Avon repeats as sectional champs



Brownsburg’s Sibong Ncube won the 100 hurdles in a time of 15.76 for the Bulldogs’ first victory of the night and it was her third straight sectional title in that event.

“It feels pretty good, but I knew I had to have a good performance,” Ncube said. “I pulled through at the end with the last three hurdles.”

Brownsburg senior Stephanie Mavunga won the shot put (40-00) while freshman teammate Claire Hathaway placed first the long jump (17-06). Adding to the list of Brownsburg’s sectional champions was freshman Megan Berry in the pole vault (10-00).

Brownsburg’s Briana Smith finished second in the 200 (27.33).

The Bulldogs’ 4x400 squad of Smith, Chloe Dygert, Tavon McCollum, and Lauren Markovich placed second in a time of 4:09.95.

Ncube, Smith, Flo Akinribide, and Monique Burns took third in the 4x100 (51.30). McCollum also placed third in the 400 (1:02.25) as did Crystal Stowers in the shot put (37-08).

Plainfield’s squad of Brynn Olinger, Sydney Simpson, Samantha Woodford and Marina Pfeil placed second in the 4x800 (9:46.18), barely missing first place Zionsville (9:46.10).

Woodford nearly passed the Zionsville runner at the end, but after the two runners brushed each other, the Plainfield sophomore lost her stride and could not recover quick enough to make the pass.

“We came down the straightaway and she said she wasn’t expecting me and I guess I should have went on the outside,” Woodford said.

Woodford won the 800 (2:19.27) took second in the 1600 (5:17.66), and helped the Quakers’ 4x400 team of Samantha Burgess, Heidi Clossin and Zoie Cason to take first in a time of 4:08.79.

Olinger also finished second in the 3200 (11.16.18).

Danville’s lone champion of the night was sophomore Lydia Russell in the high jump as she cleared 5-00, winning on attempts.

Sagamore Conference 100 and 300 hurdles champion Olivia Stevens placed third in the 100 (16.97) and second in the 300 (48.55) for the Warriors. Teammate Chelsea Gould finished third in the 300 hurdles (49.17).
