Pointer Relays – 9th Grade Track Meet

Pointer Relays - 9th Grade Track Meet

Zak Gaines

On March of Tuesday, the 16th 9th-grade track boys and girls went head to head at Van Buren High School against multiple other schools.

Chaffin Jr High ended up winning 7 races and placing 2nd place overall, beating almost every school. Track coaches say that if they can work more on field events, they will be able to win the conference. 

Kari Carter won the 100-yard dash, and Chaffin won all four relays. The 9th-grade MVPs were Cadence and Caelynn Hodge, they won 3rd and 5th in their individual 800 race. 

The conference is going down at Southside on April 20th.  Coaches even said that it would have been nice to have some 8th and even 7th graders to help with the conference.  Chaffin’s track team’s number one goal is to win the conference.
