CHECOTAH - The Henryetta High School track and field program earned ninth-place finishes at the Class 3A regional meet last Saturday at Ogle Field, on the campus of Checotah High School.

The Lady Knights finished tied for ninth with Valliant with 17 points each, while the Knights were ninth in the boys team standings with 20 team points, edging out Hartshorne by one point.

Tahlequah Sequoyah swept the team regional championships at the meet, followed by Holland Hall, Idabel, and Washington in the final three spots, respectively, in the team standings. Spiro was fifth in the girls team standings, while fifth place in the boys team standings went to Wilburton.

Hugo finished ahead of Henryetta in the girls team standings, while Heavener finished just ahead of Henryetta in the boys team standings.

Individually, the Henryetta track program qualified three athletes for this weekend's Class 3A state track championships in Moore - all three in the pole vault.

Brittany Elam was the lone individual qualifier for the Lady Knights, finishing runner-up at the regional meet.

The duo of Ryston Caron and Dalton Key were second and third, respectively, in the boys pole vault at the regional meet, earning the Knight athletes a spot at the state track meet this Friday and Saturday at Moore High School.

Bailee Worlow will join Elam, Caron, and Key as a state track meet representative for HHS, being named as one of the four additional qualifiers in both the 400 meter dash and 800 meter run. Worlow finished fourth in both events, but had one of the Top 4 times of the 4th-7th place finishers of all four regional meets to punch her ticket to this weekend's state track meet.

Teammates Kenna Najera and Skyla Notley just missed earning a trip to the state track meet as additional qualifiers, finishing sixth and seventh, respectively, in the discus. Najera missed being an additional qualifier by less than three feet, while Notley was more than six feet shy of adding her name to the state track meet list.

On the boys side, Austin Green finished seventh in the 800 meter run, missing an additional qualifier spot by a little more than eight seconds. Green also finished eighth in the 400 meter dash.

Also placing in the 400 meter dash for the Knights at the regional meet were Isaac Matlock in 10th and Riley Floyd in 15th.

Sam Crown was 17th in the 3200 meter run, while Cameron Slyconish rounded out the individual placers for the Knights with a 19th-place finish in the shot put.

Besides Worlow's fourth-place finish in the 800 meter run, Cheyanne Thomas was 12th for the Lady Knights in the event.

Cailey Rempe competed in both the 100 and 200 meter dashes, while Megan Counts and Brittani Hembree joined Rempe in the 100 meter dash at the regional meet.

The Lady Knight 400 meter relay team finished eighth at the regional meet, while the Knight relay teams earned sixth-place finishes in the 800, 1600, and 3200 meter relays and was seventh in the 400 meter relay at the regional meet.
