Corbin placed 2nd in shot put with a new personal record of 42 feet 10 inches. The only athlete to finish with a better throw had to break a middle school state record to do so, head coach Joe Creager said in an email. Corbin was the only seventh grader to finish in the top 15.
The Carroll County Middle School baseball team is very young and inexperienced, but are improving day by day, said head coach Jimmy Ray. He said the purpose of middle school baseball was to teach the players fundamentals and to prepare them for high school baseball.
This is Ray’s first year as head coach, but he has helped coach both the middle school and high school teams in the past. He also coaches a summer league baseball team.
Fourth-grader Clara Tuttle and third-grader Kennedy Daigle were the top performers in the Carroll County Elementary track team’s first meet on Thursday, April 12, at Henry County High School.
Head coach Joe Creager said elementary track is different from high school track in that athletes are allowed to participate in more than four events per meet, and the events are broken down by age group. The 4x100 meter relay also is both co-ed and across school and team lines.
