Tri-West girls win title, boys finish fifth

Danville takes fifth, sixth

CRAWFORDSVILLE — The Tri-West girls’ track team continued to make school history last night in Crawfordsville. The Bruins took home their second consecutive Sagamore Conference crown in as many years, marking just the second time in Tri-West history that the team has won a conference title.

“It’s spectacular for the girls, I’m just so happy for them,” Tri-West coach Brian Powers said. “They come in and work hard everyday in the winter and spring. They do whatever needs to be done and hold themselves and each other accountable.”

Tri-West (104) edged Crawfordsville (93) as Frankfort (88) placed third, Lebanon (84.5) finished fourth, with Southmont (65), Western Boone (63.5) and North Montgomery (38.5) rounding out the field.

The Bruins took the victory with a slew of first, second and third place finishes.

Tri-West’s team of Paige Lowe, Jordan Lightner, Keanna Lazaro and Megan Cole won the 4x100 and the Bruins took second in the 4x400 and 4x800 for a great showing in the relays.

Lowe also finished with two seconds in the 100 (13.85) and 200 (28.60).

Lisa Anderer won the long jump, the evening’s last event and assured the Bruins a victory.

Sophomore Karen Jones continued to impress in the shot put and discus events.

Jones placed second in the discus (101-00) and third in the shot put (34-07.50).

Kayla Stamm placed third in the 400 while teammate Carrie Chappell took third in the 3200. Lazaro placed second in the 100 hurdles and sixth in the 300 hurdles.

For the Danville girls, a few more points here or there could have jumped them into third place.

“We knew it was going to be really close and we would definitely have liked to have been on the upper end of that pack,” Danville coach Pat McKenzie said. “But, I felt like the girls really worked hard, ran well and performed well.”
