SIKESTON -- The Sikeston junior high track team recently finished it's season with both the boys and girls squads ending successfully.

The boys finished first in the SEMO North Conference with the girls taking third.

"I think we had a very successful season," junior varsity track coach Jon Johnson said. "Our boys only finished out of first one time all season.

"Our girls battled very hard and were competing very tough at the end of the season. They came back and beat a few teams that had beat them earlier in the season and I was very proud of them for that. There are a lot of strong athletes at this level."

One particular athlete was Tyler McClinton. McClinton set a new junior varsity triple jump record at the conference meet with a jump of 40-feet, six inches. He also had the best high jump and triple jump of the season as well.

The best times and distances from each event in the 2011 season are as followed.
