WINSTON-SALEM – Aidan McNally led the Cuthbertson boys track and field team by winning a state title in the 300 and helping the Cavs to a pair of relay titles, but Weddington claimed their third straight title Feb. 14 at the JDL FastTrack.
McNally was fantastic as he set the school record in the 300 and was the anchor of the 4×200 and 4×400 relays.
In addition, Christian Phelps took third in the triple jump and was fourth in the long jump; Jacob Koerner placed third in the 300; and Justin Sluiter placed third in the high jump.
The 4×200 (McNally, Koerner, Zachary Ross and Ari Richards) and 4×400 (Ross, McNally, Ryan Kobziak and Koerner) relays were both state champs.
Weddington, however, was too strong.
The Warriors got individual state titles from Alec Mock in the shot put, Nick Callis in the pole vault and Jake Tomey, who took gold in both the 1,600 the 1,000.
Peter Dejonge placed second in the 500; Kam Tuttle was second in the long jump; Wesley Larson finished third in the 1,600; and Chase Barajas placed third in the 1,000.
The Weddington boys were also second in the 4×800 (Michael Paxton, Joseph Lowther, Krystopher Durham and Toomey).
Marvin Ridge’s Ethan Basinger finished third in the pole vault, Quinn Cokley placed fourth in the high jump and the Mavs were third in the 4×800 relay (Jackson Colling, Cole Jackson, Jeffrey Thompson and Gunner Hogston).
Parkwood’s Marcus Hesske placed second in the pole vault.
Sun Valley’s Zachary Moore won the 55 wheelchair and took second in the wheelchair shot put.
Weddington won the race with 95.5 points followed by Cuthbertson (61, second), Marvin Ridge (39, fourth), Sun Valley (14, 12th); Parkwood (8, T-22nd) and Piedmon (8, T-22nd).
