Jackson flashes ‘speed’ in Zebra Invitational

CLAREMORE — Three track meets into the 2013 season and Claremore junior sprinter Tyler Jackson is on a ‘record-setting’ pace en route to the Class 5A State Meet in May.

Jackson, who garnered four first-place finishes Thursday afternoon in the Zebra Invitational, helped spark the Zebras to a top overall finish with 141.50 total points.

The talented speedster raised eyebrows in the 100-meter dash with a first-place finish after clocking a hand time of 10.26 seconds.

Yukon’s A.J. West came in second in the 100 with a 10.45, while Booker T. Washington’s Arlando Johnson was third with a 10.51.

Then, in the 200-meter dash, Jackson continued his stellar outing with a first-place finish on a time of 21.32. Once again, Jackson beat West, who finished with a 21.89.

In the 400-meters, Jackson breezed past the competition, clocking a 49.48 for his third medal of the meet. Sand Springs’ Jermaine McClain placed second with a 52.01.

Claremore’s Ryan Davis also finished fifth in the 400 with a 54.65.

Jackson’s final event — anchoring the 1,600-meter relay — led to another first-place victory for the Zebras.

Claremore clocked a 3:27.36 in the 1,600-meter relay to beat Booker T. Washington, who ran a 3:28.99.

Oologah’s Tristan Owens collected first place honors in the 3,200-meter run with a time of 9:59.41. Claremore Sequoyah’s Guess Leonard was fifth with a 10:35.90.

Claremore’s Anthony Wolfe took home first place in the 110-meter and 300-meter hurdles with times of 14.96 and 41.68, respectively.

Claremore’s Nathan Hammack also finished third in the 110-meter hurdles with a 15.95.

Claremore’s 400-meter relay placed fourth with a 45.78, while the Zebras finished third in the 800-meter relay with a 1:35.13.

Claremore’s 3,200-meter relay team came in fourth place with a 8:47.49.

In the high jump, Claremore sophomore Reid Joyner was first with a leap of 6-foot, 2 inches; while junior Hunter Garroutte was second at 6 foot. Claremore freshman Hutch Helbig tied for third with a jump of 5 feet, 10 inches.

Claremore’s Matt Outlaw finished fourth in the pole vault at 10 feet, 6 inches.

Claremore’s Hammack collected third place honors in the long jump at 19-6.5, while Oologah’s Breydan DeSpain was fourth (19.0) and Sequoyah’s Daniel Moniz was fifth (19.4).

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
