For over 50 years, the Jefferson High School track and field team hosts some of the best competition from around the state in the annual Jefferson Relays.
Last Saturday at Jefferson Memorial Stadium, both the boys’ and girls’ squads  bested the the competition and took first place in the annual event.
The boys scored 130 points, besting second-place finisher Buford by 30 points (100) and third-place finisher Mountain View by 34 points (96). Jackson County finished in 10th place (16).
“To come out and compete like that, I was proud of our kids,” head coach Tim Corbett said.

Rain on Friday and early Saturday morning left the conditions cool and damp for the runners. Corbett said they had to deal with it and he hopes it “helps them prepare for the future” if weather becomes a factor during later meets.
“A lot of my kids, i’d say at least a third of them, I asked them to do three, four, five different things. They’ve got to deal with that. The process gets them better,” Corbett added. “It was good.”
The Dragons took first-place finishes in the 4×1,600 meter relay, high jump (Luke Wells) and discus throw (Donte Wilson). They swept first, second and third place in pole vault (Taylor Jones, Kanye Berryhill and Jared Brown).
They brought home second-place finishes in the 4×800 meter relay and  shot put (Jackson Bowen). The Dragons finished third in the 4×400 meter relay and fourth 1,600-sprint medley.
Jackson County’s Robbie Griffis finished second in the high jump and Todd Woodring  finished sixth in the 100-meter dash. The Panhters’ 4×800 relay team also finished sixth.
The Lady Dragons scored 125.5 points to beat runner-up Buford (82) by 43.5 points. Hart County finished third with 55 points. The Jackson County Lady Panthers finished fifth with 44 points.
