NEWBURGH - Zach Avallone won two events but Tell City lost to Castle 80-43 in boys track Wednesday.

Avallone won the 300-meter intermediate hurdles in 41.41 seconds and the long jump at 18 feet, 7 1/4 inches.

He placed second in the 110 high hurdles in 15.08.

Tell City sprinter Kyle Kessinger, still recovering from a preseason ankle injury, ran only one race but won it handily.

He took the 400 dash in 51.27 seconds, just one-hundredth of a second behind fifth place on Tell City's all-time honor roll.

Another bright spot for the Marksmen was Spencer Sandage's winning the 3200 in 10:08. "That's a personal record by about 15 seconds," said Tell City Coach Chris Hollinden.

Sandage, Bryson May, Jordan Alvey and Dalton Sweeney won the 3200 relay in 8:37.77.

The Marksmen swept all three places in the discus.

Tyler Henning won it with a 128-foot-1 throw. Daniel Scott placed second at 125-7 and Cody Nash third at 123-4.

Sweeney placed second in the 800 and, Jay Ziegelgruber was third in the shot put, and May took third in the 1600 to complete the Marksmen's scoring.

Tell City, 2-3, will run at South Spencer Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.
