CHS Track & Field Win Again!

The outdoor season has been a success for the CHS track and field team. The Bears won their fourth outdoor meet in as many tries, as the squad scored 139.33 points to win the Bat Gourrier Relays at Broadmoor High School on Thursday, March 23. The Bears outpointed strong programs in Episcopal (123) and Zachary (68) to take the title.  

Zach Tom took home the win in the shot put with a throw of 54-10 and Matthew Berdon won the discus with a mark of 145-5. Harold Miller won the 1600 in 4:34 and Thomas Laville took first in the 3200 in 9:52.  
Kam Cummings scored a hurdles double in the 110 and 300. Cummings won the 110 hurdles by a nose in 15.21 and captured the 300 with room to spare in 38.94. Kam Cummings was also second in the triple jump with a 43′ effort and Paul Cassisa cleared 12′ for third. 

Sethan Hollier was second in the 100 and third in the 200 to rack up fourteen important points for the Bears. Brian Miller was third in the 800 and Collin Hedges placed third in the 1600. London Lewis had a discus throw of 139-6, which was good enough for second place.  

In the meet’s final event, the 4×400 relay, the Bears left no doubt at who would win the Gourrier team crown when it captured the race by more than six seconds. The team of D.J. Butler, Tyrell Jackson, Lane Palmisano and Seth Hollier stopped the clock in 3:21.30.  

The JV/B team will appear on Friday at the Brusly Invitational with the field events starting at 3 p.m. and the running at 4:30 p.m. The varsity team will travel to Mobile, Alabama, to compete in the prestigious Meet of Champions hosted by St. Paul’s Episcopal School. The meet begins at 12 p.m. and is an invitation only event.
