2nd place, it might sound like a position that lacks the success that most would strive for, but on a day like today, it might have been something that was just as impressive as 1st. All day Pulaski County was great at 2nd place. They took 2nd in the day’s first event, the 3200 meter relay, even though they beat the previous meet record in the event (Meade County was 1st in an even better new meet record of 9:00.03). Austin Hyden was 2nd in the high jump, clearing 5-08 behind Marshall County’s Cody Gregory, who cleared 5-10 and took several good attempts at 5-11. Bailey McEnroe was 2nd in the shot put with a throw of 42-07.50 behind Daviess County’s Chris Johnson and his 45-00.75 toss, as well as in the Turbojav where his throw of 110-09 was runner-up to Cain Cooper of Henderson County North’s throw of 117-11. Don’t forget about Jimmy Goldson either, as his runner-up mark of 4:46.79 was less than a second behind that of Muhlenburg County’s Chase Geary’s time of 4:46.27, but none of these guys had enough to get the win. Until they released the final team scores, and then the squad finally had their first win of the day, a three-point victory over an incredibly strong sprint performance by Lexington Traditional Magnet School 57-54. It was a great end to a great day for the Pulaski group, who also got strong performances out of Mason Blevins, 3rd in the 3200 meters in 10:32.66, Caleb Cox, who scored in both the pole vault and triple jump, as well as the team’s 4x400 meter relay, whose 5th place finish sealed the deal as they had entered that event with a slim 1-point advantage before finishing two spots in front of LTMS.
