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.

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.
