Colonels win again

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Staff Writer

CORBIN — David Lennon’s Whitley County Colonel track team won its third meet of the season by capturing this past weekend’s Corbin Invitational.

Whitley County placed first with 165 points, edging out second place Corbin who totaled 125 points. Rounding out the remaining teams were South Laurel (113 points); Knox Central (93.5); Clay County (82.5); Williamsburg (58); Oneida Baptist (29); North Laurel (21); Knox Central ‘B’ (9) and Lynn Camp (4).

This was another good win for us,” Lennon said. “It really is surprising. We have really come on and we are a whole lot better than I expected.”

Lennon credits his team’s success to having a good mix of track athletes.

“The key to any success from Class A to Class 5A is getting the athletes,” he admitted. “Coach (Jason) Chappell, Coach (Jerry) Overbey and Coach (Donnie) Jones have done a fantastic job working with us and share the athletes.

“We’ve got a good mix of track kids, ranging from football and basketball players. It’s a win-win for everyone involved,” Lennon added. “It prepares them for their respective sport as well. Coach Aaron Jeffries has been recruiting the halls and we’ve been doing really well.”

Lennon pointed out the Corbin Invitational was stacked with some very good teams this past weekend.

“Corbin has a great program and so does Williamsburg,” he said. “There were a lot of  quality teams in this invitational. It’s been very pleasing to have this amount of success.”

Lennon hopes his squad will be able to continue their success once the Class 3A Regional meets begin.

“We’re hoping to,” he said. “Class 3A is one of the toughest regions in the state. We’ve got to compete against Pulaski County, Madison Central and George Rogers Clark. It’s an uphill battle for us, but we’re looking forward to the challenge, there is a chance for us to sneak in there and do well.”

On the girls’ side, Corbin ran away with top honors, finishing with 174 points while Knox Central (116.3 points); Williamsburg (93.3); South Laurel (62.83); North Laurel (60.5); Whitley County (58); Oneida Baptist (28); Central (28); Clay County (26); Knox Central ‘B’ (6) and Lynn Camp (6) followed.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
