Cougar track teams handle Mustangs

Friday, May 2, 2008

BAINBRIDGE -- The North Putnam track teams hosted Fountain Central Thursday night in a windy and slightly chilly affair for May 1. The Cougars, however, were able to get the better of an undermanned Mustangs team and the elements to capture a pair of victories.

The girls defeated the Mustangs 85-36, while the boys won 81.5-36.5.

"I was proud of the way the kids did. They seemed to give a good, hearty effort," North Putnam coach Kevin Lutes said. "I know Fountain Central didn't have all their top people running in everything, but even in the events they did, our kids put forth a good effort."

Jasmine Mimms and Cassie Preecs anchored the Cougar girls' attack, as each won three events.

Mimms ran a 19.97 to win the 100 hurdles and a 1:04 in the 300 hurdles. She also won the 100 in 14.61.

Preecs owned the field events, throwing for victory in both the shot put (28-feet-5-inches) and the discus (75-6.5), as well as winning the high jump (4-6).

Laura McGaughey also claimed first place in the 400 with a 1:13. Whitney High won the 3,200 in 14:30.

The Cougars also won a pair of relays. The 400 team of McGaughey, Stacey Stinson, Shannon Brock and Mimms won with a time of 58.2. The 1,600 team of Stinson, McGaughey, Jessie Small and Ashley Novak ran a time of 6:33.93.

The boys' team won 10-of-15 events with a balanced attack, as their seven individual wins came from six different athletes.

Tim Mason was the only Cougar win multiple wins, taking the 110 hurdles in 20.27 and the 300 hurdles in 45.56.

Kasey McLaughlin claimed the 800 in 2:24.
