LEXINGTON — A pair of local seniors went out with medal performances in multiple events in the final meet of their career in Friday’s KHSAA Class 2A State Track and Field Championships at the University of Kentucky.
Bardstown senior Dallan Goldring medaled in three events — including a runner-up finish in the triple jump — to score 13 of the Tigers’ 30 total points in an eighth-place finish in the school’s first year after moving up from Class 1A.
Nelson County’s Brianna Harman enjoyed the best state results of her career, garnering medals in the shot put and 100-meter dash.
Harman’s six points were Nelson County’s lone scoring, as the Cardinals — in their first year in 2A after moving down from 3A — finished 22nd in the girls’ team competition. North Oldham was first with 90.5 points, easily outdistancing Lexington Catholic’s 63 total. Bardstown and Thomas Nelson failed to score.
In the boys’ competition, Highlands’ 56 points allowed the Bluebirds to edge North Oldham and Paducah Tilghman, who tied for second with 51 points. Boyle County and Elizabethtown finished just ahead of Bardstown with 33 points. Thomas Nelson and Nelson County failed to score.
Complete results for all local participants are listed below.
Bethlehem pole vaulters Ian Allen and Thomas Newcomb —projected in the top five in the event — were in action after press time for this issue in Saturday’s Class 1A state meet.
Goldring recorded a 42-07 1/4 triple jump to grab runner-up honors in the event, more than 19 inches better than his region mark. However, the guy who bested Goldring in the region, South Warren’s Bryan Cummings, also improved on his mark by a similar margin to win with a 44-07 jump. Goldring also medaled in both hurdle events, matching his region time in the 110 and improving by a half-second in the 300.
Other top performers for Bardstown included junior Gavin Corral, who posted a long jump of 20-4 3/4 to place second, just behind Union County’s JaShaud Fleming’s 20-07. The Tigers picked up six points in the discus with JayQuez Smith (5th) and Julian Rogers (7th) both scoring.
Bardstown’s Brandon Price medaled in the 400 and 1600, but he was unable to finish the 800, where he was projected in the top three.
Harman was outstanding in the 100, bettering her sixth-place regional time by more than a half-second, placing fourth with a 12.82 time. In the shot put, she placed eighth with a 32-10 1/4 heave.
