SUPER SATURDAY! Deep Run, Highland Springs, Mills Godwin Among Title Winners!

The Highland Springs boys track team held off Lee-Davis to win the inaugural Conference 11 Tournament Saturday evening in the Ashe Center in Richmond. Field Athlete of the Year Tyquan Rowley aided the Springers' cause, winning the triple jump (44 feet, 1 inch) and placing second in the long jump (21 feet, 9 1/2 inches), just behind teammate Marcus Taylor (22 feet, 1/4 inch).

The Springers tallied 137.5 points. Lee-Davis was second at 124, Atlee third at 98.5, Douglas Freeman fourth at 66 and Deep Run fifth at 63.

The top girls team from the county was Mills Godwin, who fell five points short of a Conference championship, fallling 115-120 to Atlee. Henrico placed third with 94 points followed by Highland Springs (58) and Deep Run (52).

Hermitage's Devin Barnes was named Conference 11 Boys Runner of the Year.

Deep Run was victorious on its home floor, but barely, in the first-ever Conference 11 Gymnastics Tournament on Saturday. The Wildcats tallied 141.25 points to fend off Patrick Henry, who had the top two all-around gymnasts, second in team at 140.525.

Mills Godwin finished 3rd at 139.575 while Lee-Davis was in 4th at 137.7.

Kelly Price of the Eagles won the beam competition with a score of 9.475. Her teammate, McKaella Grow, was second at 9.225.

Host Mills Godwin survived a scare from Lee-Davis to win the first-ever Conference 11 Tournament Saturday, winning 203-200. Ten Eagles won tickets to 5A South Regional action next week, while four won Conference individual championships: Carson Tinsley, Joe Shupp, Mitchell Wein and Justice Williams.

Glen Allen wrestling fell just short of winning the inaugural Conference 20 Tournament in Dinwiddie Saturday, losing a five-point lead to eventual champion Hanover in the championship round.  J.R. Tucker finished fourth in the seven-team conference event.
