Lavin leads way in track

R ebecca Lavin had a banner day for the girl’s track team, but it wasn’t enough to prevent the team from falling to Salem and host Corinth on Tuesday afternoon.

Lavin won three events for the Railroaders, Kassi VanGuilder cleared more than four and a half feet to win the girl’s high jump, and Caitlyn Sanford turned in a strong all-around performance, with three third-place finishes.

Lavin, who has emerged as the team’s most consistent performer, dominated the girls 800 meter run, besting the field by more than four seconds with a time of 2:44.10.

She also won the long jump and triple jump. Sanford wasn’t far behind in both of those events, finishing in third place. She also cleared more than four feet in the girl’s high jump for her third-place finish.

Also placing for the girls were Emily Harker who finished second in the 100 meter hurdles and Olivia Sweeney who finished third in the discus.

The boys were paced by Zach Diekel who placed first in the shot put and discus.

Dave Rich continued his domination of the pole vault, clearing more than 11 ½ feet. He has won the pole vault in every dual meet this season. He also finished second in the 110 meter hurdles.

Josh Hoagland placed in three events, finishing second in the 100 meters, third in the 200 and third in the discus.

Tyler Sweenor finished third in the 400-meter hurdles and pole vault.

Also placing for Whitehall were Codie Bascue (second in the 200 meters), Brandon Steves (third in the 400 meters), and Justin Hoagland (second in the high jump).

As a team, Salem swept the boys meet. Whitehall finished 0-2. Corinth swept the girls meet.
