DUBOIS—Strong performances in the distance races led Tell City to victory in a rain-shortened boys triangular track meet Monday.
Tell City scored 54 points, Northeast Dubois 35, and Tecumseh 4. The Marksmen won eight of the nine events that were completed.
“We had the top three in the shot put and top two in the long jump, but one Northeast Dubois kid hadn’t jumped or thrown yet so they didn't count,” noted Tell City Coach Zac Hartz.
Tell City swept the top three places in the 1600-meter run. Donovan Ingle won it in 4:45.76, Cameron Sherry was second in 4:52.02, and Caleb Sherry was third in 4:53.47.
Travis Brinksneader teamed with Ingle and the Sherry twins to win the 3200 relay in 8:55.04.
“Our distance guys only gave up one point, and were well on our way to another dominating performance,” said Hartz.
Tell City sprinters also did well.
Elliott Brown won the 100 dash in 11.11 and Malcolm Lincoln was fourth in 12.18.
Lincoln, Brown, Cameron Kessinger and Nick Buchta won the 400 relay in 46.16.
Brinksneader won the 400 dash in 56.44 and Tyler Groves placed fourth in 58.28.
Brennan Malone won the 110 high hurdles in 15.15 and placed second in the high jump at 5 feet, 8 inches.
The Marksmen won the other two field events that were completed. Kevin Yeung set a personal record by 2 feet as he won the pole vault at 9 feet, 6 inches.
Clint Waninger won the discus with a 125-foot throw and Logan Labhart was second at 114 feet.
Waninger was also leading in the shot put with a 41-foot-3 throw. Labhart was in second place at 39-111⁄2 and Cody Osborne was in third at 38-111⁄2.
Lincoln was leading in the long jump at 19 feet, 11 inches. “He had an awesome first time in the long jump this season with four great jumps,” said Hartz.
Tell City, 3-0, will host an invitational meet Saturday at 9 a.m.
