Four athletes place in multiple events

M organ Winters was one of four Whitehall athletes to place in multiple events at an indoor track meet held Sunday at Williams College.

Winters finished third in the girls’ long jump and second in the triple jump. She also won the girls’ freshman 55-meter dash, trimming more than a quarter second off her season best.

Her jump of nearly 28 feet in the triple jump was more than two feet better that her season best.

Haley Wiskoski and Abby Dickinson placed in two events for Whitehall.

Dickinson finished sixth in the girls’ high jump, clearing four feet, and fifth in the shot put event, throwing a season best 25 feet, 9.5 inches.

Wiskoski finished fifth in the triple jump and third in girls’ freshman 55 meter hurdles.

Ashley Millet also fared well for Whitehall, throwing the shot put more than 24 feet and placing seventh.

David Greenough led the boys, clearing 5 feet, 3 inches in the boys’ high jump, good for second place. He also finished fifth in the triple jump with a leap just shy of 33 feet.

Also competing were Cullen Flynn, who cleared seven feet in the boys’ pole vault, Michael Mattison who finished the 1600 meter run in less than seven minutes, Dylan Morrill and Andreas Meyer Giesow.

The team will take a week off from competition before the league championships on Jan. 27.
