Nation has great year on track field

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — Gavin Nation, a 5th grader at Whitebead Elementary, has just completed a great season at the track.

At the Maysville track meet, he brought home five medals, with gold medal finishes in the 400 meter, 800m, 1600m and the 1600m relay, along with a silver in the long jump.

At the Plainview track meet, he again finished first in the 400m, 800m and 1600m runs.

At the recent track meet in Lindsay, he finished first in the 800m and 1600m runs and brought home a fifth place medal in the 400m and a sixth place medal in the 100m hurdles.

Nation also competed in the ORES 8th grade regional track meet at Tecumseh.

Competing against much older kids, he finished fifth in the 1600m and eighth in the 800m runs there, running his best times of the season.

The times he ran at regionals would place him in 10th place nationally in the 800m among all 5th grade track meets reported, and 17th nationally in the 1600m.

Nation is the son of Scott and Melissa Nation and is coached by Rick Thompson.
