Chapman, Scribner claims league championships

W hen the Granville girls’ track team has needed points, it’s turned to the duo of Heather Chapman and Taylor Scribner.
That narrative didn’t change last Wednesday as Chapman and Scribner helped lead Granville to a fourth place finish at the Wasaren League Championships.
Chapman dominated the throwing events, winning both the shot put and discus, and Scribner’s strong season continued as she won the 100 meter dash.
Chapman, who head coach Tim Best has called one of the best throwers in the state, continued to build on a brilliant season, winning the shot put with a throw of 33 feet and one-quarter inch and the discus with a throw of 112 feet, 8 inches.
Scribner beat out a pair of Stillwater sprinters to win the 100 meter dash in a time of 13.30 seconds, nearly two-tenths of a second faster than the second place finisher.
She nearly made on to the podium in the 200 meter dash, qualifying for the final heat before finishing fifth. Teammate Brianna Kelly finished seventh in both events.
Scribner and Kelly were also part of Granville’s 4×100 meter relay team that finished third behind Stillwater and Cambridge. Katarina Thomas and Brianna Figueroa rounded out the team.
Thomas was the only member of the girls team to reach the podium, finished third in the long jump after clearing a distance of 15 feet, 4 inches.
Granville 4×400 relay team, consisting of Scribner, Kelly, Zoe Paige and Hannah Jones finished fourth. Jones also finished in a three-way tie for fourth place in the girls’ pole vault.
The boys team was paced by Alex Lasa, who finished third in the triple jump (39 feet, three quarter inches) and long jump (18 feet, 10.5 inches).
The boys 4×100 relay team, consisting of Grant Gallagher, Daegan Jones, Kyle Suchan and Lasa, was just edged off the podium finishing fourth.
As a team the boys finished tenth out of 12 teams.
Granville’s track teams will compete Friday at the Section II Championships at SUNY Albany.
