Devin Pounders

Tremont's Devin Pounders finished second in the 110-meter hurdles to lead the Eagles to a fourth place team finish at the 1A state track and field meet in Pearl last week.  

The boys track and field team from Tremont Attendance Center concluded their first season last Thursday at the 1A state meet in Pearl.

The Eagles didn't look like a novice unit in Pearl. Tremont finished fourth as a team with four athletes competing in eight events as well as the 4x400 relay team. All placed in the top-10 with five finishing in the top-5. 

Devin Pounders medaled in two of his three individual events. He won silver in the 110-meter hurdles and bronze in the 300 hurdles.

"I have been truly amazed how well our guys have done in their first year in track. It is just a testimonial to their work ethic and competitiveness," coach Brady Ramey told The Times.

"These guys love to compete. I don’t think it matters what it is. For them to finish in fourth place in the state as a team is an amazing accomplishment."

Tremont will lose senior meet participants Pounders, Brayden Burroughs and Konner Sartin to graduation but Tyler Whitaker, who competed in three events - shot put and 100 and 300 hurdles, at state, will headline a team who, with a year of experience, will build upon the success of this first season.
