GREENSBORO — Surry Central only had representatives in four events at Saturday’s NCHSAA 2A Track and Field State Championships in Greensboro, but the Golden Eagles still brought a winner back to Dobson.
Junior Daniel Alvarez-Orlachia took gold in the boys’ 800 meter run, finishing the race in 1:57.51, besting second-place Jaylor Drayton from the Durham School of the Arts by six-hundredths of a second. This is the second state title of the year for Alvarez-Orlachia, who also won the boys’ 1,000-meter run indoor track event back in February.
The Eagles nearly had two state champions on Saturday. Tyler Fitzgerald finished second in the boys’ pole vault, finishing right behind Bunker Hill’s Jon Ramsey.
