SAN ANGELO — Peyton Hinckley of Blackwell cleared 6-1 at the Region II-1A track meet Saturday in the boys high jump to win his event and earn a state berth.
Hinckley had to win a jump-off with Sterling City’s Michael McGuire, who also cleared the bar at 6-1, in order to claim the regional gold medal.
Hinckley will be the only boy from Blackwell to advance to the state meet although the Hornets had a handful of other athletes who competed this weekend.
Highland also had several athletes who competed at the Region II-1A track meet this weekend. However, none of them were able to advance.
A complete listing of all results for both schools will be in Tuesday’s paper.
