Several Bears Advance to Sectionals With Strong District Performances

The William Chrisman track and field team saw several of its athletes qualify for Sectionals with strong performances at the Class 5 District 7 meet on Saturday.

Five individuals and one relay will not be competing at the Class 5 Sectional 4 meet this upcoming Saturday after finishing in the top four at Districts. A handful of Bears just missed qualifying as well with fifth place finishes.

Sophomore Camryn Holloman had a huge day at Districts, hosted by Chrisman, as she advanced in three events. She won the triple jump, finished fourth in the long jump, and was a key part of the 4x400m relay (Meraid Jorgensen, Paris Anderson, Holloman, Adreal Bell) that also took fourth.

Junior Daniel Carson took first in the shot put to move on.

Senior James Bailey, defending State Champion in the discus and Medalist in the shot put, finish second and fourth in the events, respectively to advance.

Junior Seila Tali took second in the javelin to round out the Bears’ Sectional qualifiers.

Senior Chris Bunce ran a PR of 4:33 in the mile and finished fifth. His time would have finished second in District 8. He took off 30 seconds from his time last year and almost two minutes from two years ago.

Junior Davionna Lagrone finished fifth in the javelin with a PR and both the boys 4x800m relay (Caleb Michell, Aaron Nyaway, Jared Stevenson, Braxton Ward) and girls 4x800m (Bell, Lilly Conner-Urnise, Evelyn Boughan, Gabi Chavez) also took fifth.
