Central's Jackson sets two school records in Tigers' win

Saturday, April 29, 2006

The Central girls track and field team continued to dominate the relay events, sweeping all four relays at the Poplar Bluff Invitational on Friday en route to the team title.

The Tigers finished with 206 points, well ahead of Jackson's 170 1/2.

Central recently won five of six relay events at the Cape Relays and earlier this year won all four relays at the Jackson Invitational.

Individually, Nicole Jackson won the 100 and 200, both in school-record times.

Jackson topped Jackson sprinter Rachel Kahle in the 100 with a time of 11.8 seconds, a time which would have topped the Class 4 state champion last year by more than a tenth of a second. Kahle finished in 12.22 seconds.

Jackson won the 200 in 24.7, while Kahle was second in 25.34.

Other winners for Central included Tiffany Mead in the 400, Emma Porter in the pole vault, Brittany Moreland in the 1,600, Brianna Egbuka in the shot put and Dani Gross in the long jump.

For Jackson, Heather Hileman won both hurdle events and the high jump. Kahle won the triple jump, and Katelynn James added a win in the discus.
