White County girls, Commerce boys litter 10th Annual Invite leaderboards

At East Jackson High School in Commerce over the weekend, it was the White County girls and Commerce boys that stole the show at the 10th Annual Eagle Invitational.

Of our local programs, Commerce, Tallulah Falls, and White County all took part. Tons of individuals found great success, but the White County Lady Warriors had plenty of individual 1st-place finishers in their respective events, as did the Commerce Tigers. White County girls won the meet, while TFS girls (7th) and Commerce (9th) finished accordingly. The boys saw Commerce finish as runner-up, White County 4th, and Tallulah Falls 9th.


The White County girls won the 4×400 meter relay by 10 seconds over East Jackson, and by 6 seconds over Cherokee Bluff in the distance medley relay.

Individuals who won gold included Rachel Lovell (High Jump), Ellie Gearing (Triple Jump), Ella Blair (Pole Vault), and Evelyn Vanderbunt (Shot Put).


The Tigers who earned the top spot in their events included JJ Morris (800 meter) by .05 seconds over the 2nd place finisher, Brandon Martin (3200 meter) by 14 seconds over Chestatee’s Luke Gaddis, and Shannon Segars (Long Jump & Triple Jump).
