Farragut boys claim 4 X 800; FHS girls win 4 X 400, pole vault


While both Farragut track teams finished third at the annual KIL meet Wednesday, April 19, at Knoxville Catholic High School, both pulled off relay victories.

Tiffany Whitney brought her 4 X 400 girls from behind on the third leg to give the Lady Ads a comfortable cushion for Catelyn Dake’s winning anchor run. “I knew I had it in me,” Whitney said, as FHS finished at 4:09.86.

“She ran a great leg,” FHS head coach Scott McKenzie said. “When I looked around [Webb] was ahead ten, fifteen yards. ... “Dake and Brittany Simmons are both doing a good job.”

Those three led the way in the Lady Ads winning the 4 X 400, along with Caroline Sneed.

The 4 x 800 boys foursome — Nathan Cameron, Thomas Fraser, Jacob Gibson and Byran Mann — won with a time of 8:12.89.

“The little Dresen girl [Alyssa], I’m awfully pleased with her,” McKenzie said. as Dresen took second in the 800.

In praising Kathleen Jarvis’ winning pole vault of 7-foot-06, “she’s got a good frame for the vault,” McKenzie said.

Dake was second in the 400, while Farragut’s 4 X 100 (Hannah Cook, Dake, Chelsey Lindsey and Simmons) and 4 X 800 (Sarah Brinson, Dresen, Caroline Hemeter and Caroline Sneed) each took second.

“Caroline Sneed, she’s starting to get her times down pretty good,” McKenzie said.

Jacob Gibson was second in the 800.
