REO—Perry Central won 13 of 16 events to cruise to victory in a boys triangular track meet Tuesday.
The Commodores scored 99 points, South Spencer 38, and Southridge 30.
“South Spencer had some good athletes there and (Cody) Thompson of South-ridge was the regional champion in the high jump last year,” said Perry Central Coach Jason Barnett.
Thompson edged Perry Central’s Andrew Huber to win the high jump, 6-foot-2 to 6 feet.
And South Spencer’s Isiah Stokes won two events, including the 400 relay in which Perry Central was disqualified for an exchange out of the zone.
But the rest of the meet belonged to Perry Central.
Levi Hilgenhold cleared 13 feet, 1 inch to win the pole vault, breaking the school record of 13-0 he previously shared with Ian Bashor.
Hilgenhold also won the 400 in 56.70.

He took the 300 intermediate hurdles in 43.97 and teamed with Abe Schwartz, Dacota Schaad and Austin LeClere to win the 1600 relay in 3:39.
