Track team places in many events

web-trackBy Jaime Thomas

Despite freezing temperatures and sleet the Granville track team fared well at their first meet of the season, the only one the Horde will host.

The boys dominated over both Cambridge, at 73 to 23 and Berlin at 85 1/2 to 29 1/2, while the girls had a huge 85-18 win over Berlin but just barely fell to Cambridge at 61-58.

The Horde took the first three slots for both the 100 and 400-meter dash, with Jacob Williams finishing in 11.7 seconds and Jacopo Depretto rounding the track in 1 minute and 3 seconds. The two, along with Ricky Prevost and Gabe Pratt, were also a part of the winning 4 by 800-meter relay, which they finished in 11 minutes.

Williams also outreached Berlin with a 4 foot 10 inch high jump. And Brandon Thomas, Ryan Dalaba and Russ Ahlfeld snagged the second, third and fourth spots for the 1600-meter run, coming in around 5 minutes and 45 seconds.

Heather Chapman took two top spots for the girls with a 30-01 shot put and a 98-01 discus throw. Horde runners were quick on their feet for the relays, as Emily Fox, Hannah Jones, Katarina Thomas and Taylor Scribner outran Cambridge in the 4 by 100-meter relay in just under a minute at 57.4 seconds.

The 4 by 800-meter team, consisting of Jones, Christina Rice, Hannah Gould and Brooke Stanley almost claimed the same title. But halfway through Stanley’s last lap, Cambridge pulled ahead and hoofed it for a win.

Scribner had a strong day elsewhere as well, coming in first in the 100-meter dash in 13.2 seconds and second in the 200-meter dash at 29.7 seconds, but she was followed close behind by Thomas in both events.
