South - Eaton Winners at Preble County Meet
J. C. Tilton
The TVS boys team continued their winning ways with a victory over their county rivals. The team seems to be hitting it's stride with 8 first place finishes. Joe Maleski struck twice, winning both the 100m and 200m dashes. Jesse Simpson and JT Stone combined for 1st and 2nd finishes in both the discus and the shot, it was Simpson who won the shot put and Stone turned around and won the discus. Taulbee of TVS finished 1st in both the 800m and 1600m run. Districts are right around the corner so the team is peaking at the right time. Eaton girls had first place, edging out TVS by just 3 points. Coach Mabry of TVS was eyeing individual performances since the South girls has no distance runners and no hurdlers. So it was impressive that in the remaining events the team was strong enough to come so close to a victory. Kate Ervin had another impressive outing for South, winning both the shot and discus. Team finishes Boys - TVS 1st 119, TCN 2nd 84.5, Eaton 3rd 83, PS 4th 57.5 NT 5th 9. Girls - Eaton 1st 108.5, TVS 2nd 105.5, PS 3rd 69, 4th(tie) TCN NT 35.
North boys managed a second place finish. The teams premier distance runner, Nathan Wirrig was ill for the first part of the season and is easing back into competition. He led North to a 1-2-3 finish in the 3200m run, beating his teammate Lane Hart by a respectable 35 seconds. North also had a trifecta in the high jump. McAdams and Drew Heindl both jumped 5'10" and AJ Summers was right behind with a jump of 5'8". The TCN girls finished in a tie for 4th. The team lost a distance runner from last season who decided not to participate this spring, but freshman Abbie Schlater stepped up and was the sole first place finisher for the North girls in the 1600m run. Jessica McWhinney of Trail also had an impressive performance winning both the 100m and 300m hurdle events.
