O’Brien leads girls track

 Meghan O’Brien took home three wins as the Granville girls track team swept Whitehall and Hoosic Valley in Schaghticoke April 12. While the boys had winners, they could not overcome Whitehall.

O’Brien won the 100 meters with a time of 13.8 seconds, triple jump with a distance of 33 feet, 5.5 inches, the long jump at 16-5  and was part of the winning girls 4x100m relay along with Danielle Milanese, Taylor Scribner and Brianna Kelly.

The girls took the top five spots in the 100 meters on their way to the team victories; the girls are 2-0.

“Our goal as a team was to come out of this meet 2-0,” Condon said.  “Our girls were willing to enter in whatever event was going to make that happen.”

For the throwers, Chelsea Simpson was second in the shot put with a distance of 25 feet, 7.5 inches and discus at 79-2.

On the boys side Jake Williams won the 400m with a time of 58 seconds flat and was the anchor for the winning 4x400m team along with Karl Palmer, Jon Dieckert, and Dakota White. Mike Fiacco won the 110-meter high hurdles in a time of 16.1 seconds.
