Orioles third, Bulldogs eighth at HCC meet

ZIONSVILLE — For the Avon boys’ track team, it had been a while since they had a high pressure meet.

Despite this, they performed well at Friday’s Hoosier Crossroads Conference meet, finishing third with 114 points.

“We came in thinking that we were somewhere in the top three, probably a solid third, but maybe knock off one of the top two,” Avon coach Zach Toothman said. “We held our own...we had a lot of guys drop their times. This was a little more pressure being the conference meet and they handled it pretty well.”

Fishers (151) won while Hamilton Southeastern (137) finished second.

The Orioles got off to a blazing start as the team of Conner Voth, Evan Snodgrass, Taylor Kleyn, and Presley Martin took first in the 4X800 relay.

“I’m a little biased because I’m a distance guy, but the 4X800 is one of my favorite events,” Toothman said. “It is the very first event and sets the tone and that sort of thing. To come up with a win is always good. That is something that those guys have been eyeing for a bit. They are all in that event and that is their main focus. It is good to win against some good teams in that.”

Sogo Akinyosoye followed up with a second place showing in the 100, giving the Orioles the lead after two events.

The 4x100 team of James Bryant, Antwoine Moses, Jalen Edwards, and Akinyosoye took third for the Orioles.

“In general, we really focus on the relays,” Toothman said. “If you can score well in the relays in a big meet, you’re going to do well. We were third in the 4X100, which is big and we were fourth in the 4X400, so we held our own in a good conference.”

Marcus Griffin and Cameron Hollins took third and fourth, respectively in the 300 hurdles.
