South Central didn’t have quite enough firepower to take down Henryville or Borden at the Southern Athletic Conference meet last Tuesday and Thursday, but came away with third-place team finishes.
On the girls’ side, the Lady Rebels finished with 93 points. Henryville led the way with 159, followed by New Washington with 110. Lanesville placed sixth with 27 points.
South Central did score five first-place finishes, two each from Rachel Pease and Shelby Miller and one from Abby Day.
Pease ran well in the 800-meter and the 1,600 to claim top finishes. In the 800, she completed the event in 2 minutes, 35.04 seconds. Pease stretched herself out in the 1,600, to win in 5:46.09.
Miller took top honors in both hurdle events. She defeated the competition in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 15.75 seconds and rolled in the 300 hurdles in 50.24 seconds.
Day found her form in the field events, winning the discus throw. Her best attempt was a throw of 100 feet, 4 inches, good for first place. Day also finished second in the shot put.
Megan Sherrard also had a solid performance for South Central, placing third in the 200.
Lanesville’s girls went home with a few top-three finishes. Sara Hausz finished second in the discus, and Miranda Kaake finished second in the 3,200.
On the boys’ side, Borden finished on top with 170 points, followed by Henryville with 153 and South Central with 73. Lanesville was fifth with 31 points.
South Central landed a first-place finish in the 3,200-relay event. The team of Aaron Schweitzberger, Cody Roby, Chris O’Connor and Tyler Hutchinson completed the event in 9:08.02.
O’Connor also picked up an individual first-place finish when he cleared 6-1 in the high jump. He also competed in the 3,200, placing second, and Lanesville’s Vince Cecil was third.
South Central’s Clinton Keys took second place in the 300 hurdles, and Coty Flannery was third in the long jump.
Lanesville was led by Asher Pursell’s top throw of 44-2 in the shot put to win the event. Teammate Nick Johnson wasn’t far behind, placing third.
