Calhoun High School competed in its first track and field meet in 30 years on Tuesday, Mar. 24.

Melinda Fitzwater, who has coached cross country at CHS for eight years, helped get the track and field team organized and approved by school officials. Tim Moore and Ernie Tingler are volunteer assistants.

CHS competed against host Roane County and Herbert Hoover.

Fitzwater, who will have additional athletes eligible when they reach their required 14 practice days, expressed thanks to several area teams, including Gilmer, where CHS goes to practice once a week; St. Marys, who donated a set of hurdles for the team to use; and Roane County, which also hosts the team for practices.

The Red Devil girls placed second and the boys were third.

Girls team scores were: Roane 141, Calhoun 49, Herbert Hoover 24, Roane B 6.

First place efforts by the CHS girls included Rebekah Amorosi in the discus (53’5) and Anna Sampson in the 3200 meter run (15:17.48).

Boys team scores were: Roane 116, Herbert Hoover 55, Calhoun 34, Roane B 12, Roane D 5, Roane C 1.
