ROCKY MOUNT — Behind Jalen McCalston’s three first-place showings, the Southern Nash High boys track team legged out county supremacy at the 2021 Nash County Championship, contested on the Rocky Mount High campus.

McCalston swept both hurdle events, placing first in the 110-meter and 300 hurdles to go along with a first-place effort in the triple jump.

Host Rocky Mount finished second, with Nash Central and Northern Nash rounding out the field in third and fourth, respectively.

In addition to Darin Bailey’s victory in the 800, Southern Nash relay teams enjoyed extended success with first-place results in the 4x100, 4x400 and 4x800 relays.

Zyon Nicholson, Thomas Copeland, Zyshone Pearce and Xavien Smith captured the 4x100, with Sean Johnson, Lelyn Herndon, Kahari Caudel and T.J. Taybron finishing first in the 4x400. In the 4x800, Kelvin Hill, Tanner Baker, Bailey and Logan Saunders were the first quartet across the line.

Chasity Hopkins was the only winner for Southern Nash in the girls proceedings, finishing first in the shot put with her throw of 32 feet.

Southern Nash returns to action Wednesday in a 3-A Big East Conference tri-meet back at Rocky Mount.
