Jacksonville boys take 4th at Bullard Panther Relays; Lady Panthers 2nd, Maidens 10th in varsity girl’s division

BULLARD — The Bullard Panther Relays are a relay like no others for the most-part.

Fourteen boy’s and girl’s teams warmed up on a chilly Friday afternoon for the Bullard Panther Relays, a track meet comprised of only two individual running events.  

All other races include a variety of relay races of different distances, and participants.

The Chapel Hill Bulldogs proved to be the strongest of the boy’s teams winning first place with 92 points. Lindale was second scoring 75.5 and right behind by a half-point at 75.0 were the Wildcats of Whitehouse. The Jacksonville Indians made a strong showing at fourth-place and 73.5 points before Spring Hill came in fifth overall for the boys with 59.points.

The Lady Eagles of Lindale dominated the girls relays amassing 1110.5 points, ahead of second place and host, Bullard Lady Panthers with 68 points.

Whitehouse Lady ‘Cats were third with 57.5, ahead of fourth-place Chapel Hill and Lufkin, totaling 52 points apiece. Spring Hill rung up 41 points for sixth-place and Rusk and Hudson tied for seventh-place with 29-points each,

Alike the boy’s events, relay races wee the mainstay and only the two hurdle races completed the running events. A full slate of field events opened the day of competition.
