Corley, Parsons Named To All-Valley Track Team
The All-Valley Track Team was announced this week with Magnolia’s Brooks Parsons named as one of the captains. Parsons had a stellar season – winning the OVAC high jump and the West Virginia Class A high jump. He was also a member of the gold-winning Class A state 4×400 relay team and led his team to the state track championship title. Parsons will be heading to Marshall University where he signed to play football.
Named to the first team of the All-Valley Track Team was Tyler Consolidated freshman track star Spencer Corley. Corley, who is a premier distance runner with a specialty in the 1600, took to high jumping this season for the first year and turned in the best jump in the state when he cleared 6’2′ on two occasions.
Heading into the state meet, he was the odds-on favorite but faltered and ended with the bronze metal. He made the All-Valley team in the event with his mark of 6’2.“
