Kodie Bogle and Kathryn Webb were point-earning machines for their respective teams this past track and field season.
Bogle, a junior at Gaston, and Webb, a senior at Southside, each competed in four events, with both student-athlete winning the first-place gold every one of those events. Between them, Bogle and Webb took home 30 medals, including 21 gold.
For that standout production and versatility, Bogle and Webb are the Athletes of the Year for the All-Messenger 2024 boys and girls track and field teams.
Bogle broke the state record in the javelin this season while capturing his third straight state championship in the event. His gold medal-winning effort of 184-00 was 10 feet longer than his first-place throw in 2023. Bogle went 8-0 in javelin competition this year and has not lost an Alabama High School Athletic Association-sanctioned javelin event since the Gadsden City Meet No. 4 of the 2023 season. Since the 2021 season, he was won 36 AHSAA-sanctioned javelin events.
Bogle also captured the gold in the high jump and triple jump this season. He also competed in the long jump, in which he won a pair of third-place bronze medals.
Webb (pictured above) earned 15 medals this past season Nine of those medals were gold – three in the high jump, three in the long jump, two in the triple jump and one in the 300-meter hurdles. She was named MVP of the Etowah County Schools meet, where she went 4-for-4 in the long jump, high jump, triple jump and 300-meter hurdles. She signed a volleyball scholarship with Snead State last fall.
