Paladin Squad Competes at Lassiter JV Meet
The varsity track & field squad from Fellowship Christian School competed in the Lassiter High School JV Meet on March 11.
“The team performed really well at Lassiter,” head coach Greg Mayhue said. “We had good weather and the meet progressed with good pace so the athletes weren’t having to stand around and wait for their heats to begin. There were seven teams competing, so it gave our athletes a good mix of competition.”
For the girls, the four by 100 team composed of freshman Amelia Martinez, junior Sabrina Smith, sophomore Brooke Buckner and freshman Brooke Richards set a school record in the event.
Freshman Addy Costoulas placed third in both the shot out and discus. Buckner took third in the triple jump was fifth in the 100-meter hurdles. Richards placed sixth in the long jump, her first time competing in that event.
“The boys also had good performances with some athletes setting personal best,” Mayhue said.
Junior Steve Reed led the charge winning the 110-meter hurdles and placing fourth in the long jump and fifth in the triple jump.
Sophomore Garrett Lengenfeld had top 10 finishes in both the 800-meter and 1600-meter runs. Sophomore Colin Darby had a top 10 finish in the discus, and junior Charlie Patterson finished seventh in the shut put.
Junior Jordan Brewer finished seventh in the 400 meters while making his season debut in that event. Freshman Sawyer Stock set a personal best with setting a new mark in the 800 meters.
Paladins Kick off Track & Field Season
The track & field team from Fellowship Christian School opened the season at the Wildcat Early Bird Meet hosted by 7A Wheeler High School in Marietta on Feb. 26. A total of 14 schools from across several classifications participated in the meet.
“Last night’s meet, although extremely long, slow, windy and cold, produced some good results to get the season started,” head coach Greg Mayhue said. “All-in-all it was a very good start to the season.”
Junior Sami Rickheim won the girls 1,600 meters.
Junior Charlie Patterson finished eighth in the shot put in his first-ever track & field meet, while Nathan Nardone finished 17th in his first meet as well. Sophomore Colin Darby placed 25th among 48 competitors in the shot put. “The event was a solid showing for all of them,” Mayhue said.
Freshman Addy Costoulas placed 10th in the girls discus out of 31 competitors, which was a “solid top 10 finish for her,” Mayhue recalled.
“Both the boys four by 100 teams ran and completed their races, which was great,” Mayhue said. “Both teams were composed of runners that this was either their first time running with their teammates in the event, or their first track meet ever. So, kudos to them for getting it done.”
Freshman Sawyer Stock posted a personal best (PR) in both the 800 meters and 1600 meters, placing 18th out of 50 participants in the 1600. “It was excellent that he set the bar high for the season,” Mayhue said.
