The Warriors’ Olivia Stevens took home two conference titles with wins in the 100 (17.14) and 300 (48.74) hurdles.
“In the trials I didn’t do as well as I wanted because it was super windy,” Stevens said. “In the finals I fought through the wind and tried my best. It feels good, I just tried my hardest.”
Cami Collins took second in the pole vault (8-0), and tied the winner in height, but fell short in attempts. Teammate Lydia Russell was in the same situation as Collins in the high jump finishing third by way of attempts.
The 4x100 team of Collins, Chelsea Gould, Briana Bailey and Ashley Dickey placed third for the Warriors.
Andrea Utley placed fourth and fifth in the discus and shot put, respectively as Melanie Foreman took fifth in the 3200.
On the boys’ side, Tri-West (71) took fifth and Danville (66.5) finished sixth. Southmont (135.5) won followed by Frankfort (108), Lebanon (86) and Western Boone (74).
Tri-West’s Austin Lazaro capped a stellar conference career with two individual wins in the 100 and 200 and a team victory in the 4x100 with Joey Pfeifer, Kyle Cook and Evan Moser (44.32). The team just missed the Sagamore record of 44.10 as Lazaro trailed with nearly 50 yards to go before passing a Southmont runner for the victory.
“It’s awesome actually,” Lazaro said of going out a conference champion. “This year I’m just running the 100, 200, 4x100 and 4x400 to try and get our team some points. We go first and second usually in the 100 and 200.”
Tri-West freshman Wes Cook took second in the 100 and 200, making up the other half of that duo, and the sprinting events look good for the next several years for the Bruins.
Tri-West placed third in the 4x400 and Kyle Cook also took third, but in the long jump. Senior Jon Staton threw a personal best 42-10 in the shot put, taking fifth.
Danville’s Jonathan Curtis was the lone Warrior to take home a boys’ title with his win in the 100 hurdles (16.86). Curtis finished third in the 300 hurdles.
Danville’s 4x800 team of Adrian Coleman, Sam Bratton, James Thorpe and John Richardson took third. Nick Gilliam placed third in the 100 and fifth in the 200. Thorpe finished third in the 800.
