First Time In School History
Edmonson Voice Sports:
For the first time in school history, Edmonson County Middle School Track had representation at the Middle School State Track Meet, which was held in Louisville on May 27th.
Aidan Meredith competed in the one-mile run, Haley Shields competed in the shot put and discus, and Jasper Young, Jack Browning, Aidan Meredith, and Zander Garrett competed in the 4 x 800 relay.
“It is extremely hard to qualify for the middle school state track meet,” said Coach Brad Meredith. “There are qualifying standards that must be met; the middle school state is all schools combined. It's not split up into three classes like our High School is. We have never had any athletes meet the standards. They are very hard to obtain and many of these kids will also compete in the High School State meet. This is a great honor for these kids and I am very proud of them.”
Haley Shields threw 31-5.00 in the girls shot put and also threw 82-3.00 in the discus, Aidan Meredith ran 5:15 for the boys mile, and the boys 4 x 800 relay team of Aidan Meredith, Jack Browning, Zander Garrett, and Jasper Young ran a time of 9:55.00.
