Mason Co. girls and boys team finish 2nd in state indoor track and field meets; Garrison and Stanley are state champions

The Mason County girls and boys teams both finished second in the KTCCCA state indoor track and field meets Saturday at the Carmeuse Complex.

Rockcastle County won the girls Class AA meet with 116 points. The Mason County Lady Royals had 93 points.

Waggener is the boys Class AA champion with 107 points. The Mason County Royals, the state champions the past two years, had 82 points.

Fleming County took seventh place in both the girls and boys Class AA meets.

It's the second straight year the Mason County girls have been the state runner-up. In the past four years the Mason County boys have finished 2nd, 1st, 1st and 2nd.

In an email message, Mason County coach Mark Kachler said "Very solid 4 year run for the guys. I am very proud of all their efforts."

Mason County senior Brendon Garrison is the state champion in the 55 meter hurdles (8.66) and the triple jump (40-10.50) and is the runner-up in the long jump (19-03.00).

Mason County senior Jay Stanley is the state champion in the shot put (46-11). He was the state champion in the shot put in the outdoor meet last year.

Several other Mason County athletes had runner-up finishes:
  • Rheagan Sizmore in the girls 1600 meter run (5.58.33) and the girls pole vault (8-00.00)
  • Hayden Faris in the girls 3000 meter run 12:39.98)
  • Isaiah Riggs in the boys 3000 meter run (10:58.20)
  • Marissa Scilley in the girls long jump (15-02.25) and the girls triple jump (32.02.50)
  • Jordan Frodge in the girls high jump (4-10.00)
  • Jesse Morgan, Bryce Johnson, Zach Walters and Seth Bickley in the boys 4x400 meter relay (4:00.00)
Fleming County's Kaleb Flannery was the runner-up in the boys high jump (5-08-00.)

(Edited to correct that Stanley was the outdoor state champion in the shot put last season, not a back-to-back state champion in the indoor meet)
