Daniel track and field sweeps titles at region meet

SENECA — Both the boys’ and girls’ track and field squads from Daniel High School captured region championships by winning their respective meets at the Western AAA championships held at Seneca High School on Wednesday and Thursday.

Both of the squads from the home-standing Bobcats finished behind Daniel in second place, while both West-Oak squads finished in sixth place.

A number of area competitors also captured individual region championships, but no one had more individual success that Daniel’s Nish Dotson.

On Thursday, Dotson, an All-State performer for the Lions on the hardwood, captured titles in both the 100-meter and 400-meter hurdles after capturing the title in the triple jump on Wednesday.

Also out of Daniel, Courtney Pryor captured a region crown in the 100 and Sinead Haughey won the 3200, while the Lions also won the 4×800 relay.

Seneca had a pair of runners win titles, as Kendra Holland won both the 200 and 400, while Tameka Jackson captured wins in the 800 and 1600.

The Bobcats also captured titles in the 4×100 and 4×400 relays.

Seneca had two region championships on the opening day of competition, as Chelsea Taylor won the pole vault. The Bobcats’ other region champion from Wednesday was Katrina Gambrell, who captured the title in the long jump.

On the boys’ side, Thursday was relatively quiet for the area competitors outside of Seneca’s Austin Hunter capturing titles in both the 200 and 400.

The only other area note of interest from the second day of competition was the Daniel 4×100 relay squad capturing a title.

But on Wednesday, Daniel’s C.J. Davidson captured titles in both the long jump and triple jump, narrowly beating out Lions teammate Freddie Williams in both events.

Also out of Daniel, Chris Turner won the high jump, while Duvon Young won the shot put by more than six feet. The Lions’ 4×800 relay team also came up with a region championship on the opening day of competition.

The only region title for the Seneca boys on Wednesday came in the pole vault as Perry Rogers won the event by clearing the bar at 13 feet. He was followed closely by Seneca teammates, and brothers, John and Adam Doud, who finished in second and third place, respectively.
