Bluestone duo place in state track meet

SoVaNow.com / June 05, 2013
Two female track and field athletes at Bluestone High School turned in strong efforts at the VHSL Group A State track meet at Radford University on Saturday.

Tiffany Davis, a junior competing in the shot put, placed eighth in the state with a toss of 33 feet, six inches. The winning throw of 40 feet, 5-1/2 inches by Alexis Brown of James River High School was more than a foot better than the next longest toss.

Bluestone’s Sierra Carpenter, a freshman, also placed eighth statewide in the discus throw. Carpenter’s mark of 100 feet, 8 inches was the best among all freshman competitors at the meet.

Davis and Carpenter scored a point each for Bluestone in the points competition, placing Bluestone 36th. The Group A team title went to James River.

Bluestone’s 4x100 girls relay team also competed in the state meet, finishing 11th. The team of Alexis Oliver, Ay’Sha Wesley, Bria Long, Brittney Terry and Chantia Burchett (alt) recorded a time of 52.01 seconds in the race.
