CLEAR SPRING - The Jefferson track and field teams had a big day at the Clear Spring Invitational on Wednesday, sweeping the boys and girls team titles by comfortable margins.

Jefferson finished first in the boys meet with 154.5 points. Williamsport (100.5 points) edged McConnellsburg (98 points) for second place.

The Jefferson girls scored 204 points, easily outdistancing second-place Williamsport (132).

"I think that it was a good start to the season," Clear Spring coach Jaime Mason said. "All of the schools seemed to have good performances, considering it was early in the year. It is always fun to be able to compete against schools that we don't see too often like McConnellsburg, Jefferson and Berkeley Springs."

The Jefferson girls won the 800-meter relay in 1 minute, 52 seconds and the 400 relay in 52.5.

Shardal Twyman was a triple winner for the Jefferson girls, winning the 100 (12.4), 200 (26.3) and the long jump (16 feet, 8.5 inches). Maggie Smith won the 300 hurdles (50.1) and the pole vault (7-6).


Jason Grammo was a winner in the boys 110 hurdles (15.2), Jeremy Maley won the 100 (11.09) and Andy Franklin was victorious in the 1,600 (4:41.2) for the Jefferson boys.

"Jefferson was so strong," Mason said. "They just dominated everything. They won individual titles in a lot of the events for both boys and girls."

Nevelle Pierre was a double winner for the North Hagerstown, winning the long jump (20-9) and the triple jump (43-8.5).

Chris Cornwell won the pole vault (11-6) for the Williamsport boys.

Jess Clingan won the 100 hurdles (17.0) and Theresa Ruland won the 800 (2:33.8) for the Williamsport girls.

Williamsport swept the boys and girls distance relays.
