Burgin, Schirmer get PRs at Henry

-A A +A

Tre Burgin and Taylor Schirmer each had personal bests as the Panthers competed at Henry County Tuesday, March 19.

On a very windy and chilly evening, the track and field team competed against the North Oldham girls and NCKC rivals Henry, Owen and Trimble counties.

The Panthers had a rough start with senior Nora Fremin and junior Michael Burns both taking pretty nasty falls in their races (100-meter dash for Nora and 4x100-meter relay for Michael), head coach Joe Creager said in an email.

But the Panthers came back with strong performances and personal bests despite the cold gusty air.

Burgin topped 8 feet in the pole vault for the first time in his career to place third. Schirmer out leaned Trimble County’s Connor Ball for a new PR and first place in the 300-meter hurdles.

Sophomore Ashley Srouder tossed her way into second place in both shot put and discus on the girls side.

The team scores did not turn out as well as Carroll would have hoped, especially after the disqualification in the boys 4x100. The boys finished fourth in the four-way meet, while the girls also ended at the back of the pack in the five-way competition.
