The Dade County High School Wolverine track team hosted the Tri-State Run last week. Teams attending were Fannin County, Gilmer County, South Pittsburg, Tenn., and Heritage High School from Catoosa County.
The Tri-State Run is a new tradition that the school is hoping will get traction at DCHS.
“Because of our proximity to Alabama and Tennessee, we are wanting to attract schools from the neighboring states to come be a part,” Coach Steve Green said.
“This was a very competitive meet. I have never seen so many talented pole-vaulters in a single meet outside of a region/state competition.
My hope is hosting meets like this in the mountains will promote the sport for our school. We have a nice facility, several hard-working coaches, and some overlooked athletes at our school,” he added.
In the meet, junior Braylon Sullivan was the Wolverines top male scorer with 22 points and freshman Kiera Hughes was the Wolverines top female scorer with 15 points.
Jace Anderson set a new Wolverine school record in the 400 meter run.
The Wolverine track team was back in action at Pepperell High School on Tuesday, April 18.
