MJ's Shea, Central's Elrod -
Mt. Juliet High's Cole Shea and Wilson Central's John Elrod have been named Class AAA all-state in track & field by the Tennessee Sport Writers Association.
As a junior, Shea recorded a 14-6 effort to win the Class AAA state championship in the pole vault at Middle Tennessee State's Dean A. Hayes Stadium back in May -- finishing six inches ahead of a pair of Brentwood High vaulters.
Shea is the first Wilson County athlete to bring home an individual track & field state championship in recorded TSSAA history.
Elrod, a member of Central's 2017 graduating class, placed third in the 1,600 meters with a time of 4:22.56.
