If the Hennessey girls track team can win a fourth consecutive Class 2A state title on Saturday, it’ll be thanks in large part to its performance in the pole vault on Friday.

Kinsey Reeves cleared a height of 9-feet, 6-inches to win her second consecutive Class 2A girls pole vault championship.

Sisters Erin (9-0) and Amanda Thompson (8-6) also shared the medal stand with Reeves, placing third and fifth.

“They’re my best friends, so we’re all basically sisters,” Reeves said. “We’re practicing together all the time, so when some of your top competition is right there all the time it makes us all a lot better.”

The Eagles will enter Saturday in first place after racking up 42 points on Friday. Millwood is second with 28 points and Warner third with 27.

SEVERAL RECORDS FALL ON FRIDAY

It was quite the record-setting performance in the Class 2A boys’ 800 relay.

The final race of the day saw Frederick (1:31.53), Millwood (131.63), Colcord (1:32.14), Hobart (1:32.37), and Wynnewood (1:33.60) break the previous meet record of 1:33.49 set by Colcord last season.

In the Class 2A girls’ 400, Millwood’s Breonna Hall (57.66) and Tonkawa’s Omega Reese (58.11) both broke the previous meet record of 58.54 set in 1990.
