This past Friday and Saturday marked the Eastern Indoors Championship, held at Norton Healthcare Sports and Learning Center, where Manual’s track team put on an impressive showing. 

With over 100 teams, clubs and organizations competing in the Eastern Indoors from 18 states, including Kentucky, the competition and field was endless. Events ranged from the 60-meter dash to the 800-meter run to the two-mile run to relays, hurdles, pole vault, long jump and shot put. The majority of Manual’s track and field team participated in the 60-meter dash and 800-meter run, with a lot of the Crimsons setting personal records for their specific event.

Some of the Crimsons placed high in these events. 

In terms of the girls’, Lincoln Morgan (12, HSU) placed first place overall with a time of 8.40 seconds in the girls’ 60-meter Local Open, while Kennedy Miles (10, J&C) also placed fourth in the same event with a time of 8.46 seconds. 

Madison Price (9, HSU) also placed first in the girls’ 800-meter Local Open with a time of 2:28:68. Price also placed fourth in the one-mile freshmen girls’ run. Flora Biro (12, VA) then placed second in the girls’ two-mile run. Zoey Shahid-Scott (12, HSU) also placed fourth in the girls’ shot put, throwing the ball 34 feet, nine inches. 

In terms of the boys’, three runners placed in the top ten or higher in the boys’ 60-meter Local Open, including Amaris Johnson (10, HSU), who placed tenth, Cory Fitch (9, HSU), who placed fifth and Quincy White (11, HSU), who placed third. 

Brady Jenkins (11, MST), who participated in the boys’ 800-meter Local Open placed second overall, with a time of 2:07:59. Romaro Knight (12, HSU) also ended up placing third in the boys’ 60-meter hurdles, with a time of 8.32 seconds. 

Overall, participating in almost every event for both boys and girls’ competition, the Crimsons held off some of the competition, while taking down some competition at the same time, too. 

Manual will compete again this weekend in the KTCCCA President’s Weekend Invitational, held at Norton. The time is to be determined.
