CLEWISTON -- The Clewiston High School track and field teams came out on top at the 2021 Clewiston Invitational on April 1.

Individually, the boys team finished first in their category with 159 points and the girls team finished second in theirs with 83 points. Head coach Jay Similien credits both preparation of the student-athletes for the success as well as staff at CHS for putting on the event.

 “We were blessed to have had favorable weather in order to host our invitational,” Similien said. “Our coaching team put in many hours to plan and prepare for own home track meet. We appreciate the support from our superintendent, athletic director, CHS Administration, and our famous hurdle crew.”

“ We were able to compete in front of our home crowd for our student-athletes, community, and the future with the support from our community and sponsors,” continued Similien. “It felt like old times and we see the future is bright for this program.”

COVID-19 shutdown the Clewiston Invitational last year, but Similien says his goal is to host an invitational every year. Immokalee, Sebring, Lake Wales, Moore Haven, Lake Placid, and LaBelle all competed in the event this year.

The Tigers also won the Antone Smith’s MuckCity Fastest competition back on March 25, with the boys team dominating with 207 points. Senior Oran Singleton earned the MuckCity Fastest award with 10.96 in the 100m dash.

Next the Tigers travel to Moore Haven to compete in the Moore Haven Last Chance Mini-Meet on April 8.
