Avon girls take second consecutive county title

Woodford brings home four tiles

CLAYTON — While the rain was hit and miss all evening, the Avon girls’ track and field team was on point for the second year in a row.

The Orioles won five of the 15 events to claim their second straight county championship with 161 points.

Because of the rain, the pole vault event was moved to Plainfield today at 5 p.m. with a possible 18 points up for grabs that could shake the final standings for the rest of the order.

Brownsburg won three events and has 126 points to sit second, Plainfield (119) won four events and is third, Danville won two events and has 68 points to sit fourth, Tri-West won one event and has 67 points to sit fifth and Cascade rounds out the county teams in sixth.

Interim Avon coach Brad Rosebrock was happy in defending the county crown.

“I came in here and knew it would be a tough meet with Plainfield and Brownsburg. They have very good athletes, excellent coaches and it was,” he said. “There towards the end we had a lead but it was never a lead where we were comfortable.”

Winning for the Orioles was Malyka Abramson (3200), Kailyn Hutson (high jump) and Hannah Heim in the 100, long jump and as a member of the 4x100 relay team of Lanique Ellis, Kiya Keili and Monique Ellis.

Plainfield sophomore Samantha Woodford went 4 for 4 on the night by winning each of the events that she competed in.

“Sam is right there with some elite runners in the state,” Plainfield coach Brian Pelkey said.

Woodford won the 800 and 1600 runs and was a member of the winning 4x400 relay team of Samantha Burgess, Heidi Clossin and Zoie Cason and also a member of the 4x800 relay team of Brynn Olinger, Marina Pfeil and Sydney Simpson.

The laid back sophomore was satisfied with her showing at county but is focused on bigger goals.
