MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – There were no Chattanooga area team champions in the small division of the D-I state track and field meet at MTSU Wednesday, but the Signal Mountain girls finished second and there were three young men from the Chattanooga area who won two events each.

Brainerd’s Joseph Norwood had a great day and won the triple jump with a distance of 44 feet, 1.5 inches after finishing second in the long jump and third in the 400 dash.  And all of that came after he won the decathlon earlier in the week with 6,066 points.

CSAS’ Brevin Sims was victorious in both hurdle events while Signal Mountain’s Jonah Bird won the 1600 and 3200 runs.  Signal Mountain was also first in the 3200 relay.
