The Anderson County High School boys' track team finished third in the Danville All-Comers' meet held last Tuesday at Admiral Stadium in Danville. Anderson placed well despite not running some of the Bearcats' top performers in some events as coach Travis Gay elected to give some younger team members the opportunity to compete.
High jumper Jordan Sloan continued to show why he is ranked as one of Kentucky's best with a victory. Sloan cleared the bar at 6-feet. Discus thrower and shot putter John Updike was also impressive, placing second in both events.
The Anderson 4-by-400 meter boys' relay team, consisting of Cody Dixon, Matt Calvert, Sloan and Devin Davenport, turned in a strong 3:42.4 to win that event, while hurdler Thomas Fint claimed first in the 110-meters.
The Anderson girls placed fifth in the 10-team meet with hurdler Sabrina Shelton claiming first in the 100-meters, covering the distance in 17.7 seconds. The Lady Bearcat 4-by-800 meter relay teamplaced second with Evie Sprague, Kristin Moninger, Madison Carter and Katie Gustafson combining to turn in an 11:13 time.
Anderson's entry in the Heart of the Bluegrass meet at Harrodsburg Saturday was canceled. The Bearcats returns to action Friday in the Marion County Invitational at Marion County High School.
