annual AHSAA State Indoor Track & Field Championships being held at the Birmingham CrossPlex. Hoover, Homewood, St. Paul’s Episcopal and American Christian led the girls’ competition.
The championships conclude Saturday with action getting underway at 8 a.m. The NFHS Network will live-stream the action Saturday. The link for access is:
Hoover led Mountain Brook 33-23 in the 7A boys’ standings with Hewitt-Trussville third with 21 points and McGill-Toolen Catholic fourth with 15.50. In Class 6A, defending state champion Opelika posted 48 points to take the first-day lead with Homewood second with 28, Columbia third with 20 and Cullman fourth with 19. Leading Class 4A/5A was Scottsboro with 36 points. Madison Academy was second with 22, Winfield third with 20 and Arab fourth with 16. Both Scottsboro and Arab dropped from 6A to 5A this season while Madison Academy and defending 1A/3A state champion Winfield moved up from 3A.
American Christian posted 40 points Friday to lead the 1A/3A boys’ division. Montgomery Academy and Altamont had 20 points each and Westminster of Oak Mountain had 19. Homewood had a commanding lead after day one of the Class 6A girls’ competition with 59 points. Defending champion Pelham was second with 22 followed by Cullman, 18, and Opelika, 15. In Class 7A, defending champ Hoover built a 12-point lead in the girls’ competition with 47 points. James Clemens and Mountain Brook were tied for second with 35 with 31.
St. Paul’s Episcopal, which holds the AHSAA state record with 23 state girls’ indoor championships including the last seven in a row, had a 41-28 lead over Beauregard after Friday’s Class 4A/5A events at the CrossPlex. Montgomery Catholic was third with 24 and Scottsboro was tied with Central-Tuscaloosa at fourth with 19 each. Defending champion American Christian built a 49-30 lead over Whitesburg Christian in the 1A/3A girls competition. Montgomery Academy was third after day one with 26 points and Westminster of Oak Mountain was fourth with 24.
In the individual competition, senior Trey Cunningham of Winfield continued his assault on the AHSAA state record book with two Class 4A/5A marks in the 60-meter hurdles and in the 60-meter prelims. He set an overall state-meet record in the hurdles and tied the overall record in the dash.
Karon Delince of Central-Phenix City also established a new 7A record with his prelim-leading time of 6.84 seconds. His time, which beat the old record set by Emmanuel Tait of Thompson (6.91) last year, also set a new state meet overall record – just minutes after Cunningham had tied the record in the Class 4A/5A prelims.
Cunningham, who set the all-time CrossPlex high school record last week in the Last Chance Classic with a 6.78 time, clocked 6.85 in his race to equal the mark set by Nathanaiel Huggins of Opelika last year in the Class 6A meet. Cunningham also set a new 4A/5A record. Shaquawn Vandergrift of Moody set the previous 4A/5A mark (6.95) at last year’s state meet.
The Patriots standout, who signed with Florida State, also set a new AHSAA Indoor State and Class 4A/5A record in the 60-meter hurdles with a winning time of 7.58 seconds in the prelims Friday. He was short of his National record time of 7.49 seconds he ran last week in the Last Chance Classic meet at the CrossPlex but was still fast enough to shatter the AHSAA overall indoor state meet record (7.80) set by Marlon Humphrey of Hoover in 2013.
Hunter Appling of West Point also eclipsed the old 4A/5A record in the prelims with his time of 8.27 seconds. The previous record holder was Lezyon Lagard of Central-Tuscaloosa, who clock 8.30 in the 2013 state meet.
Columbia’s JuVaughn Blake tied the all-time indoor state meet high jump record with a winning 6-10.25 leap. That height tied he mark set by Mitch Dozier of Homewood in 1981.
