The Scottsboro varsity boys and girls track and field teams will send a strong contingent to the state meet after a strong showing in the Class 6A Section 4 Meet.

Scottsboro won the boys sectional title and were the runner-up in the girls sectional during the two-day meet at Fort Payne High School last Friday and Saturday.

Scottsboro won the boys sectional championship with a team score of 122.50, well in front of runner-up Hazel Green (98) and third-place Cullman (93). 

For the SHS Boys, Cooper Atkins was named the Class 6A Boys Section 4 Outstanding Performer. The senior won the 3200-meter run and was part of Scottsboro’s 4x800-meter relay champion while also qualifying for state in the 800- and 1600-meter races.

Atkins’ wins were part of four for Scottsboro in the meet, as Rex Green won the 1600 and Maddox Hamm won the pole vault.

Meanwhile, the SHS girls (90) finished second behind girls sectional champion Fort Payne (203).

Emma Bradford, Ally Campbell, Lauren Paradise and Caroline Sanders all qualified for state in three events for the SHS Girls.

The Class 6A State Meet is scheduled for Thursday through Saturday at the Gulf Shores Sports Complex.

Here are the results for all Scottsboro athletes from the sectional and those who qualified for state in each event.
