Lady Arrows take 2nd in Arrow Relays

The Sullivan girls track team finished in second place at the Arrow Relays Saturday in Sullivan. Sullivan’s boys team took fourth place while the North Central track teams finished in sixth in both meets.
Evansville Bosse took first place in the girls meet with 112 team points, 39 points ahead of second-place Sullivan, while Vincennes Lincoln won the boys meet with 102 points.
Sullivan’s 4x100-meter relay team of Caitlin Alsman, Kyleigh Jones, Bailee Powell and Jenni Wilkes took second place with a time of 54.78, while Kyleigh Jones and Olivia Atkinson took second place in the 100-meter hurdles with a combined time of 39.72.
Darby Siscoe and Brittany Daugherty took the only first place finish of the day for the Lady Arrows with a combined height of seven feet in the pole vault. Siscoe combined with Powell in the long jump, where the duo combined for 25 feet and a third-place finish.
Wilkes competed in the high jump for the first time in her career Saturday. The sophomore was paired with senior April Webb as the two cleared a combined eight feet and 10 inches for second place.
The Sullivan discus team of Daugherty and Nicole Morgan took third place with a distance of 126-5.
The Lady Arrows also took third place in the 4x200, 4x400 and 1600 medley relays.
North Central’s sister team of Belle and Aubrey Evans took second in the shot put with 46 feet and four inches, while Belle and junior Brenda Scoville combined for 126 feet and six inches in the discus for second place.
Katie Crumrin, Ashley Hall, Alana Scarbrough and Galina Carrio took third place for the Ladybirds in the 800-meter medley relay with a time of 2:13.81.

On the boys’ side of the meet, Chris Tryon and Riley Witvoet teamed to win the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 33.21 seconds, more than two seconds over second-place Owen Valley.
“We had a lot of kids that ran really well for us,” Sullivan head boys coach Jeff Moore said. “We have things to work on, but I am pretty happy with where we are at. We have some people that can win some conference titles. “It’s a fun meet,” Moore added. “It’s a lot different than other meets.”
The team of Dylan Day, Michael Hutchcraft, Witvoet and Thomas Smith finished second in the 4x200 relay, crossing the line one second behind first-place Vincennes Lincoln with a time of 1:34.65.
Hutchcraft, Smith, Witvoet and Tryon took third place in a close battle in the 4x400 relay. Their time of 3:35.22 was less than two seconds behind first-place Evansville Bosse (3:33.44) and less than a second behind second-place Vincennes Lincoln (3:34.56).
“My 4x400 team probably ran the fastest time I’ve had a team run in six or seven years,” Moore said. “They ran really well. I think we have some people we can put together to make a run at state in 4x400. I think as the season goes on and they get stronger and in better shape they might have a chance.”
Ryan Vernelson and Hutchcraft cleared a combined 36-2.5 in the long jump for second place.
Lance Ellett, Vernelson, Michael McKain and Cody Harrison earned Sullivan a second-place finish in the 1,600 medley relay in 3:59.10. Vernelson, Ellett and Harrison then teamed with Day to take second place in the 800 medley in 1:45.
Elijah Hollis and Tryten Osborne combined to clear 8-6 in the pole vault for third place.
The North Central Thunderbirds’ R.J. Miller, Kegan Hunt, Jordan Kreischer and Dean Danner had a third-place finish in the 1,600 medley.
“The 1600 medley team of R.J., Kegan, Jordan and Dean finished third with a good time,” North Central head boys coach Jeff Ransford said. “We have a small team this year, so we had some guys doing events that they don’t normally do.
“It was a fun meet to watch because you don't always get to see the guys run some of those distances,” Ransford added. “I thought the guys did a good job at handling the weather and the change in events. Jordan Kreischer did a good job for us and as a senior stepped up and ran three races in a row.”
The North Central track teams will host the Cloverdale Clovers Tuesday at 5 p.m., while the Sullivan teams travel to Linton for a 4:45 p.m. four-way meet that will include Bloomfield and North Daviess.
“The season is moving along fast,” Ransford said.
