Cougars FROM PAGE B~0 Price was only a freshman in 2010 when he finished second in the 100 meters, timed in 11:03. In that same meet, he was second in the 200 meters, clocking a 21.84 in that sprint. Jefferson won the team champi- onship. Burcham fired onto the scene the next year as a sophomore. While Price's sophomore season brought him twin state titles in both the 100 (11.15) and the 200 (22.11),it was Burcham winning three distance races -- the 800 in 1:54.01, the 1600 in 4:08.80 and the 3200 in 9:11:29. Jefferson won the team champi- onship. Just last year when both run- ners were juniors, Price repeated his sprint victories, taking the 100 in 10.66 and the 200 in 21.67. Bur- cham repeated his thr~ individual wins from the year before by run- ning another~ 1:54.01 in the 800, taking the 1600 by a large margin with his dmeOf 4:08.91 and then running away from the field in the 3200 and recording a winning time of 8:57.73. Jefferson won its third straight team championship. The Cougars have flourished in recent years in the 4x100 relay with Price mostly running the an- chor leg. There will be no points in that event this year because Jeffer- son was guilty of a false start in the Region II meet and disqualified. Should the Knights or Hedg- esville or one of the other three Regional winners (Parkersburg, Greenbrier East or Winfield) disrupt Jefferson's championship string, the king-breaker will eam their laurels.
