At a recent state qualifier, two Granville sprinters ran their fastest times of the year.

A week after a successful sectional meet, Taylor Scribner and Kyle Suchan were the only two Horde runners to move on to the qualifier meet.

“They peaked at the perfect time,” Coach Adam Burr said. “They are two great kids to work with and be around.”

Scribner came in sixth out of 31 girls in the 55-meter dash for the preliminaries and placed eighth out of 12 girls for the semi-finals with a time of 7.79 seconds. She was pleased with the dash, which gave her a personal record.

“It summed up my season, I PR’d and it showed the hard work I put in all season and the time the coaches put into me,” she said.

Kyle Suchan, meanwhile, tied for 14th place out of 23 boys in the 55-meter dash preliminaries with a time of 7.07 seconds.

“They are two great kids to work with and be around,” their coach said. “We don’t have numbers to compete against the big squads, so I wanted us to improve as individuals every week.”

A week before, on Feb. 8, a number of Granville athletes fared well at a sectional meet.

Scribner snagged second in the 55-meter dash in 7.83 seconds and also claimed third in the 300-meter dash in 47.55 seconds.

Hannah Jones came in fifth in the 600-meter run in 1:54.26, and the two worked with Molly O’Brien and Rachel Bartholomew for fifth place in the 4 X 200-meter relay in 2:05.78.

Andrea Kibling also had a fifth place spot in the triple jump, with a distance of 29 feet, 6.5 inches.

For the boys, Suchan had a fifth place finish in the 55-meter dash in 7.23 seconds.

And Alex Lasa placed in three different events. He came in third for both the long and triple jump with distances of 17 feet, 4.74 inches and 38 feet, respectively. He also came in sixth place for the 600-meter run in 1:36.40.

“I’m very happy with the results and effort put in throughout the season,” Burr said. “They are a great group of kids I looked forward to practice and working with them.”
