Eagles record second place finish

The Jenkins County High School boys track team finished second at Burke County High School Relays March 17. BCHS finished first with 169 points.

The Eagles scored 105; Cross Creek, 84; Jeffferson County, 64; Evans, 53; and Johnson County, 7.5.

A standout effort of the day came from Jamar Holmes tying the school record held by Josh Lake (2002) in the 400 meter dash with a time of 49:63.

The Eagles two prior meets were held in Swainsboro and Screven County, with the Eagles finishing second each time.

"The team is working really hard and doing extremely well in all of the running events," said coach Waters "Our field events are getting better with each meet and will continue to do so as the season hits the final stretch."

The Eagles will travel to Thomson High School Thursday, March 29, and then to Southeast Bulloch Saturday, March 31, to end a very busy month of March with the Eagles having competed in eight track meets.

"We want to peak in the month of April and May, and with no injuries, I believe we will hold our own when region comes around," said coach Waters. "We have guys that are committed and Jenkins County should be proud."

Eagle track members are: Justin Foster, Dontavious Young, Coley Clifton, Marquette Warren, Martivious Morris, Kendrick Mobley, Bradley Black, Mason Johnson, Vincent Bynes, A.J. Jenkins, Jamar Holmes, Jake Ports, Ralph Sims, Quentin Williams, Mario Williams, Charles Reynolds, Patrick Moody, Chris Griffin, Boyd Sasser, Bernard Doyle, Brandon Wade, Chordarrol Milton, Anthony Coggins, James Bramblett and Dexter Golphin.
