hunter Kelly, Dylan Mettler, Jack Braught and Connor Kelly took third in the 4X400 Meter Relay.

Duncan solidified its first place finish with more success in the field events.

Jack Braught was the top regional competitor in the high jump, taking first while Dylan Mettler won the boys pole vault. Jerad Reyes also qualified for state in the pole vault, placing third.

The shot put and discus throw events belonged to Derek McKnight and Kevin Roddy, who like their teammates Clampitt and Bivens, owned the top two spots in their events.

McKnight won the shot put and took second in the discus throw and Roddy finished first in the discus throw and took second in the shot put. When the Demons head to state, McKnight will look to repeat his performance from last year, where he won the state title in the shot put.
