LEOPOLD—Elizabeth Kohnert won two of the nine events completed to lead Tell City past Perry Central 38-35 in a storm-shortened girls track meet Thursday.

Kohnert cleared 5 feet in the high jump to win it by two inches over Perry Central freshman Lindsey Gengel-bach.

Kohnert also won the 400-meter dash in 1:05.90.

“She ran the best 400 she has for a long time—I’m not sure she ran it that fast last season at any meet,” said Tell City Coach Katie Chinn. “She has worked hard over the winter.”

Two freshmen also won individual events for Tell City. Katlyn Braunecker won the 100 dash in 13.89 seconds and Sarah Goffinet took the 1600 in 5:49.08.

Goffinet teamed with Tiffany Davis, Andyn Rowe and Brittany Waninger to win the 3200 relay in 11:05.34.

Kyla Edwards won both throwing events for Perry Central, tossing the shot 28 feet, 6 inches and the discus 85 feet, 6 inches.

Jessica Huber won the 100 hurdles for the Commodores in 17.40.

She teamed with Arika Kemp, Jessie Foster and Brianna Crockett to win the 400 relay in 55.47.

The meet was the season opener for both teams.

Tell City will host Southridge Tuesday while Perry Central will visit Paoli for a triangular meet with the Rams and North Harrison.
