Local athletes qualify for track & field sectional3:23 am | May 8, 2013
GREENEVILLE—The Elizabethton track and field team had to overcome some bad luck, and some adversity on Tuesday at the subsectional meet at Greeneville High School.
The first-place wins that were happening with frequency in the conference meet were becoming second and thirds, but in this meet that was good enough to move on to the sectional.
Individually, Ethan Thomas qualified in three events — the long jump, 100 and 200 — and Katie May qualified in the 100 hurdles and triple jump with second-place finishes.
The Lady Cyclones also had qualifications from Autumn Thomas in the 100 dash, Abbi Pierce in the 1,600, Emily Schubert in the discus as well as the the 4×200, 4×400 and 4×800 relays, winning the 200 and 400.
