Perfect storm slows early progress

The early analysis of our area’s high school performances would be labeled lukewarm

at best. But the obvious factors should offer easy explanations at this point.

Many of the stronger teams have participated in one or two meets and have worked with

very limited practice time due to cold and wet weather conditions.

There are considerable improvements and personnel changes likely with so many relay

teams that it’s hard to guess how strong our area will be in those events.

Then there’s basketball and lengthy seasons unfolded at Beaumont United and Silsbee.

Therefore much is dramatically going to change in the next two weeks, especially if warmer

weather should arrive.

Thursday’s meet at Vidor ought to showcase most of Orange County’s serious track

athletes. Kollyn Brown and Annabelle Fisher are quite serious in the Little Cypress-Mauriceville


Those two athletes already are improving upon last year’s season-best outings. Vidor has

encouraging competitors too.

One of the most interesting events at Vidor may be the girls high jump if Vidor’s Jaden Lee

should battle for the gold medal. A Vidor sophomore, Lee owns the area lead.

It’s also safe to believe that Mike Pierce’s will be an improved squad this spring due to more

maturity in that Mustang senior class.

Do not be surprised if some special performances also should emerge on Thursday from the

Hamshire-Fannett and East Chambers athletes who travel to Woodville.

Friday morning offers an early-bird special at Nederland with field events starting at 10 a.m.

A high-quality field is expected with Port Arthur and both Beaumont ISD schools, as well as

the Mid-County athletes and Bridge City and Barbers Hill.

Two very Mid-County jumpers may compete in the girls long jump with Sanaria Butler of

PN-G and Ke’Asia Hall of Nederland.

Can Port Arthur drop into the 41s on the sprint relay. The Titans ran a 42.07 at Crosby and

veteran mentor Darrell Granger and his staff feel they can go lower. One of Granger’s old staff

members, West Brook boss Kendrick Johnson has the Bruins buzzing and awaiting brighter days.

Last but not least, keep sending those results to [email protected] My thanks to Gary

Stelly, Van Wade and Allie Crommett for their help last week. And good luck to all the runners

and jumpers this Thursday and Friday.
