When the smoke cleared Friday at Bryan County High School, the Redskin Relays Invitational belonged to the hosts.
The wins were big for the program, coach Blake Nesmith said. They also made a little history.
"I was very pleased with the performance of both squads," Nesmith said. "This is the first time in the four years we've hosted the Redskin Relays that either of our teams has won it, so it was special to sweep it this year."
The girls finished in first place with 134 points, getting first-place finishes from Tiffany Howard (800, 1,600, triple jump), Sierra Newman (long jump) and Allie Peny (discus). Their nearest competitor, South Effingham, had 107 points while third-place McIntosh County Academy scored 91.
On the boys' side, Bryan County had 130 points to edge second-place McIntosh County Academy. The Buccaneers had 126.5 points and third-place South Effingham managed 85.5. The Redskins got first-place performances from Trent Minis (800), Paul Harris (long jump) and the school's 4x400 relay team of Minis, Dashon Dixon, Raekwon Love and Stephon Fennell.
