Yellow Jackets find success with rest

Going into their meet in Murphy, coach Zach Moss and his track and field team knew the final results might look a bit different than they have throughout most of the season.
“I chose to rest all of my No.1 relay teams and many of our top athletes. It also gave some of the younger kids a chance to compete,” Moss said.
Even with several of his stars not competing, Moss’s Yellow Jacket squad still managed to earn podium finishes and both the men and women finished second overall.
Men’s top individual performances
Brian Smith: 100 meter, first place; 200 meter, first place; long jump, second place
Logan Thurmond: discuss throw, second place.
Wes Fulford: 110 meter hurdles, third place; 300 meter hurdles, second place.
Adam Urbaniuk: 800 meter run, first place; 1,600 meter run, first place.
Logan Cowart: shot put, second place.
