KINGMAN - The schedule might have said at Lee Williams and the stadium might have been the home of the Volunteers, but Lee Williams High's first-ever home track meet Thursday afternoon certainly had a Kingman High feel to it.

While the Bulldogs took the top honors for both boys and girls over LWHS and River Valley, it was the neighbor helping neighbor spirit that showed it wasn't one school against another. Instead, it was a community coming together to help the new neighbors on the block host a house warming party.

"(LWHS) Coach (Joan) Abraham hasn't done this before and we've done this a bunch of times," said KHS coach Rob York. "We know how it goes. We know how hard it is to find people to come out and help run events and help run the show."

On Thursday, York was in the press box running a computer program to score different events, the same job he had a few weeks ago when KHS hosted a multiple. On the track, KHS assistant coaches Ron Anthony and Janelle Rodes where making sure everything ran smoothly with Anthony shooting the gun to start the race, and Rodes making sure runners were in the right lanes.

"We could not have done it without them," Abraham said. "They knew what they were doing and hopefully we learned from them. They have been a huge help and they are encouraging our kids and cheering for them when they run by. A lot of our kids know those kids."

However, Thursday's meet didn't go off without some glitches. The timing system went down in the middle of a race, which caused race officials to get creative by timing races with stopwatches and cell phone apps.

"We had problems but I think it went well. I think the kids had a good time," Abraham said.

Judging by the success displayed by LWHS, it appears Abraham was right. The Volunteers picked up five first-place finishes for the first time in school history as the girls team finished second with 40 points behind KHS' 91 points.

"First home varsity meet and we get some first place finishes," Abraham said. "Not bad."

LWHS' Megan Barnes took the 200 meters in 29.59, besting second place KHS junior Rachyle Lawson's 30.39. The girls 4x100 team of McKinzie Smario, Brianna Colbaugh, Marli Lauck and Alexis Hoffman won with a time of 55.58, and Smario took first in the high jump and long jump. Giancarlo Narvarte won the high jump.

Paulina Delgado led KHS with first place finishes in the 100 meters, 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles and the triple jump. Darian Kamin took first in the 200 meters and 300 hurdles while Amber Tackett placed first in the shot put and discus.
