Avon repeats as sectional champs

PLAINFIELD —  For the second consecutive season the Avon Orioles girls’ track team hoisted a sectional trophy. Avon’s championship at Plainfield last night prolongs a very good year for the Orioles as they were county champions and also placed the highest as an Avon team ever had in the Hoosier Crossroads Conference early last week.

“All around, I’m really proud of what they accomplished and truly, honestly, this win goes to the team. We needed every point possible,” Avon interim coach Brad Rosebrock said. “Defending the sectional championship, especially graduating so many good girls from last season, this team proved that they could match what the girls did last year.”

Avon (119) bested county and conference rival Brownsburg (109.50) by a slim margin for first. Plainfield (71.50) finished fifth, Danville (43.50) was sixth, Tri-West (40) placed seventh and Cascade (1) was 12th.

To advance into next week’s regional, runners and field athletes had to place in the top four or meet the state standard in their respective events.

The Oriole’s first event winner came in the 4x100 relay as the team of Lanique Ellis, Hannah Heim, Danyetta Johnson, and Monique Ellis finished well ahead of second place Mooresville.

Avon’s Malyka Abramson brought home the only other Orioles event championship, winning the 3200 (11:14.58).

Kailyn Hutson cleared 5-0 in the high jump, but was short on attempts and finished second.

Avon’s tandem of Ellis and Heim finished second and third, respectively, in the 100. Heim also placed second in the long jump (17-00), coming up with the school record in that attempt.

Avon’s 4x800 team of Abramson, Victoria Collins, Kelsie Mothersead and Courtney Kerr took third, finishing in a time of 9:52.34.

The Orioles’ Aaliyah Beverly finished third in the 200 (27.84), as did teammates Megan Price in the 1600 (5:20 .91), Kerr in the 3200 (11:35.99), and Madison Keele in the pole vault (9-09).
