Comments () A Text Size

COPPELL — Ryan will not have to worry about a lack of representation at next week’s UIL Class 5A Region I meet at Texas Tech.

The Raiders’ strong showing across the board Friday helped the boys win the District 5-5A/6-5A Area meet at Coppell with 113 points. Flower Mound Marcus finished second with 95 points.

The top four finishers in each event advance to the regional meet next week in Lubbock.

The Ryan boys swept the 400-meter relay (41.60 seconds), 800 relay (1 minute, 26.29 seconds) and the 1600 relay (3:19.03). The 400 relay broke the previous school record of 41.90 that was set in 2011. The 800 relay posted its fastest showing of the year.

Ryan junior Maurice Gordon won the 200 after he crossed the line in 21.89 seconds. Ryan’s Ryan Wommack won the pole vault after he cleared 14 feet, 6 inches.

Junior Terell Cross finished second in the 400 with a time of 49.42, while Randalle Williams finished third in the 300 hurdles with a time of 39.71.

Ryan senior Reese Strait finished fourth in the discus (148-1) and the shot put (49-8 1/2). Ryan seniors Preston Compton and Xavier Gray earned top-four finishes in the triple jump. Compton came in third at 43-10 and Gray squeezed into fourth with a mark of 43-6 1/2.

Ryan senior Trent Willis finished eighth in the long jump and sixth in the triple jump, and sophomore Ken McLaurin was eighth in the shot put.

For the girls, Ryan’s Ladaja Sutton finished seventh in the 200 (26.36), and Kenya Dumas was seventh in the shot (32-10).
