Polk County's Nathaniel Rhein

Wolverines get first experience of season at JDL Fast Track

Polk County indoor track and field athletes got their first look Friday at JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem.

A group of Wolverines competed in the H.O.T. Santa meet at JDL, site of the state 2A/1A championship meet in February. Athletes from around the state competed in the annual meet.

Polk had two top-three efforts. Maggie McCammon placed third in the high jump with a mark of 4-6 while Nathaniel Rhein took third in the 55-meter hurdles with a time of 8.60. Rhein continues to threaten one of the oldest marks in Polk County’s record book, the 55-meter hurdle standard of 8.28 set in 1994-94 by Brooks Lookadoo.

Polk County athletes are slated to be back in action on Wednesday at the 13th annual Reindeer Games, set to begin at 4 p.m. in G.M. Tennant Stadium.
