The Marion County High School track and field team wouldn't be able to complete their first meet of the season in Green County due to inclement weather.

That wouldn't stop the Knights and Lady Knights from putting on a strong showing.

"Of course, Jermaine Porter and Chris Means impressed me," Head Coach Robby Peterson said. "On the female side, Shana Litsey did well. I only got to see a couple of my young girls run. In field events, Natavia Young showed up and did a good job in the triple jump. Jermaine was doing well in the pole vault. He won the high jump. He finished well in the triple and high jump. Jermaine did a good job his first meet. He and Chris are going to have to carry us on the boys side. Buster Hazelwood did well running the 100 for the first time. Overall it looked like a good group of kids. I really liked the way they competed in the first meet. I think the kids were disappointed because they didn't finish the meet. They ended up not making it up."

Lightning forced the meet to conclude. Teams weren't able to make it back to Green County to complete the event.

Marion County's next meet will be at home on April 13. It will feature eight to 10 nearby teams including Nelson County, Bardstown, Green County, Bethlehem, Washington County and Campbellsville. The meet begins at five o'clock.
