The weather forecast predicts some wet weather tomorrow morning, but that shouldn't stop some intense battles from happening. Below we've highlighted some of the premier events this meet with have to offer.
Boys 110 Hurdles
Elliot Graves of Reidsville will square off against Cedric McGriff of Providence which should be a great battle over the hurdles. Hopefully both can make it safely through the prelims so they can put on a good show for us in the finals.
Boys 100 Dash
The 4A indoor 60m champ Cravont Charleston (Mallard Creek) will sqaure off against the 3A 60m champ Kadarius Lotharp (Sun Valley) as they both open up their outdoor season. Lotharps teammate Fabrice Funderburke who finished 3rd indoors with also be in the race.
The Weddington duo of Mitchell Resor and Matt Conner are entered in the 800 after some fast relay splits at New Balance indoor last weekend. They'll go against some stiff competition in Isaiah Hanna (Reagan), Coy Brown (East Meck) and Marquise McGee (Vance) which should be a fast race!
Brittney Stanley (Mount Pleasant), Isabel Zimmermann (Reagan) and Lexi King (Marvin Ridge) all have very similar times and are coming off of really strong 1600s from the indoor state meet. Stanley won 1A/2A, King won 3A, and Zimmermann was 3rd in 4A. This should be a great battle amongst these three ladies.
Stanley and Zimmermann will be doubling back from the 1600 and will go against some strong competition in the 800. Jena Metwalli (Cannon School) has run 2:14 last year and will be ready to kick off her final outdoor season. Sun Valley freshman Adrienne Ellison has run 2:17 already this season as well, so we should be in for a fast race.
Khayla Dawson is entered in both the girls Shot Put and will have her season debut in the Discus throw. She is a heavy favorite to take both events, but shes is always a fun person to watch throw!
Girls High Jump
The girls high jump will be an extremely close contest. The top six girls are all entered within 2 inches of each other and no one should be considered a heavy favorite to win this event.
