Track team wraps up season at Section II meet

Chilly temperatures and rain did nothing to dampen the spirit of Whitehall’s track team at last Wednesday’s Section II meet in Fort Plain.

A number of athletes recorded top ten finishes despite the less than ideal conditions.

As has been the case all year, the girls were led by Rebecca Lavin and Caitlyn Sandford, each of whom finished among the top seven in three events.

Lavin finished third in the long jump, clearing 15 feet, 8 inches, sixth in the 1500 meters with a time of 5:26.19, and seventh in the triple jump (31 feet).

Sandford finished second in the triple jump, clearing more than 33 feet, third in the high jump (4 feet, 8 inches) and fifth in the long jump (15 feet, 5.75 inches). A sophomore, Sandford has continued to improve throughout the season and should be one of the team’s top contributors during her junior season.

It was also a good day for fellow senior Ashley Millett who finished fourth in the shot put (26 feet, 1.5 inches) and sixth in the discus (77 feet, 10 inches).

For Lavin and Millett, both seniors, the meet was their last.

“It’s kind of sad; it’s kind of hard to believe its over,” Lavin said Monday.

Oshen-Kelli Beayon and Shelby Keane also recorded top ten finishes, finishing ninth in shot put and seventh in the discus, respectively.

The boys were led by David Greenough who had a pair of top ten finishes.

Greenough was fight in the high jump, clearing five-and-a-half feet and fourth in the tripe jump with a leap of nearly 38 feet. Andreas Meyer Giesow finished tenth in the latter event.

PJ Ferguson was seventh in the 3200 meters and Tyler Sweenor was tenth in the 400 meter hurdles.

The girls finished eighth out of 12 teams with 28 points while the boys were tenth out of 12 teams with seven points.
