The first track rankings were released last week and to no one's surprise, Dutchtown sits close to the top--ranking at No. 3 in the state.

They quickly proved why they're so highly-touted as they collected yet another first-place finish. This time, they got the win at the Episcopal 4-Way meet at Episcopal.

Once again, Corey McBride dominated the competition in the 100 as he blazed a time of 10.5 with his teammate, Kajan Coleman, coming in at second with a time of 11.2. Coleman also finished second in the 200.

Chris Miller won the 1,600 with a time of four minutes and 40.5 seconds with teammate Ben Vasterling finishing second. Vasterling also finished third in the 3,200.

Tyler Hughes won another 110 hurdles event with a time of 14.4 while teammate Justin Reid finished second at 15.2. Tyler Sarrazin won the 300 hurdles with a time of 45.5.

Dutchtown also won the 4 x 100 relay with a time of 42.4 seconds.

From the field, the Griffins won five of the seven events.

Jordan Marcell won the high-jump with a jump of 13 feet and six inches, Brady Bergeron won the pole vault with the same measurement and McBride won the long-jump with a jump of an even 22 feet.

David Elias made easy work of the competition at the shot put with a measurement of 53 feet and 6.75 inches while EcKard Johnson won for the discus throw with a toss of 155 feet and six inches. His teammate, Trey Talley, finished second in the event.

The Dutchtown girls put up a solid showing of their own.

Precious Semien won the 800 with a time of two minutes and 33.9 seconds,

and the Lady Griffins captured a win in the 4 x 100 relay

Taylor Bennett was solid all day. She had second-place finishes in both the 200 and 400. And from the field, she won both the long-jump and the triple-jump.

Dutchtown will be back in action on Thursday as they travel to Broadmoor for the Buccaneer Relays.
