The Carroll County High School girls’ and boys’ track teams competed in the 50th annual Mason Dixon Games Indoor Track and Field Championships in Louisville Saturday. The prestigious indoor event was held in Broadbent Arena at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

“We had some very strong showings again from senior Chris Satterly and freshman Nora Fremin,” Carroll Head Coach Joe Creager said.

In the girls’ Class A competition, Carroll County’s ladies achieved the following: Nora Fremin placed second in the 55 meter Dash and Teila Winburn finished eighth in the 55 meter hurdles. The 4x200 team of MaryEsther Fremin, Nora Fremin, Teila Winburn and Kaydee McCollum finished sixth. Carroll’s 4x800 team of Kirsten Arvin, Brittany Arvin, Kim Ketterer and Sydney Brewer finished sixth. The Lady Panthers finished 12th out of 22 teams in Class A.

In the boys’ events, senior Andy Sisenstein finished just out of the awards in the 55 meter dash (being beaten by .02 seconds). Micah Jones had a career best time in the 1500 meter run with a 4:57.24. The 4x200 team of DAnthony Collins, Tyler Grant, Brandon McAlister and Sisenstein finished in eighth place. The 4x400 team of Collins, Grant, Sisenstein and Seth Lilly finished seventh. The 4x800 team of Collins, Michael Hedges, Micah Jones and Lilly finished fifth. Chris Satterly finished third in the high jump and seventh in the long jump. The Panthers finished 10th out of 23 teams in Class A.

More than 600 student athletes participated in the Class A competition. In all, more than 3,000 middle and high school students from schools of all classes participated in the competition.

Carroll County’s appearance in the event came at the culmination of what Creager called “a difficult week filled with injuries.”

The most crushing blow, Creager said, was dealt to senior Jacob Griffin who suffered a torn hamstring. The coach said Griffin would likely miss a month of action while recuperating.

Carroll County returns to action on Thursday, March 18, hosting an outdoor tri-county meet at the CCHS campus. The event is set to begin at 5 p.m. Coach Creager said he invites everyone to “come and support the Panthers as they begin their outdoor season.”
