The Tigers track teams traveled to Lowndes on April 2, where the boys’ team placed third and the girls finished fourth out of 18 teams competing in the Harmon Invitational.
Jahmel Smith broke the school’s two-mile record with a time of 10:32 seconds, according to track coach DeAndre Davis.
"He broke the record that was recorded back in 1992," Davis said. "The kids have been working very hard the last couple of months. This team is still young with only three seniors."
Davis said distance coach Brian Williams should be given the credit for getting the kids ready for the long runs with several practice sessions held during the past few weeks.
"We have six kids running under five minutes in the mile," Davis said.
The Tigers’ track squads will
compete in Statesboro today in the Statesboro Relays.
Region 3-AAAAA preliminaries begin next Thursday at 1 p.m. and the BI team will host its first region-championship meet this season.
