Nephar Durand Holds School Record

Nephar Durand is coming off a great winter season for the Huntington girls’ track and field team.

“Nephar is a great thrower,” head coach Mark Jackson said. “What she doesn’t say with words, she makes up for with her actions in the throwing circle. She is the school record holder in the weight throw. She still has one season (this spring) to go until we have to say goodbye. The way I think she is going to say it is by immortalizing herself in the Huntington record books.”

Winter Girls’ Track Wrap-up

Mark Jackson is pleased with how the winter season went for the Huntington girls’ track and field team.

“The program has made some amazing strides this year,” the head coach said. “They went from living in the shadows of the boys and have made a name for themselves. For the last few years, this has been my goal to get the girls to that level and this is the first bunch to really grasp hold of that dream. They are young and hungry for gold. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. They want more than that. They want records. The girls’ track team is so tightknit that I couldn’t separate them even if I tried. This team is making amazing strides and they won’t stop until they are number one.”

Rivas was All-County during the winter season. “Keily Rivas is a great athlete,” Huntington head coach Mark Jackson said. “She holds the 1500m race-walk record for our school. She was also the first All-American I have had as a coach. Keily is a special individual. One day she will say she is ‘not feeling’ the race-walk and the next day say ‘this is my event and I’m going to win.’”

McDonald is known for his “all-out” style of play and willingness to do whatever he’s asked to help the team win. Henry taught physical education at the high school for four decades and coached football and softball. “As a coach he taught all of his players to be loyal and honest,” Muller said. “Coach Henry is the most loyal person you will ever find here in Huntington.”
