  • The Harrisburg High School boys track and field team served up another helping of home cooking as they took the top spot as Tuesday’s Harrisburg Open at Taylor Field.
    The Bulldogs bested the field of seven, winning 10-of-19 events to finish with 168 points.
    Anna-Jonesboro finished second with 115 points, while Herrin was third with 111 points. Massac County, Carmi-White County, Vienna and Eldorado rounded out the field.
    Corbin Crim brought home four first place finishes, three as an individual, as the sophomore won the long jump (20-foot-8), 100 meter dash (10.9) and 200 meters (22.4).
    Crim teamed up with Dustin Lane, Preston Boone and Luke Horton to win the 4x100 with a time of 44.1
    Horton won the 800 meters, coming in under his desired time of 2:00 with a 1:58.9. Horton then teamed up with Michael Victoria, Cody Rightnowar and Boone to win the 4x400 relay with a time of 3:40.
    Tyler Marler won the 110 meter high hurdles with a time of 15.5 and James Curtis won the 400 meters with a time of 54.3
    In the field, Kane Carrigan won the discuss with a toss of 139-feet-9 and Austin Lowry won the pole vault, clearing 12-foot.
    Lane finished second in two events, the long jump and 100 meter dash, while Horton finished second in the 200 meter dash.
    The 4x800 and the 4x200 relay team also finished second.
    Harrisburg now prepares for a Friday date at the Sparta Invitational and head coach Zach Cox likes the direction the program is heading.
    “(Tuesday) was a good day for the program,” Cox said. “Everyone was on the same page and the kids did a good job of helping out. We have to keep working hard and get ready for Sparta Friday.”
