It was a record-breaking afternoon for Dawson County junior Ethan Cameron, who set a new school record in the triple jump (42’5”), before joining up with teammates Cooper Freeman, Sean Thomas and Noah Brock to set another school record in the 4x100-meter relay (44.49 seconds) on April 12 in a tri-match with East Hall and North Hall at Tiger Stadium.

The Tigers won the tri-match 129-48-6 over North Hall and East Hall respectively to finish the season a perfect 12-0 heading into the Region 7-AAA meet.

Cameron also won the 110-meter high hurdles, while Brock won the 100-meter dash, Thomas won the 200-meter dash and Freeman won the pole vault competition.

Other Dawson County winners were Christopher Shelp in the 800 and 1600-meter dashes, Nico Poston in the 3200-meter dash and Kelton LeBaron in the 300-meter hurdles. T.J. Wilson won the shot put and discus, Zack Norris won the long jump and Carlos Keller won the high jump. The boys also won the 4x400-meter relay.

The Lady Tigers improved their overall record to 10-1-1 with an 86-54-19 win over North Hall and East Hall respectively.

Avery Young won the 400-meter dash, Frankie Muldoon won the 800 and 1600-meter dashes, Jenna Lecours won the 3200-meter dash and Anna Lowe won the shot put. The girls also won the 4x100 and 4x400-meter relay races by virtue of being the only school to compete.
