BRISTOL, Va. — Union boys track did it again.

The Bears outdistanced Ridgeview 132.5-104 Wednesday at Virginia High to claim its fourth straight Region 2D championship.

Tazewell (60 points), Wise Central (59) and Virginia High (53) rounded out the top five boys squads.

Malachi Jenkins was the big point producer for Union, winning the high jump with a jump of 6-0 and taking third in the 110 and 300 hurdles, fifth in the long jump and seventh in the triple jump.

“I know I can do better and improve for state,” Jenkins said.

Improving the high jump is Jenkins’ top goal for the VHSL Class 2 championships, which are scheduled for the weekend of June 3-4 at James Madison University.

Union also got big numbers from Dorian Almer, who won the 3,200 and finished third in the 1,600, and Isaiah Pennington, who took a victory in the 800.



Union senior Keyandre Davis won the Region 2D shot put championship and placed second in the regional discus competition. 



Keyandre Davis also gave Union big points.

The senior, who won the state shot put title in the winter during the indoor track season, took the regional championship in the shot with a throw of 50-8. He finished second in the discus.

Throwing in the winter season helped prepare him for the spring outdoor season, Davis said.

“What you’ve learned from indoor, you can just take it to the outdoor season, and it’s just nice and smooth,” Davis said.

BATTLE GIRLS TAKE REGION CROWN

John Battle, which got wins from Olivia Stevens in the 400 and Jada Samuel in the 400 hurdles, used balanced scoring to win the girls regional title with 120 points.

Ridgeview finished second with 110 points, followed by Tazewell (86), Lee High (56) and Virginia High (51).
