EJHS track finishes season strong
The East Jessamine Track and Field team has had a strong season as they come to year’s end before their conference meet and regions. Two weekends ago, the East Jessamine boys and girls team went to Bourbon County Relays and the boys took home 1st place with a score of 148 points. They were led by senior Deanta Sanon who scored 32.5 points, juniors Zion Morgan with 23 points and Preston Sagastegui, who scored 20 points. The girls side placed 2nd only by one point from 1st place. They were led by seniors Jaylnn Landversicht and Taliyah Colonge scoring 44.5 points. This past weekend East Jessamine traveled down to Somerset for the Lake Cumberland Classic Invitational. Again the boys took home 1st place this time only winning by two points in which the final event the 4×400 relay had to be won to win the meet. They were led by Zion Morgan and Preston Sagastegui to score a majority of the points. But overall a complete team effort, where every event counted and every person had to score some how for us to win. The girls placed 4th, as they were short handed due to senior trip and educational opportunities. At 6 p.m. Friday, East Jessamine will host the annual Central Kentucky Conference at the West Jessamine Soccer and Track complex behind West Jessamine Middle School. Everyone is invited to come out and see thee meet. Admission is $5.
