Quakers boys repeat, girls take second


After winning both the boys’ and girls’ Mid-State Conference titles last season, Plainfield went for a dual repeat Tuesday night. Plainfield’s boys’ won eight of 16 events en route to a second consecutive title, and the girls’ squad finished as the conference runner-up.

Plainfield’s boys scored 172.50 points and downed Whiteland (125.5), Greenwood (116.50), Franklin (83), Martinsville (59), Decatur Central (40) and Mooresville (18.50).

Greenwood (137.50) won on the girls’ side, followed by Plainfield (126.50), Mooresville (98.50), Whiteland (97), Martinsville (76), Franklin (53.50) and Decatur Central (26).

“We wanted to get personal-bests and win the meet, and overall I’m pleased to win with this class,” Plainfield coach Brian Pelkey said of the boys’ team. “We knew Greenwood was the favorite (on the girls’ side) and we just got too far behind to compete there.”

Keshawn Robinson and Samantha Woodford each set new conference records.

Woodford, a junior, bested her 1600 and 800 marks from last season.

“It’s nice, and now I have goals for next year’s conference,” Woodford said with a grin. “I’m glad I got them, but it was rough.”

Robinson bested the long jump mark that had stood since 1987 with a leap of 22 feet, 10 inches. Robinson also ran the third leg of Plainfield’s winning 4x100 relay with teammates Andrew Snoke, Josh Miller and Jake Maple.

“I’ve been improving every meet, and with four jumps in the finals I was thinking I would improve every jump, and I did,” Robinson said. “It was a good day.”

Andrew Snoke won the 100 and 200, and also ran in two winning relays.

“I’ve put a lot of hard work and dedication in ... I’m just trying to go out there and compete,” Snoke said. “There’s always room for improvement.”

Plainfield’s 4x800 team of Heath Deugan, Justin Pelkey, Joel Thompson and Zack Robinson started the meet with a win, and Plainfield never trailed.
