PRINCETON — The Princeton Senior High School team feels good about what they have and improvement they have shown throughout the season so far.
The Tigers track and field teams have a couple of meets under their belt and so far they feel good about what they have been able to show and do so far. Coach Tressie Hamm return in charge of the girls team while coach Tank Tunstalle is in charge of the boys team once again.
Coach Hamm expressed that while the girls team is small in numbers the team has great attitudes and are willing to try different events. The goal is to build up the athletes to compete in several different events. Samantha Ellison, Tamya Smith, and Kaitlin Bailey are returning mid distance runners. Savanna Ross is the only senior and she runs the 3200 meter race. Princeton has three new throwers this year, Allana Taylor, Isabella Fields, and Gamalia Burress. The other members on the team are Breanna Decanay, Isabella Burns, Hannah Catron, Kaitlyn Chainese, Andi Graham, and Rebecca Pruett.
On the boys side, the team is smaller than in the recent seasons as well but the Tigers have been competing hard. Tunstalle has talked about how the team has been willing to sacrifice and do events or things they wouldn’t normally do.
The Tigers standouts include T.J Tate, Chiron Cannady, Ben Walker, and Josiah Honaker. They also have Andrew Brown Amir Powell and Joseph Pinter.
Being versatile will prove to be the key to the Tigers outdoor track and field success. Both coaches are confident that with the right attitude both teams can have a good amount of success. Both teams will be competing in the Concord University Invitational this Saturday April 6.
