ROCKY MOUNT — The Southern Nash boys track and field team had already won the Scott Jones Memorial Classic as presented by The Wilson Times and the 2-A/3-A Big East Conference championship before the Firebirds claimed  a hat trick by winning the Nash County Championship meet Wednesday.

Senior T.J. Taybron scored 26 points by himself in the jumps and was part of the Firebirds’ runner-up 4x400-meter relay team as he claimed the boys Most Valuable Performer honor. Taybron won the long jump with a leap of 21 feet, 6 inches, and was second in the triple jump and high jump.

Jayden Whitaker and Logan Saunders were part of Southern Nash’s victorious 4x800 relay along with D.J. Pridgen and Bryson Rackley. Whitaker then won the 400 dash and Saunders claimed the 800.

Kaden Ricks won the boys 110 hurdles with Kahari Caudle finishing second. The pair then flopped finishes in the 300 hurdles with Caudle winning.

Junior Tralon Mitchell won the 200 dash and was second in the 100 while younger brother Tylik Mitchell, the Scott Jones Memorial MOP, soared 43-0 to win the triple jump.

Southern Nash piled up 128 points to 83 for runner-up Rocky Mount, followed by Northern Nash (65.5) and Nash Central (52.5). Rocky Mount dominated the girls meet with 151 points, followed by Northern Nash (59), Southern Nash (52) and Nash Central (51).

Chasity Hopkins won the shot put and placed second in the discus while Miriam Salazar ran unopposed in winning the 3,200.

Southern Nash will compete in the NCHSAA 3-A East Regional meet Friday, May 13, at Croatan High in Newport.
