Tyynismaa Takes Charge at Jesse Owens! Highlights From the Meet!

Jesse Owens is the single largest meet in Alabama and one of the largest events in the southeast.  Each year several thousand athletes head to our state course to compete amongst the mounds.

Catholic-Montgomery's Amaris Tyynismaa and McGill-Toolen's Grace Jensen ran neck and neck for much of the race.  Tyynismaa who holds the course record struggled last year to hit the times we had come to expect from her.  It looks like she is back folks...  17:50 for the win against one of the most talented Gold fields I can remember.  Grace Jensen who was the favorite heading in to Jesse Owens took second running 18:07.

Boys Gold


Homewood's Will Stone entered the race as the favorite but would face competition throughout the course from Vestavia's James Sweeney.  The two both ran PR's on the course today with Stone taking the win in 15:22 besting Sweeney by only 3 seconds.

Girls Silver
