Marshall County graduate and Tennessee signee Sophie Galloway clears a hurdle in Wednesday’s 100 meter hurdle race at the First Region Class 3A Championship at MCHS. Galloway won the event in 14.33 seconds and also took first place in the 200 meter dash, long jump and triple jump.

Marshall County senior Sophie Galloway put together an impressive performance Wednesday at the First Region Class 3A Track and Field Championship meet with four first-place finishes. Those, coupled with other top placements, help lead the Lady Marshals to the overall Class 3A Regional team championship with 141 points.

Galloway, a University of Tennessee track signee, opened with her winning the 100 meter hurdles with a 14.33-second time. She later dominated the jumps with a 19-foot, 0.5-inch leap in the long jump and a 40-6 in the triple jump. She also took first place in the 200 meter dash at 25.65 seconds.

Just the week before, Galloway had also competed in the Murray High All-Comers meet and won the high jump (5-4) and shot put (35-8).

The Lady Marshals claimed the top two spots in high jump with Presleigh Jennings and Tori McCracken both clearing 5 feet and taking first and second, respectively. Their 4x100 and 4x200 meter relay teams — comprised of Laney Evans, Layne Pea, Jordyn Reed and Charley Pursley — also claimed gold in respective 52.10 second and 1 minute, 49.66 second times.

Maci Brown took second place in discus with a 100-1 toss.

The top two finishers in each event guaranteed themselves a place in the state meet. Additional at-large qualifiers will be determined at a later date upon the completion of all the regional meets within Class 3A.

On the boys’ side, Owensboro won the boys team championship, scoring 122 points. Marshall County (97 points) and McCracken County (82) rounded out the top three.

Runner Cade Flatt made his mark with two top finishes in the 400 meter dash (49.45) and 800 meter run (1:59.27). Will Davis finished second in the 400 dash with a 49.69 time.

Ben Fiser won the discus with a 158-1 throw, while Chase Thompson took second in the shot put at 49-2.

The Marshals 4x400 relay team of Flatt, Davis, Isaiah Kirby and Preston Lamb finished second in 3:27.92.
