53rd Rockdale Relays


Clockwise from bottom left, Rockdale’s Josh Frei flops in the pit after clearing 5-foot-6 and finishing fourth. At top left, Emily Brinkley heaved the shot put 33-11 to not only claim that event, but she pulled a daily double by taking the discus as well. At top in the middle, Jacob Gerren glances over his shoulder to see where teammate Juan Rubio is in the 1,600-meter run, which Gerren won. At the top right, two of the best weightmen in the state compare notes as Rockdale’s Le’Raven Clark and Navasota’s Rodney Brown congratulate each other after tying for first in the shot. Brown won the discus, with Clark second. Bottom right, Clark threw the shot 51-8 1/2. At the bottom, it’s a who’s who of Rockdale distance men as Jacob Gerren and Juan Rubio flank former Tiger milers Lee Nichols (left) and Tom Drake (right). Drake held the record for the mile for most of the 70s and Nichols still holds the marks (1,600 and 3,200) he set back in 1986.
