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.

The Lady Eagles didn’t win a single event, but Briley Lowry was second in the long jump and the 3200 relay team was second in 10:28.76 as Signal Mountain finished the day with 89 points behind first-place East Nashville, which scored 155.

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.

The Signal Mountain boys scored 46 points to finish fourth behind Pearl Cohn’s winning total of 103.  Brainerd was seventh with 34 while CSAS was 13th with 20.

Tyner’s Nicole Johnson won the 100 dash in 12.13 seconds and was second in the 200 while Alayah Dozier of CSAS won the 400 in 57.28 seconds after taking second in the 100 and third in the 200.
