Boles Hornets clear hurdles on way to area track and field title

WOLFE CITY —   A forward somersault in the 300-meter hurdles helped the Boles Hornets take the area track and field team title on Wednesday.

  Boles hurdler Justin Talley appeared to lose his stride heading into the next to last hurdle. Talley braced himself and then did a forward somersault over the hurdle, got back on his feet and still won the race by two seconds with his time of 44.21 seconds.

  Those 10 points scored by Talley figured in the team standings as the Hornets claimed the championship by only six points over Honey Grove (130-124). James Bowie and Maud tied for third with 70, while Cumby was fifth with 62 points and Wolfe City was sixth with 60.

  Talley also won the 110 hurdles in 15.97 ran on Boles’ third-place 4x100-meter relay team and was third in the pole vault, clearing 9 feet.

  Wolfe City picked up victories from Cody Harbin in the triple jump, Ryan Raney in the shot put and Malik Gaffney in the 100-meter dash.

  Cumby’s Dustin Heer won the 200 and his teammate Brandon Jones took the pole vault.

  Grace Campbell won the 800 (2:34.28) and 1600 (5:57.61), plus ran a leg on Cumby’s second-place 4x400 relay team as the Lady Trojans outpointed Detroit 133-110 to claim the girls team titles.

Karli Emmons of Cumby won the 400 (1:03.75) and ran on two second-place relay teams for the Lady Trojans.

  Taylor Gifford of Cumby won the 100 hurdles and pole vault, plus was second in the high jump and ran on the victorious 4x200 relay team.
