The Big Country was well-represented by athletes at the first day of the UIL state track and field meet in Austin on Friday. Cross Plains senior Creed Goode headlined the day by winning two gold medals -- first in the Class A boys' high jump, and then in the long jump.

Goode jumped 6 feet, 3 inches to claim gold in the high jump. He followed that with a new Class A boys' long jump record with a leap of 22 feet, 8 inches.

Early's Trinity Tomlinson won the gold in the Class 3A girls' high jump event on Friday morning. Tomlinson earned the silver in 2017 as a freshman, and cleared 5 feet, 7 inches to take first place in her sophomore year.

Also from the area, Roby's Jessy Villagomez won silver in the Class A boys' shot put with a throw of 50 feet, 7 inches. Aspermont's Karter Morris finished with bronze on his throw of 50 feet, 5 inches.

Six other Big Country athletes earned a spot on the medal stand with five other bronze medalists. They are Trent's Baylee Pickens (Class A girls' 3200M), Merkel's Zach Owens (Class 3A boys' long jump), Benjamin's Myca Flowers (Class A girls' high jump), Coleman's Shiean Walters (Class 3A girls' 400M), and Robert Lee's Margo Mendoza (Class A girls' discus).
