    BARDSTOWN — Kiara Austin put last season to rest with a stellar performance during Tuesday’s Class 1-A, Region 3 Meet at Bardstown.

    Austin won 100-meter hurdles, long jump and triple jump and helped lead Fort Knox to victory in the 1,600 relay. She set personal records of 17 feet, 6 inches in the long jump, 36-07 in the triple and 15.11 seconds in the 100 hurdles.

    “My fastball wasn’t popping like it usually does, but I was trying to keep them off-balance,” Wilson said. “I had to mix it up. They hit the ball hard, but right at people.”
