Jaguars win Ken Hogan Invite

MOORE — The Westmoore boys ran away with the team title Friday at the Ken Hogan Invitational Track Meet. It racked up 153 points, which was 10.5 more than second place Moore, which had 142.50.

“We had some really strong relay performances and a lot of our kids scored in individual events that are just getting started as far as practices since basketball season,” Westmoore coach Laura Clay said. “I really feel like our kids are working hard and its starting to pay off for them.”

Duncan (82), Norman (70) and Southmoore (43) rounded out the top-5.

Calvin Miller, DeAndre Martin, A.J. Oliver and Cassius Hill had a solid outing for the Jags. The Jaguars were particularly strong in the relays. The unit of Oliver, Martin Deandre, Kiante Powell and Quinton Powell held off the Lions in the 4x100 meter relay to take first with a time of 42.95. MHS was right behind at 43.33.

Westmoore also took first in the 4x200 and 4x800 relays. It also finished two seconds behind the Lions in the in the 4.x400 to take second.

“We wanted to come out and protect our home track,” Powell said. “Just make a name for ourselves in the state. I think we can win state.”

The Lions had a solid day from junior Clarence Simpkins. He took first in the 300 hurdles and was second in the 110.

However, Simpkins was not happy with his performance.

“It wasn’t my best race,” Simpkins said. “It’s just something you feel. I was of balance a couple of times. Still got that win, but I’m not worried about the win right now. This isn’t a giant meet. I need to focus and competition. Running against slower competition is going to get me better.”

Simpkins goal this season is to medal at state in the 110 hurdles and cut his time down to 14.8. His career best now is 15.4.
