Lavin wins Triple Jump

SPORTS TrackThis story has been revised to include the results from the Section II meet in Fort Plain on May 25. An earlier version of this story had the incorrect results.

Rebecca Lavin made sure she ended her high school track career on a high note.

The senior wrapped up an outstanding season by winning the triple jump at the Section II, Class D meet held on May 25 at Fort Plain.

Lavin recorded a distance of 32 feet, 6.5 inches to edge Canajoharie’s Christina Towse by 1.5 inches.

She nearly won the long jump as well, finishing a mere inch behind Middleburgh’s Amanda Roney.

She finished fourth in the 1500 meter run with a time of 5:43.48.

Sophomore Caitlyn Sandford also had a successful meet with three top-six finishes.

Sandford cleared 4.5 feet to finish sixth in the high jump and was fifth in the long jump, recording a distance of 14 feet, 2.5 inches. But her best performance was in the triple jump where she finished third after recording a jump of 31 feet, 10.25 inches.

Senior Ashley Millett, competing in her final track meet, finished fifth in the shot put with a throw of 25 feet, 10 inches.

As a team, the girls finished seventh out of 12 teams.

David Greenough led the boys with a pair of top-six finishes.

He finished third in the high jump, recording a final distance of 36 feet, 10.75 inches and was sixth in the high jump clearing the bar at 5 feet, 3 inches.

Tyler Sweenor tied Salem’s Kyle Broughton for first in the pole vault with a height of 10 feet, 6 inches and Justin Hoagland ran the 100 meters in 12.64 seconds, good for sixth.

The boys finished ninth out of 11 teams.
