Local track teams shine at Jo-HIGH Invite


OSEPH - Mac-Hi's boys finished first and Weston-McEwen's girls placed second here Friday during the annual Jo-HIGH Invitational track and field meet.

The Pioneer boys prevailed in an eight-team field while the TigerScot girls were runner-up among 10 teams participating.

Weston-McEwen's boys wound up in fourth and Mac-Hi's girls claimed the fifth spot.

Kendall Brown led the Pioneer boys by winning the 200 (24.40) and placing second in the 100 (12.09).

Other Mac-Hi boys turning solid efforts were Lucas Simpson, Tony Ng, Eddie Olmos, Dylan Wagoner and Emily Childers.

Simpson won the 300 intermediate hurdles (47.59) and Ng and Olmos were 1-2 in the 110 high hurdles (19.53 and 22.75, respectively).

Olmos and Wagoner also posted thirds - Olmos in the shot put (35 feet, 1.5 inches) and Wagoner in the discus (116-7.5).

Childers was the winner of the 800 (2:28.0).

"Lucas had a good race all the way around," Mac-Hi coach John Milleson said. "Eddie's third in the shot was a big surprise. He's starting to push my other boys. Dylan had made some big improvement. I'm happy with the progress he's made. It was a good solid throw for him.

"We ran Emily in the 800 to get her some endurance work," Milleson said. "It's a relief to go to a meet and not have her run a 1, 2 and 4 in the same meet."

Weston-McEwen winners included Jacob Christopher in both the 1500 and 300 (4:52.03 and 10:44.60), Danielle Hinchliff in the 3000 (13:21.75), Mary Herbes in the pole vault (7-6), McKayla Carlin in the triple jump (33-5), and Corban Hegdal in the pole vault (11-6).
