REGION I-3A TRACK DAY 1: Clyde enjoys double gold on first day of meet

ABILENE — While there is still much to be decided in the Region I-3A meet at Abilene Christian University, at least two Clyde Bulldogs can rest assured that their tickets to Austin have already been punched. 

Payton Phillips, a sophomore girls long jumper and Jacob Roberts, a senior boys high jumper, both claimed regional gold on Friday, clinching a berth in the UIL State Track and Field Meet on May 6-8 at Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin. 

The pair was part of a group of several athletes from the Big Country Preps coverage area to lock up trips to state. Wall’s Tate Williams and Brock’s Nathan Jones had already finished 1-2 in the boys’ shotput  earlier in the day, shortly after Kylee Willis of Breckenridge had claimed silver in the girls high jump.
