Carroll County High School hosted the second annual Carroll County Invitational Track Meet Friday. Twelve schools from Kentucky and Indiana competed in the event.

“Overall the night went very well especially with the large number of teams that we had attending the meet,” Carroll County Head Coach Joe Creager said. “It was a great showcase for our kids as they competed against some very large schools and were still able to hold their own.”

In the boys’ competition, the Panthers were without star seniors DAnthony Collins and Andy Sisenstein, but had outstanding performances by Evan Mefford, Tyler Grant, Jacob Griffin and Chris Satterly, Creager said. The Panthers managed to capture third place.

Satterly was named the Boys’ Most Valuable Player by earning 36 individual points with a first place finish in the 300 meter hurdles, first place in the long jump, second in the triple jump, and second in high jump.

Boys’ team scores were as follows: 1. Boone County, 156; 2. Newport, 123.50; 3. Carroll County, 75; 4. Trimble County, 69; 5. Holmes, 59.50; 6. Williamstown, 55; 7. Grant County, 54; 8. Owen County, 37; 9. Gallatin County, 19; 10. Bracken County, 9.

The girls’ team had a rough night with senior leader Teila Winburn being under the weather as well as a false start by Nora Fremin in the 100 meter dash, Creager said. The girls were led by Nora Fremin with a first place in the 100 meter hurdles and sixth place in long jump. MaryEsther Fremin scored a third in long jump and seventh in the 100 meter dash.
