In the field events, Chase Alexander took second place in the discus (151-02). However, the highlight of the field events for the Orioles was Angelo Allen taking first place in the shot put with a throw of 55-02.
Martin placed third in the 800 and Akinyosoye finished third in the 200.
Toothman was impressed by the amount and quality of races that Akinyosoye participated in.
“Sogo did basically six races today with the two prelims,” Toothman said. “He did pretty well. He ran against some really good guys. His places tend to get overshadowed, because it is a really tough meet here.”
For Brownsburg the depth of the HCC caught up with the Bulldogs this season, according to coach Bret Neylon, as the Bulldogs finished eighth with 30 points.
“As a whole team, I’m a little disappointed,” Neylon said. “In this conference, it’s one of the best in the state, you have to be on it and you have to be giving 100 percent every stride out there. I’m pleased with a lot of the guys’ effort, but overall we are not running like we are capable of.”
Neylon was pleased that Jeremy Shupperd broke the school record in the hurdles. However, this showed the talent in the conference, as he finished seventh.
“You don’t need to go any further than that to see how tough the conference is,” Neylon said.
For the Bulldogs, Taylor Hemmert had the best finish of the night in the long jump, with a fourth place finish, clearing 20-00.75. Josh Mishler finished fourth in the pole vault.
Another highlight for Brownsburg was the 3200 as Justin Hays finished fifth and Mark Bond placed eighth.
“Our two milers, Justin and Mark ran personal records,” Neylon said. “You like to see that.”
