Demons strong in last meet before regionals

DUNCAN — Duncan’s track athletes had some good showings at their final meet before regionals.

The Demons hosted a 10-team meet Thursday and eight different athletes won individual events, as did one relay. Demon coach Todd Ledford said it was a good way to close the regular season. He believes the Demons can do good things at regionals and state. The regional meet will be May 10 at Putnam City High School in Warr Acres, and the state meet is May 17 at Yukon High School.

“They’re competing well and running hard,” he said. “That’s what we are looking for. We had some kids with good times today.

“We’ve got the potential in nine or 10 events to place high at the state meet.”

The boys 3200-meter relay team won with a time of 8:42.66. Walker Clampitt, A.J. Stewart, Malachi Spann and Jesse Bachman. Todd Ledford likes what he sees from those athletes. Clampitt added a first-place finish in the 800 (2:02.77).

Kevin Roddy continued his dominance, winning the shot put (56’7”) and discus (160’2.5”). He has won those events at every meet he has competed at this season.

Mason Bivens won the 1600-meter run (4:24.42) and 3200-meter run, Jerad Reyes won the pole vault (13’9”) and Connor Kelly won the 300-meter hurdles (41.56).

On the girls side, first-place finishes came from Rebecca Brewer in the 300-meter hurdles (45.83), Mattie Bivens in the 3200 (12:51.32) and Karlie Montgomery in the pole vault (9’6”).

The Demons placed many athletes in the top six. Ledford praised Austin Jones, who had one of his best marks in the boys pole vault. He took second at 11’6”.

“He cleared some bars today,” Ledford said.

Clampitt finished second in the boys 1600 (4:46.69) as did Brewer in the 100 hurdles (17.22) and the 100-meter dash (12.87) and Adrienne Gibson in the girls pole vault (7’6”).

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
