KINGSPORT — Porter Bradley and Nate Smith were phenomenal and they made a gigantic statement.
Going up against much bigger schools like Ross Robinson, John Sevier, Liberty Bell and Vance, the two T.A. Dugger runners stood out with first- and third-place finishes in the Middle 8 Conference meet on an extremely hot day at Domtar Park.
Bradley won the boys championship with an impressive time of 8:58 while Smith was right behind with a time of 9:11.
