The North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) 1A/2A Indoor Track Championships Saturday at JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem saw some outstanding performances by local competitors.
Last February, in the 2019 event, Jason Thomson from North Lincoln set a new record in the 1600 meter run as he crossed in 4:21.11. He wasn't quite as swift this year, finishing with a time of 4:24.85, but that was still good enough for first place. Daniel Hopkins of Lincolnton finished second with a time of 4:27.57. Thomson finished third in the boys 1000 meter.
Just like last year, Angie Allen of North Lincoln won the girls 1600 meter with a time of 5:12.96. Karina Coulter of Fred T. Foard finished 7th and Alyssa Galvin of North 8th. Allen also won the girls 3200 meter run with a time of 11:27.23, and finished second in the girls 1000 meter behind Lauren Tolbert of Highland Tech.
The North Lincoln quartet of Kelbi Pierce, Lori Glaven, Alyssa Galvin & Angie Allen won the girls 4x800 relay.
In the girls 55 meter dash, Kayla Smith of Lincolnton finished first with a time of 7.03, a new record for the meet. She bested the previous classification record of 7.17 seconds set by Allysia Farrar from Cummings last year.
Just like did in 2019, Jake Soorus of North Lincoln won the boys shot put competition, this time with a throw of 55’6.5”, besting the previous record of 54’9” set by Magnus Herweyer from Carrboro in 2016.
