Union Grove junior Chuck McConville will compete for the shot put title at the GHSA state finals.
Last week, female athletes from Henry County won a few medals at the GHSA Girls’ Track and Field State Championships in Albany.

Starting Thursday, many male athletes will try to do the same thing during the boys’ finals in Jefferson.

In Class AAAAA, Union Grove’s Trent Hill and Chuck McConville could have a significant showing in the discus and shot put competition.

At sectionals, Hill finished first in discus and fourth in shot put.

Meanwhile, McConville placed second in both events.

Also teammate Conner Dalrymple finished third in the 3200-meter run and seventh in the 1600.

Caleb Ham captured fifth in the triple jump and the 4x400 team had the same result in its race.

In Class AAAA where most of county’s teams compete, the relays could be decided between Stockbridge and Dutchtown.

At sectionals in Macon, the Bulldogs finished first and second in the 4x100 and 4x400 relays, respectively.

The Tigers were right on their heels for second place in both events.

Stockbridge’s Brandon Symonette had the highest individual finish between the schools, placing third in the triple jump.

From Eagle’s Landing, Devin Dixon is hoping to return with medals from the 800 and 1600 runs.

Dixon finished first in the 1600 and second in the 800 last month.

Gino Fabrezio finished second in the discus and Andrew Omoregbe captured third in the high jump.

Warren Wright finished fourth in the 110 hurdles.

Woodland’s Malcolm Walker will try to improve on his fourth-place finish in the 400 at sectionals.

Down in Class AAA, Henry County appears ready to collect points in the overall standings.

Expect K’Lan Harris to be atop the standings in the 200, 400 and long jump.

Last month at sectionals, Harris finished first in the 400 and long jump and second in the 200.

Devaughnte Mosley captured third in the high jump.

The Warhawks’ 4x400 and 4x100 teams finished first and third, respectively.

In Class A, the ELCA Chargers hope to finish first overall like the girls’ team did last week.

Brad Moore will try to duplicate his first-place finish in the high jump at sectionals.

After capturing second in the discus and shot put last month, Andrew Williams will try to repeat or better his performance in those events.
