Cavaliers defend their home track

Apr. 06, 2014 @ 05:01 AM

Southern Lee's boys' track team scored victories of all types on its home track Thursday afternoon. The Cavs won throwing, long-distance, sprint, jumping, hurdle and relay events to come out on top of a tri-meet with conference foes Gray's Creek and Westover.

The Cavaliers prevailed with 79 points to runner-up Gray's Creek with 55. Gray's Creek won the girls meet, edging Westover 62-60.

Sophomore Larry McLeod was the lone Southern Lee athlete to win two events, soaring to the long jump and high jump victories. McLeod posted 19-feet-3 in the long jump to edge teammates Damian Brown and Kendrick Davis, who finished second and third, and cleared 6-feet-2 to win the high jump by six inches.

The Cavalier 4x100 relay team won in a time of 44.90 seconds, breaking up what otherwise was Westover dominance of the relays as the Wolverines and Lady Wolverines won six of the eight relays on the day.

Cavalier individual victors also included Garrett Wilson in the discus (121-11), Justin McKinnon in the shot put (39-9), Biagio Esposito in the 1,600 (5:14), Aaron Blockmon in the 100 (11.27), Kendrick Davis in the 200 (22.68) and Cameron Locust in the 300 hurdles (45.26).

Lady Cavalier event winners were Jessica Long in the 800 (2:48), Bailey Lawrence in the 100 hurdles (20.00), Jalicia Addington in the 100 (12.53) and Tiara Bland in the discus (98-11).

Southern Lee, Lee County and Gray's Creek will travel to Union Pines for the next meet of the CFVC season Thursday afternoon. First-place results are great anytime. The main goal is building toward conference, regional and state championship meets, though. The track and field postseason is slated to start, for the seven CFVC schools, with the conference championships at Fayetteville's Reid Ross Classical School April 29-30.
