Freshmen strong for girls in opener

S o what will Bri Kelly and fellow freshmen do for an encore?

Kelly, a sprinter at Granville High School, started her high school career by winning the 100 meters, 200 meters and taking part in the winning 4×100-meter relay team April 3. The Horde beat Corinth, 66-65, lost to Tamarac, 71-69, and defeated the Waldorf School, 113-7.

“Bri had a great first meet,” coach Jay Condon said. “She is going to get better as the season goes on.  Having her run 300s all indoor season is paying off as she had a PR in 100m today.”

Kelly wasn’t the only freshman winner for the Horde. Hannah Jones took the 800 and Emily Leavey won the 100-meter hurdles.

“Hannah had a nice race and it is a great starting point for her for the outdoor season.”  Condon said. “She is coming off a very good indoor season and should do well in the 800m this season.”

Senior Alicia Clark won both her events, taking the 1,500- and 3,000-meter races. Sophomore Heather Chapman won the shot and the discus.

The boys team went one better, sweeping its quad meet and taking the top four places in the 100 meters with all four runners breaking 11.8 seconds. Granville won all the sprint and sprint hurdle events. Kody Bardin won the 100 and 200 and anchored the winning 4×100-meter relay team. Devin Buxton won the long jump and triple jump.

“We have a lot of pride in the sprint events and our boys and girls showed it today” Condon said.

“We had a chance today to break two school records in the boys sprint events — 4×100-meter relay and the 100 meters. We came very close in both.”

Granville beat Corinth, 70-57, Tamarac, 76-45, and Waldorf, 93-6.

Kelly won the 100 in 13.16, Taylor Scribner was third, Amy Rohrman fourth and Katarina Thomas sixth. Kelly won the 200 in 28.67 with Thomas right behind her. Jones finished the 800 in 2:41.5, with Danielle Thomas fourth and Christina Rice fifth.

Clark finished the 1,500 meters in 5:03.10 and the 3,000 in 10:41.3. Leavey’s 100-meter hurdles time was 19.51, and the 4×100 team of Rohrman, Katarina Thomas, Kelly and Scribner finished in 54.37.

The 4×400 relay of Taylor Birchmore, Andrea Kibling, Danielle Thomas and Hannah Jones was second.

Leavey tied for third in the high jump, and Katarina Thomas was tied for sixth. Rohrman won the long jump at 13 feet, 8.5 inches. Kibling was second in the triple jump and Rohrman was third.

Chapman’s shot put was 31 feet 5 inches, and her discus was 88-1. Christina Filer was third in the shot put, Rachel Kristoff fifth and Scribner sixth. Kristoff was second in the discus and Filer was fifth.

Kody Bardin won the 100 meters at 11.42, followed by Cameron Gallagher (11.64) and Gabe Pratt and Matthew Decker, both at 11.71. Bardin finished the 200 in 24.36. Devin Buxton was fourth and Taylor Davidson fifth.

Decker won the 400 in 58.9 with Ryan Skidmore fifth. Ryan Dalaba was sixth in the 3,200 meters.

Gallagher won the 110-meter hurdles, with Buxton third and Pratt sixth. Stephen Cohan won the 400 meters at 1:10.59, with Pratt second and Thomas fifth.

Gallagher, Pratt, Decker and Bardin won the 4×100-meter relay. Granville was second in the 4×400 and third in the 4×800. Gallagher tied for third in the high jump.
