Raptors Fourth at Scott Hartman

Track & field enthusiasts in middle Tennessee have probably been asking, "Where did that guy come from?" in reference to Ravenwood's Elijah Dryer.  Even though he is a senior, this is his first year running track for the Raptors, although you certainly can't tell based on his marks.  He ran a smoking 10.92 in the 100m prelims, the fastest time of the meet and the fastest for a Ravenwood athlete since 2010 (Joachim DeBock).  He also anchored the 4x100m relay team to its victory.  Senior Tim Cody won the 400m dash and junior Jack Dang became the first Raptor to clock a sub 2:00 800m since state champion Matthew Rainey in 2015, running 1:59.17.  Here are all the scorers:

high jump - Ian Brown (6th)
shot put - Gabriel Sleenhof (5th)
4x800m relay - David Story, Trevon Miller, Everett Jackson, Blake Brown (7th)
100m - Elijah Dryer (2nd)
