Crisp, Dooly sending entries to state track meet

Jefferson/Albany — When state track meet competition gets under way here Thursday for boys and in Albany on May 9 for girls, Crisp and Dooly counties will have representatives in the field.

During their sectionals this past Saturday in Statesboro, Crisp’s Cougars qualified one boy and one girl. They were Adarius King, who placed fifth in the 200-meter dash at 22.22 and Deja Chambliss who had the same finish in the 880-meter run with a clocking of 2:25.

King will qualify on Friday and if he makes the top four in his heat will return on Saturday to run in the finals. Chambliss will face the same scenario next week.

“Both Adarius and Deja turned in their personal bests and represented our school extremely well,” Crisp coach Chad Averett said. “I couldn’t be more proud of these two Cougar athletes.”

Dooly’s Bobcats, meanwhile, held their sectionals at Landmark Christian in Fairburn where they did well enough to be sending eight boys to state. It will have no entries in next week’s girls state track week, however.

Representing the Bobcats will be Montravius Adams in the shot put, Izavious Hawkins in the pole vault, DeMarcus Lloyd and Devion Mathis in the 110-meter high hurdles.

Also, Radius Adams in the 800- and 1600-meter runs, Lloyd in the 300-meter intermediate hurdles and the 4X100-meter relay team of Kereon Merrell, Chanin Hamilton, Jametavious Daniels and DeMarquis Clark. Lloyd and Mathis are alternates on that unit.

Montravius Adams, Radius Adams and Hawkins have their finals on Thursday while Dooly’s other entries will participate in their finals on Saturday.

“I thought our boys represented themselves and our school well at the sectionals and I’m hoping for even bigger and better things from them at state where we’ll be seeing the same people we faced here,” said Bobcats coach Minnie Harper who’s assisted by David Barron and Edna Harper.

“What makes this year’s performance especially sweet, too, is that after not having a single boy or girl qualify for state last year I really think we can place pretty high this season.”

Wilcox High had no boys or girls qualify for state.
