CONWAY — The Bryant Hornets went in to the rain-delayed Conway Wampus Cat Relays short handed Friday, but came out with several personal record performances. With the Bryant School District not having classes on Good Friday, several of the Hornets were not able to participate because of previous commitments.
The meet was originally scheduled for Thursday but was postponed because of thunderstorms.
The Hornets scored 23 points in the meet despite missing leading scorer Tanner Tolbert and not fielding either a 3200 or 400 meter relay team.Drew Persinger led the way for the Hornets with a personal record 13-foot clearance in the pole vault, good enough for third place.[more]
"It was unfortunate that the meet had to be postponed, but I was proud of the way the guys competed,” commented head coach Steve Oury. “I told them not to worry about who could not be here for us, but to focus on their own events and go for personal records. Hopefully, we can get the weather to cooperate for the rest of the season."
Other scorers were:
James Glasper – 400m dash (5th place in 53.78)
Kendrick Farr – 200m dash (6th place in 23.58)
Michael Smith – 800m run (7th place in 2:09.8)
Luke Lindsley – 1600m run (7th place in 5:00.12)
Brandon Mueller – 3200m run (7th place in 10:55)
Logan Howard – 3200m run (8th place in 11:08)
