Boys Varsity Track · Boys Track: Dragons finish 2nd, Gonzalez and others Advance Individually


JEFFERSONVILLE — Jeffersonville won the meet with 157 points and Silver Creek finished second with 113 1/2. It was Jeff’s 45th sectional championship and its second straight.

With two wins, Silver Creek hurdler Tremaine Gonzalez  stood out in the meet and looks to be more than ready for the upcoming regional.

Gonzalez began his return to the state meet with a win in the 110 high hurdles. Gonzalez won in 14.59 seconds. Charlestown’s Steven Delaney was runner-up in 15.08.

“The biggest part now is the start and getting your lead leg down over the hurdle,” Gonzalez said. “I’ve shown steady improvement.”

Speaking of improvement, Gonzalez has focused more on the 300 hurdles this season and it’s paid off. He’s almost two seconds faster than last year.

“For the past three years, it’s been the 110,” he said. “I’ve been looking forward to the 300 this year. I’m proud of my progress.”

Gonzalez won the 300 hurdles in 39.44 and Delaney advanced with a runner-up finish in 39.63.

It wasn’t all runner-ups for Delaney. He got a win in the long jump with a leap of 21-feet, 4-inches. Silver Creek’s Jacob Graf was a close second. He also jumped 21-4 but lost the tiebreaker.
