2017 Banana Belt Classic: Some New Faces To The Fore

Kallaway Wood squeezes a couple extra inches out of her long jump with aerodynamics and a convincing grimace.

One thing you can count on with the start of each new season is needing to get familiar with some names and faces that were not necessarily all that prominent in previous seasons. 

The Banana Belt Classic used one of the oldest stadiums in the state to showcase a few talents on Saturday that are not exactly new, but their positions at the front the the pack are.

Of course, there was plenty of old-and-familiar along the way, but this article will focus on the new. Still, it's worth mentioning Taryn Ceglowski took honors in the 1600 and 800, Chantae Steele dominated the 400, Nathan Garcia took a win in the 400, Erika Willis won the pole vault even on a bit of an off day, Tanner Norman found high gear winning the 1600, Donovan Williams asserted his presence in the 200, Jequan Hogan took 100 hurdles and high jump titles, Aaron McCoy picked up where he left off at State last spring in the 300 hurdles, Lane Walter reminded folks of why he's one of 2A's most dangerous throwers, Rylee Haynes re-established that Rylee Anderson is not the only dangerous high-jumping Rylee in the state, and Dacian Sullivan got some nice air in winning the long jump.
