The Sequoyah girls track and field team finished Day 1 of the Class AAAAAA state championships in Carrollton with an eighth-place standing.

Led by Keira Hight’s runner-up performance of 11 feet, 3 inches in Thursday’s pole vault, the Lady Chiefs have fared well so far.

Sequoyah’s 4x800-meter team reached the podium as Ella Grace Cothren, Stella Waites, Morgan Landry and Susanna Rogers were fifth a time of 10 minutes, 12.83 seconds, just 1 second behind fourth-place Allatoona.

The Lady Chiefs, who accrued 12 points across the first day of competition, were also helped significantly by Callie Bacon, who took 10th in the long jump, and Mya McRae, who finished top-14 in both the long jump and 100 dash.

River Ridge ranked 10th overall with nine points.

The 4x800 relay was a bright spot for River Ridge, with Cayden Crismon, Alyssa Roberts, Kelly Miles and Caitlin Johnson taking third overall at 10:09.95.

Joy Tchamabe was River Ridge’s other scorer, finishing sixth in the shot put. She hit the 35-8 mark on her sixth and final attempt.

Creekview was the only boys team to break into the standings on Day 1. The Grizzlies were in 21st place, following Grayson Venezia’s 13-0 mark in the pole vault.
