FHS track-field teams top-3 at WB meet;Gilmartin, Gibson, Wigren, girls duo tops


Tom Gilmartin’s double wins in the 1600- and 3200-meter runs paced the Farragut High School track and field boys team to a second-place finish during an eight-team meet at William Blount High School April 10.

Adam Wigren, champion in the shot put, and Jacob Gibson, first-place in the 800-run, helped lead the FHS effort.

“Overall, as a team, we were very happy to see that we had the depth that we needed, we were scoring the seconds, thirds and fourths,” FHS head coach Chelsea Jacobs said. “We’ve had a lot of improvement from the first William Blount meet (WBHS Invitational) to the second William Blount meet.”

Meanwhile, the FHS girls finished third behind first-place efforts from Alyssa Dresen (1600) and Jessica Morgan (pole vault).

As for Dresen, “It was an outstanding performance,” Jacobs said.

Other second-place efforts from FHS boys came from Jeremy Walker in the pole vault, Chris Wright in the 1600, Bryan Mann in the 400 and Thomas Fraser in the 800.

Farragut participated in the annual Paine-Webber Relays at Oak Ridge (originally scheduled for Saturday, April 14, bad weather pushed it back to Monday, April 16 — after press deadline).

Both FHS teams hosted archrival Bearden for a dual meet at Farragut’s Bill Clabo Field April 17 (after press deadline).
