JV track boys rack up points at district meet

April 16, 2013

Sweetwater High School’s junior varsity boys track team scored 145 points at last week’s district meet to finish just two points out of first place. Individual winners were Deshaun Williams in the long jump, Marquees Jenkins in the 200, Mark Lawrence in the 800, Max Nemir in the 300 hurdles and Kaegan Jeffrey in the discus. Lawrence, Nemir, Jenkins and Max Gomez ran on the first-place 400 relay and Williams, Jenkins, Gomez and Austin Kamer on the 800 relay, while Jenkins, Gomez, Williams and Nemir were on the 400 relay that placed second.

Nemir to compete in four events on Friday

April 16, 2013

Sweetwater High School will be sending several athletes to Pecos this Friday for the area track meet, with the top four in each event advancing to the regional meet in Lubbock.
Sweetwater senior Nick Nemir will be in four events — the long jump, 110-meter hurdles, 300-meter hurdles and the 400-meter relay.
Nemir was third in the first three events at the district meet and the relay he ran on placed fourth. A story in last Friday’s paper incorrectly said that Nemir placed fifth in the long jump and would not advance to the area meet in that event.
