Tallulah Academy got first-place performances from two athletes, and second-place efforts from two others, but it wasn’t quite enough to win Thursday’s Riverfield Invitational. The Trojans totaled 52 points, six behind meet winner Chamberlain-Hunt.

Neil Watkins won the 300-meter hurdles with a time of 41.01 seconds and Tandon Baker won the shot put with a throw of 42 feet, 8 inches. Cameron Machen was second in the discus and Cody Petty was second in the 200-meter dash.

In the girls’ meet, Tallulah’s Katie Book won the 1,600-meter run and the 300-meter hurdles, while Megan Givens won the 800-meter run.
