The Lebanon High School track and field team fared well at the Ozark Conference tournament that was held on Wednesday at West Plains High School.

Overall, the boys' and girls' team both took 4th place in their respective divisions with the team having two Ozark Conference champions altogether.

The boys' team had an overall score of 88 with Waynesville winning the boys' championship with a 122.5. The girls' team had an overall score of 98 with Kickapoo finishing in first with 140 points.

On the boys' side, senior Cameron Abel continues to put on a show in the shot put event, winning the Ozark Conference championship with ease, throwing a 47-09.00.

"Cameron keeps rolling along doing enough to win meets," head track coach Shane Rebmann mentioned. "He has had some ups and downs in terms of his performances, but that is to be expected. Coach (Garett) Wade is doing a great job helping him learn to prepare for the big meets that are coming up in the next few weeks."

Also earning 1st team All-Ozark Conference were Tanner Roy (2nd place high jump), Devin Denigan (2nd place Discus), and the 4x800 meter relay team of Zach Jamieson, Angel Pedrosa-Vasquez, Luis Pedrosa-Vasquez, and Manny Del-Rio Vasquez.

"I'm very proud of Tanner," Rebmann said. "He is so competitive and really had to fight today. He cleared two or three heights today on his final attempt to keep him in position to place high."

Derek Tucker earned 2nd team All-Ozark Conference in the discus with a third-place finish. Rebmann had high praise for both Tucker and Denigan.

"These two are really dominating in the discus right now," he said. "I don't know of another school in our area that has two guys this good.”
