Track team wraps up season

D avid Greenough paced the boys indoor track team with a pair of top five finishes at the Division IV, Section II Championships, held Sunday at SUNY Albany.

Greenough finished in a three-way tie for fourth place in the boy’s high jump, clearing 5 feet, 4 inches, and fifth in the boy’s triple jump, recording a jump just under 35 feet.

Teammate Andreas Meyer-Giesow finished just off the podium in seventh place in the triple jump. He also competed in the boy’s 600 meters, finishing in well under two minutes.

Senior Mike Mattison, competing for the final time, was disqualified for finishing a lap early in the men’s 1600 meter run.

As a team, the boys finished tenth out of ten teams.

Haley Wiskoski was the only female to get on the podium for Whitehall, as she recorded a sixth place finish in the girl’s 55 meter hurdles.

Morgan Winters came close, finishing seventh in the triple jump and long jump.

Abby Dickinson finished ninth in the shot put with a throw of 26 feet, 6 inches.

Ashley Millett finished right behind Dickinson in the shot put, earning a tenth place finish with a throw of 25 feet, 5.25 inches. It was the senior’s final indoor track meet.

The girls finished 11th out of 11 teams.
