It was another successful season for Landrum athletics this spring.
The Cardinals made a push deep into the playoffs in both baseball and softball. The boys’ soccer team advanced to the second round of the playoffs.
The jewel for the spring, however, was the boys’ track team. The Cardinals brought home a state title in track led by state champions Cole McDowell and the 4×800 team made up of Kenneth Human, Levi Wedde, Danny Bruce and Chris Downey. Human led the charge for the Cardinals, scoring 24 points.
McDowell, Human, Wedde, Bruce and Downey all earned All-State honors.
The girls’ track team finished seventh at the state meet. Sarah Cash and Shelby Morris earned All-State honors.
The baseball team had one All-State athlete. Shortstop Kaleb Kuykendall won the distinction with his smooth glove and strong arm.
The softball team had two All-State recipients. Junior pitcher Jordan Farmer and impossible-to-get-out junior catcher Bre Cuff took home the prize.
All-Region honors in boys track went to McDowell, Human, Wedde, Bruce, Downey, Hunter Conley, Derek Belue, Cy Johnson, Peyton McCarter, Austin Brown, Brandon Cannon and JoJo Wilkins. All-Region in girls’ track were Savanna LaPan, Morris and Kelsey Spicer.
All-Region players in baseball were Kuykendall, Matt Pruitt, Joseph Corn and Thomas Rabatie. All-Region softball athletes were Farmer, Cuff, Taylor Jenkins and Skylar Henderson.
J.J. Carruth, who signed to run cross country at Presbyterian College, earned All-Region honors in golf. Harry Reed was named to the All Region team in tennis, Jon Perry in boys’ soccer and Leah Smith in girls’ soccer.
