COUNTRY CLUB HILLS | After waiting nearly 50 years for its first team title in the South Suburban Conference last season, T.F. North didn't have to wait another 50 years for another.

The Meteors held on for the 2014 South Suburban Blue title at Hillcrest and were bolstered by Adonis Barnes who won the 110 and 300 hurdles and Thomas Tate who won the triple jump. The Meteors (125) finished first in the team competition while T.F. South (64) finished fifth. Rebel Jareyl Stone led T.F. South with a first-place finish in the long jump.

"I'm happy I got first place, but I didn't do as good as I should have," Tate said. "I wanted to PR, but I'm glad I could just get first place. We have a good team this year. I was just happy I could contribute to our win."

T.F. North won three of the four team relays, but the Meteors were disqualified after the 1,600 relay when some runners were involved in a minor scuffle near the finish line. Barnes' time of 14.58 captured first in the 110 hurdles, but he will be unable to run the 110 at sectionals because graduation is the same day.

"I just thank my coaches for all the training over the years," Barnes said. "It showed on the track today. I'm going to miss the 110, but 300 wise, I plan to at least qualify for state and hopefully PR."

Jareyl Stone also had a third-place finish in the 110 hurdles to go along with his first place distance of 19-9 in the long jump. Adam Kessler took second place for T.F. South in the shot put with a personal record of 52-3. Tremayne Broy placed second for the Rebels in both the 1,600 and 800 meter runs.

"It wasn't my best and I could have did better," Stone said. "The competition made me jump a little better than what I was doing in my early jumps. I jumped a 20-10 last week, and I'm looking for a 21."

Broy, a senior, was looking for a first-place, but was happy with how the day ended. His 2:07 was good enough for second in the 800 meters.

"I felt good going into the races," Broy said. "My times are getting a lot better. I'm hoping to make it to state this year for my senior year. I want to hit that 1:57 mark and go to state."
