Weatherford squads claimed three of four team titles on Friday at the Seventh-Annual Johnny Perkins — Pirate Relays in Granbury. Among the varsity boys and girls and junior varsity boys and girls teams, the Roos claimed 17 first-place finishes, 18 second-place and 14 thirds. WHS also had multiple point-scoring, top-six finishers in 27 events.

The varsity girls were the most dominant in their six-group field, scoring 167 points as a team and besting second-place Stephenville by 58 points. 

Among the top performers were the varsity girls’ 4x400 relay, with the foursome of Madyson Young, Cheyenne Barfield, Alyssa Wisdom and Madison Cooley taking first place for their third-consecutive meet. Sarah Calhoon took an impressive first place in the discus throw, beating the next-nearest competitor by nearly 10 feet. Madison Gaston topped the field in the 100-meter dash with more than a two-tenths margin over second place.

In the varsity boys’ division, Jaakan Norwood also took gold in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.62 seconds, also earning first in the 200-meter race. Grant Werts is having continued success in his field event, heaving the discus 143 feet to take first, while teammate Jose Tovar took third in the event. At the team level, the WHS varsity scored 137.5 points, topping host Granbury by more than 10 points.

The Weatherford JV 4x400 relay team of Garrett Hill, Dakota Frysinger, Tyson Tilley and Keshawn Green took the top prize, finishing nearly two seconds ahead of Granbury. The performance helped the junior varsity boys tally 163 points in their first-place team finish.

Caroline Lankston ran away from the field in the JV 100-meter dash, helping the junior varsity girls claim third in team competition.

Weatherford is off for the spring break, returning to competition on Mar. 31 at Fossil Ridge, in Keller.
