Eagles split with UC

Youngsville’s track and field teams opened the 2018 season by earning a split with visiting Union City Thursday.

The boys came away with a 93-47 win, while the girls dropped a tough 75-65 decision.

“The coaching staff is very proud of the efforts of these athletes today,” Youngsville coach Michelle Johnson said. “Our teams did outstanding considering today was the first day they performed on our track . Our hurdlers have been restricted to going overtop a couple of hurdles in the hallways, jumpers have been stuck doing drills in the wrestling room and the sprinters have been running in the halls.”

Several Eagles took advantage of their first time on the track as Aaron Morris (110 hurdles), Jake Hogg (high jump), Jordan Keyes (javelin) and Naomi Swartzbaugh (300 hurdles) all qualified for the District 10 meet.

Morris also picked up an individual win in the 300 hurdles, while Keyes swept all three throwing events. Noah Myers won the 100 and 200 and was part of the winning 4×100 relay team. Hogg also won the triple jump while Ethan Bendict took first in the long jump.

Swartzbaugh won both hurdles and was part of the winning 4×100 relay. The girls also got individual wins from Linsey Jukes (100, 200), Rebekkah Hogg (shot put), Kayla Hecei (discus) and Alyssa Molek (javelin).

“I can’t wait to see what the season brings with this group of kids. We’ve got four athletes qualified for District’s and I anticipate this number to triple before the season is over,” Johnson said.
