Barton County 2004 Olympic
Track & Field Medal Count v. the World

Soon to be Cougars show prowess at Kansas State Track Meet
Future Barton County Community College track and field stars showed their abilities at the Kansas State High School Activities Association State Championships this past weekend in Wichita. Seven Barton County signees combined to win 5 events and place in a total of 14 events.

Barton women dominating on way to 6th straight NJCAA title; 16th overall
The Barton County Community College women’s track team had little trouble in collecting its 6th consecutive NJCAA National Outdoor Track and Field title this past week. The Cougars dominated the field, rolling up 211 points its way to winning by more than 100 points on the campus of South Plains College in Levelland, Texas. The Cougars more than doubled their closest foe – Central Arizona – which finished with 95.5 points. Host South Plains finished 3rd with 89 points.
The 6 straight titles moves the current Barton streak to within one of the all-time mark of 7 straight NJCAA Women’s Outdoor titles set by Barton County from 1990-96. The Cougars have won 16 NJCAA Women’s Outdoor titles, including 13 of the last 16. No other school has more than 4 titles to its credit.

Streak ends for Barton County men; Cougars 3rd at NJCAA Outdoor meet
The Barton County Community College men’s track team just didn’t quite have it in the tank this time around. After pulling out the national title the past 2 years in the final event of the NJCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Levelland, Texas, Barton didn’t have that opportunity this year as Central Arizona College rolled to its 1st title since 1996 and the 2nd in school history. Central Arizona finished with 158 points while the Cougars took 3rd with 107 points. Barton just missed 2nd place as host South Plains College edged the Cougars with 109 for the runner-up spot.
The string of 7 consecutive titles ends for the Cougars – the 2nd longest streak in NJCAA history. Blinn College won a record 9 straight NJCAA Outdoor titles from 1987-1995. Ironically, Central Arizona ended that streak as well. Odessa College won 6 straight Outdoor titles from 1981-1986 before Blinn won its 9 straight.

Cougar men have tough task in defending NJCAA title yet again
It’s gotten a bit tougher each of the last several years. In fact, it wasn’t until the final race of the NJCAA National Outdoor Track and Field Championships last year that the Barton County Community College men’s track team locked up its 7th straight outdoor title. The season before it went down to the wire as well. It’s not going to get any easier for the Cougars and coach Lyles Lashley as they chase Blinn College’s record of 9 straight titles. In fact, this may be the biggest hill to climb yet for the Barton men’s team as they prepare to defend their title next week on the campus of South Plains College in Levelland, Texas. The meet starts Monday and finishes on Wednesday.

Barton women favored to win 6th straight NJCAA Outdoor title

And once again it was Barton County reaping those rewards at the conclusion of the meet. The Cougars made an improbable comeback to make it 8 straight by the slimmest of margins Saturday in Charleston, Ill., on the campus of Eastern Illinois University.

Paradise Valley (Ariz) was a distant 3rd with 73 points.

Barton women dominate field to win 8th straight NJCAA Indoor title
The Barton County Community College women’s track and field team just simply took care of business.

No, this year the Cougar women simply dominated the field at the NJCAA National Indoor Track and Field Championships in Charleston, Ill. on the campus of Eastern Illinois. Barton nearly doubled the 2nd place team as the Cougars wracked up 199.5 points during the 2-day event while runner-up Essex finished with an even 100. Cloud County was a distant 3rd with 68.

Moore officially part of women’s 200m; 5 ex Cougars to run in race
It’s now official. LaShauntea Moore’s wait is over. The Barton County Community College graduate knows she will indeed be a part of the women’s 200m dash in just less than a week at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece. Moore, who was already in Athens as part of the USA’s 4x100m relay pool, had been waiting word on Torri Edwards’ appeal. Edwards, who took 3rd in the US Olympic Trials to Moore’s 4th place, had been banned for 2 years for testing positive for the stimulant nikethamide in April. She appealed that ban but on Tuesday the international Court of Arbitration for Sport came down with its ruling, denying Edwards her spot on the team and making way for Moore to join some familiar faces in the women’s 200m. In fact, 5 former Barton County track stars will now compete in the race. In addition to Moore, Barton will have Veronica Campbell, Aleen Bailey, Beverly McDonald – all from Jamaica – and Laverne Jones (Virgin Islands) in the event that begins Monday.

Barton Jumpers of 2002 reunite in Athens for 2004 Summer Olympics
It was a hot Texas day in mid May. The final day of the 2002 NJCAA National Track and Field meet in Odessa. With the time slipping past noon three Barton County Community College jumpers were battling it out for the triple jump gold medal at the meet. It was the same three that battled a couple days earlier in the long jump. When it was over Leevan Sands had captured the triple jump for Barton, doing so with a school record jump of 57-5. Not far behind Sands was LeJuan Simon at 57-0.75 for the silver. John Moffitt took 3rd for the Cougars. That was the final time the 3 would jump together as part of the Barton County track and field team. It would not, however, be the last time they competed with and against each other. Over the past 2 years the trio battled several times in the toughest NCAA Division I track conference in the nation with Sands going to Auburn and Moffitt and Simon to LSU. Now all 3 will line up and jump in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. Two of the trio will begin the quest for an Olympic medal Friday with the triple jump. Sands and Simon will participate in the event. All 3 will jump in the long jump, which gets started Aug. 24.

Davis makes return trip to Olympics; medal on the mind this time around
Perhaps a visit to the campus of Barton County Community College every four years is now in order for Walter Davis. It seems to be a good formula for former track and field star for the Cougars – as long as it comes in an Olympic year. Davis graduated from Barton in the Spring of 2000, later that year he was in Sydney triple jumping for the United States in the 2000 Summer Olympic Games. That was the last time Davis was on campus until this February. Davis was inducted into the Cougar Sports Hall of Fame as a member of the 2004 class. And, coincidently, Davis finds himself jumping in the Olympics once again. Perhaps a return visit in 2008 is in order.

Former Cougars in Athens numbers 12; 3rd highest among all colleges

The Cougars will have 5 former stars representing the USA in the Olympics, 4 from Jamaica, 1 from each the Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, and the Virgin Islands.
