Airline senior Jeremiah Boudreaux won three events in the boys division of the Hoss Garrett Relays hosted by Ruston Thursday.

Boudreaux swept the hurdles, winning the 110 meters in 15.15 seconds and the 300 in 37.60. He also took the high jump with a leap of 6 feet, 4 inches.

Boudreaux’s 300 time would’ve placed second in last year’s Class 5A state meet.

Boudreaux finished .26 ahead of Tioga’s Kadrmas Maximus in the 110 and 1.97 ahead of Maximus in the 300.

Airline’s George Tillman was second in the high jump with a 6-2.

Benton’s Miller Malley had an impressive vault of 14-6 in the pole vault. That would’ve been good enough for second in last year’s 5A meet.

Quitman’s Brian Lay, the reigning Class B state champion, also cleared 14-6. He finished first on fewer misses.

Benton’s Jeffery King finished second in the javelin with a 176-10. West Monroe’s Jaxon Talley won with a 190-20.

Airline’s Malik Word finished second in the discus with a 133-5. Alexandria’s Douglas Hunter Rivett won with a 161-6.

Airline’s Zion Smith finished third both hurdles events and fourth in the long jump.

Benton finished third in the 4X800 relay.

Airline’s Shelby Ledet won the girls high jump with a leap of 5-2. West Ouachita’s Macy Hattaway was second with a 5-0.

Airline’s Ke’Zyriah Sykes finished second in the 100 hurdles in 15.58. Holy Savior Menard’s A’Shyria Burns won in 48.12.

Sykes also finished third in the 100 and 200.

Benton’s Sadie Hamby won the discus with a 113-10. Ruston’s Journi Douglas was second with a 99-4. Hamby finished second in the javelin with a 115-0. Sterlington’s Ana Robinson won with a 126-6.

Benton’s Addyson Hulett was third in the 400 in 58.43.  Benton’s Tameara Player was third in the shot put with a 33-8.

Airline finished second in the 4X100 relay in 48.58. Alexandria won in 48.12. Airline also finished third in the 4X200.

Benton was third in the 4X800.

The 3,200 and 4X400 relay weren’t held in both divisions. 

Airline finished third in the boys division with 68 points. Alexandria won with 105.

Airline was fifth in the girls division with 47 points and Benton sixth with 44. Alexandria won with 129.5.
