Orioles win first HCC crown


For the first time in school history, Avon can add a trophy to the case — a Hoosier Crossroads Conference boy’s track championship trophy — as the Orioles outdistanced second-place Noblesville, 120.5-116.833.

“It was a total team effort,” Avon coach Zach Toothman said. “We had some guys who had an off night and some guys who really stepped up for us. A lot of people think that it is an individual sport. We don’t push that at all. It’s all about the team and this is a really good example for these guys and for the years after.”

David Schall finished second in the discus, and shot put, an event won by teammate Angelo Allen.

“Our throwers went one, two and we had to go one, two to win the meet,” Toothman said. “That was huge.”

Cameron Farris and Cameron Hollins also went first and second in the high jump, respectively. Hollins also finished second in the 110 hurdles while Farris and Will Hargis took second and third in the long jump, respectively.

“Farris is a first-year track guy,” Toothman said. “To be the conference champ in the high jump is huge. He also placed in the 200. He had a huge day.”

Avon's 4x800 team of Evan Snodgrass, Brandon Vu, Presley Martin and Taylor Kleyn finished second while Marcus Griffin finished third in the 300 and 110 hurdles. 

Will Anderson finished second in the 3200 and set an Orioles record.

“Will ran it in a school record by about a second and a half or two seconds,” Toothman said. “That was clutch because every single point really mattered.”

Brownsburg (77.333) finished sixth, but several individuals did well.

“As a team, we had some really good performances tonight,” Brownsburg coach Julie Waggoner said. “We had a lot of people who ran their best times and got some personal bests. I think that they came ready and they knew that this was going to be a tough meet.”

Hari Sathyamurthy won the 1600 and 800 events. 

The team of Nassif Kouton, Brandon Britton, Tyler Kirtz and Sathyamurthy took the 4X400 relay.

Kirtz also finished third in the 200.

“(Sathyamurthy) won the mile, the 800 and was a part of the 4X400 that got the conference record,” Waggoner said.
