The track season came to a close for the Stephenville Honeybee and Yellow Jacket track teams Saturday as 4A Region I meet came to an end.
The meet began Friday with multi-event athlete Josh Nowell taking part in the high jump. Nowell qualified for the event with a jump of 5'10 at the area meet and topped that mark Friday.
The first four attempts for Nowell went very smoothly. He sailed over 5'6, 5'8, 5'10 and 6'0 ft. all on one attempt. However, once the bar hit the 6'2 mark, it proved to be just a tad too high for the district champ.
Clearing 6'0 ft. was good enough for Nowell to make the podium as he finished in third place. The top two competitors automatically booked their ticket for the state meet, however, with the wild card still up for grabs, Nowell could find himself in Austin competing as well once all of the regional meets tally up their results.
Nowell was the only Stephenville athlete at the meet to make the podium.
While one athlete made the podium, several advanced from the prelims to the finals which took place Saturday.
Those included Hailey Martin who later finished in seventh place in the 100M hurdles and the Honeybee 4x200M relay team, which consisted of Bailey McBee, Kristen Pettit, Bayleigh Chaviers and Martin.
The relay team placed seventh as well.
