BEDFORD – Bedford North Lawrence’s youth movement continued to show impressive results.

The Stars won 9 individual events and swept the relays while cruising past Mitchell and Shoals during girls high school track action on Friday night. BNL won the meet with 97 points, the Bluejackets totaled 56, and the Jug Rox scored 8 points.

BNL also dominated the boys meet, winning with 94 points, followed by Mitchell (54) and Shoals (7).

BNL’s Jillian Webb claimed three events in the girls meet, crossing the line first in the 100 meter dash (13.79 seconds), 400 (1:04.52) and sailing 15-8 1/4 in the long jump.

“Webb had another great night,” BNL coach Jim Lewis said. “Those young kids are coming through, getting better every night. All the times were better than last night (during a meet with Springs Valley and Eastern Greene).”

BNL’s Autumn Spence won the 1600.

Molly Lambrecht was a double winner, taking the shot put (30-11) and discus (98-5). Other BNL winners included Macie Cook (54.92 in the 300 hurdles), Gracie Tanksley (13:34.61 in the 3200), Jacy Hughes (8-6 in the pole vault) and Autumn Spence (6:09.90 in the 1600).

In the boys meet, the Stars won 8 individual events and swept the relays.

Taylor Porter breezed to victory in the 110 high hurdles in 16.13, Cooper Holmes left the field in his wake in the 1600 in 4:50.63, and Chance Pemberton won the 800 in 2:10.17.

In the field events, Aleric Juhl won the blue ribbon in the shot put (45-10 1/2), Drew Shoufler took the long jump (20-2), Cale Bunch won the discus (136-5), Lane Hawkins sailed over 6-4 in the high jump, and Alan Anderson cleared 12-2 in the pole vault.

BNL’s Cooper Holmes ran away from his competition in the 1600.


“I thought they ran well,” BNL coach Brett Deckard said. “The times were a little slow but we expected that with back-to-back meets. It’s not ideal, and I wouldn’t do it later in the season, but now we’re just running them into shape anyway.”

The Stars will return to action at Edgewood on Tuesday.
