Greenville Lions, Lady Lions trail District 13-4A field


ROYSE CITY —    Both the Greenville Lions and Lady Lions are trailing the field following Tuesday’s first day of the District 13-4A track and field meet.

  The Lady Lions picked up one point with a sixth-place finish from Mackenzie Cooper in the shot put and the Lions claimed a point with Hunter Smith’s sixth in the discus.

  The Lions, who were fifth last year with 55 points, hope to pick up some more points today with their 4x100, 4x200 and 4x400-meter relay teams.

  The Lady Lions do not have any relay teams entered. They were seventh at the 2011 district meet with one point.

  Today’s running finals start at 6 p.m. at the Royse City ISD Stadium with the 4x100 relay.

In a change from previous district meets, the district conducted all five field events on the same day (Tuesday), plus conducted the running preliminaries.

  Cooper claimed sixth in the girls shot put for the second straight year. Last year she threw 31 feet 10 1/2 inches. On Tuesday Cooper threw a personal best 32-6 3/4 on her final attempt after another thrower had passed her for sixth place.

  Cooper’s teammate, Kayla Moore, wound up with eighth with a career-best throw of 32-0.

  Cooper just missed placing in the discus, finishing seventh with a toss that topped 84.

  Smith was sixth in the boys discus with a career-best throw of 127-5.

  Smith was also seventh in the shot put with a heave of 42-5.

  Damion Foster of Royse City won the boys shot put at 51-3 1/2.

  Royse City also went one and two in the boys pole vault. Joseph Beck, who set a new school record by clearing 16-2 last week at the Texas Relays, won the district title at 14-9. Beck missed three attempts at 15-9.

  Chris Doyle of Royse City was second at 14-0.

  Greenville sprinter Elcherri Neal qualified in the girls 100-meter dash with the second-fastest time at 13.26 and also advanced in the 200 with a 27.16.
