Tigresses win seven events

The Henry/Midland girls returned to the scene where it claimed the Tri-County Conference championship three days earlier to capture a six-team field Thursday at Hall’s Rollie Morris Track.

The Lady Timberducks won eight events with four seconds, beating out the host Lady Devils 150-125. Princeton (110) came in third followed by Putnam County (85), Ohio (12) and DePue (7).

Princeton captured seven firsts, including doubles by Zoe Mead (400, 1:00.8; 200, 28.1) and Phoenix Smallwood (long jump, 17-0; triple jump (35-10). PHS swept the weights with Colbi Schertz claiming the shot put (34-9 1/2) and Nicole Holland the discus (105-10), while Sierra Storm won the pole vault (8-0).

Taylor Clark claimed seconds in both weights for PHS, including a personal best 102-6 in the discus.

“We did a really good job in the field events winning five of six events there. Phoenix did what Phoenix does in the jumps,” PHS coach Pat Hodge said. “Our throwers scored a good number of points for us as well.”

Hall did not win a single event but rather used its depth in securing second place. The Lady Devils gained six, second-place finishes and seven thirds.

The Lady Devils’ depth shined most in the 200 where Brooke Keegan (28.21), Brittany Foster (28.41), Lexi Scarpaci (29.55), Jacquie Wallaert (29.6) and Katie Hoffert (29.77) placed second through sixth.

Brooke Keegan also claimed seconds in the 100 (13.4), 400 (1:04.77) and long jump (15-1 1/2).

DePue’s Amber Walesa placed third in the high jump (4-8), and Ohio’s Samantha Martinez finished fourth in the discus (87-6) .
