Hill takes bronze at state

YUKON, OK — Pryor pole vaulter Scott Hill left Yukon Saturday with a third-place medal in the pole vault at the Class 5A state track and field meet.

Hill, a senior, set a school record earlier in the year by clearing the bar at 14 feet at a track meet at Miami. He cleared 13 feet, 6 inches at the state meet.

Darren Fowler of Catoosa out-jumped the rest of the field by 13 inches to take the gold medal.

Pryor's Jabar Bennett rallied for a sixth-place finish in the boys 400 meters with a 51.17 lap. Tyler Jackson of Claremore set a 5A state record in the final heat with a 46.99 time.

Bennett and Hill earned all seven team points for the Tigers, who finished 19th out of 28 teams.

Tiger Jaquwan Blaylock bested his preliminary time in the 110-meter hurdles by .07 seconds but finished seventh with a 15.35 mark. He qualified in the fifth spot after prelims.

Teammate Ryan Northcutt placed 13th in the 110 preliminaries with a 16.77 time.

Northcutt bested Blaylock in the 300-meter hurdles, crossing the line in 43.25 for 11th place in prelims.

The boys 4x400-meter relay team comprised of Austin LaFave, Bennett, Blaylock and Lance Livingston finished 13th with a time 3:36.37.

Pryor distance runner Brett Stevens finished ninth in the 3,200 meters (10:31.26) and 12th in the mile (4:44.08)

For the Tiger girls, Courtney Miller earned sixth place in the shot put with a 37-foot, 2-inch thow. Miller's toss earned Pryor its only team points.
