Track Southeast Georgia Showcase boasted a loaded field

Featuring 13 girls teams and 12 boys teams, the first Screven County Southeast Georgia Track Showcase fielded some tremendous athletic competition on the evening of March 10 at the SCHS track. 

From all of the competition, the Gamecocks of Kenny Sanders took fourth place, just two points behind AAA Appling County, while the Lady Gamecocks of Roy Cooper took seventh.

SCHS was scheduled to host Bryan County, Jefferson County, and Jenkins County Wednesday after the Sylvania Telephone press deadline with the SCHS teams next meet coming on March 22 at Southeast Bulloch.

AAA New Hampstead took the boys title in impressive fashion with 102 points with a four-team race for second. South Effingham, a AAAAA school, took second with 81, then AAA Appling with 78, SCHS with 76, and AAAAA Effingham County with 72.5. 

It was a big day for SCHS. 

Three impressive first place finishes, including another pair by CJ Wright, helped catapult the Roosters to their lofty finish. 

Wright won the discus with a toss of 152-07.00 feet and the shot with a throw of 52-11 feet. South Effingham’s Jaylen Powell was second in each event, but more than seven feet behind Wright’s mark in each case.

Richmond Whitfield took sixth in the discus, while Bruce Smith took fourth in the shot.

Also grabbing a first place was Tyquan Johnson with a jump of 6-foot-2 in the high jump. Marvin Dallas of Glynn Academy also made the 6-2 but with more misses.

Kim Hunter was fifth in the high jump and third in the long jump.

Armani Bunbury was second in the triple jump (42) and the short relay took third. 

Others gaining points for the Gamecocks were Jatarri Tanksley (5th, 100); Johnson (8th, 100); Anthony Blount (6th, 300 hurdles and 8th, 110 hurdles); and Seaborn Robinson (4th, triple).

The Lady Gamecocks used a number of middle of the pack finishes in their seventh place finish, just four points behind AAA Windsor Forest.

Fifth place Effingham County had more than double Windsor Forest’s points.

Georgia Orphanoudakis’ third place finish in the discus was the high for SCHS. Other points were picked up by Dayshahay Perry (5th, discus); Meliyah Atkins (6th, high jump); Chynna Scott (6th in the 200 and the 300 hurdles); and Kassidee Hutchison (8th, 1600).  The short relay was seventh and the long relay was eighth.
