The Tiger Track and Field team has gotten off to a good start at the Taco Bell Classic in Columbia, South Carolina. After the first day, the Tigers are tied for first with Marvin Ridge High School (Waxhaw, NC) at 10 points.

The 10 points the Tigers got on day one came from a great race by the 4 x 800 meter relay team. The relay team of Matthew Thomas, Ben Kleine-Kracht, Eli George and William Mulloy won the race with a time of 7:54.72. They are very close to the Kentucky state record of 7:52 and qualifying for New Balance Outdoor Nationals (7:53).

You can watch their great race here.

Day 2 starts at 8:30 am with the 3200 meter run.
