PANAMA CITY — Anyone attending the Bay County track and field championship Wednesday should watch for falling records.
The annual meet begins at 1 p.m. at Tommy Oliver Stadium with several Bay girls eyeing new marks. The girls triple jump also is in focus with a two-way battle for a potential record.
Bay’s Na’Kiya Russell and Rutherford’s Cynikeia Bostwick already have surpassed the county record in the triple jump at various meets this season. However, only standards set at the county meet count as records. Bostwick and Russell were Nos. 1 and 2 in the triple jump at the Ram Relays on March 8, also held at Tommy Oliver Stadium.
Bay coach Aaron Byas said Shydria Walker, Nikesia Williams and Deneca Hamilton in the 400, Jasmine Weathers in the 800 and the girls 4x400 relay are aiming at fast times. Bay’s girls are the defending champion.
Rutherford’s boys won last year’s county crown. The Rams are led by Fester Little in the high jump.
Mosley’s Nat Dixon is the favorite in that event. Arnold’s Nick Bergman won the long jump at the Ram Relays.
Track events will begin at 3 p.m.
