Tri-West girls, Danville boys win conference

DANVILLE — After a day filled full of rain, the weather finally cleared and the sun broke through for the running of the boys’ and girls’ Sagamore Conference track meet at Danville on Friday night.

Tri-West’s girls accomplished a three-peat while the Danville boys brought home its first conference title since 2009.

“I’m really tickled,” Tri-West first-year coach Rebecca Saylor said with a big grin. “There was a lot of pressure tonight and everybody had to run, throw, jump what they were seeded or better and we did that.”

Paige Lowe (100, 200) and Karen Jones (discus, shot put) each won two individual events for the Bruins while Carrie Chappell won the 3200 and took second in the 1600.

Tri-West’s 4x800 team of Chappell, Kayla Stamm, Molly Henley, and Madison Sprecher opened the night with a win and the Bruins’ 4x100 team of Lowe, Shania Armstrong, Kate Henley and Megan Cole also took first.

Tri-West’s 4x400 team of Lowe, Sprecher, Stamm, and Henley placed second.

Neither Danville team had an individual champion on the night, but the Warriors’ depth proved very valuable on both sides.

“We’ve really played up the idea that we needed to be a complete team and find people to fill out all the events and score points,” first year-Danville coach Russ Sumner said. “We put together a great effort tonight to win the conference.”

Danville’s Jonathan Curtis (110 and 300 hurdles), Sam Bratton (3200), Daniel Gerber (1600), Nick Gilliam (200) and the 4x100 team of Gilliam, Curtis, Jesse Vondersaar, and Jacob Shirrell each finished as boys’ runner-ups.

Gilliam (100), Shirrell (200) and Gerber (3200) also placed third as did teammate Wesley Lefler (pole vault).

Danville’s girls improved from fifth last season to third this year.

“We’ve been working all season long on team concept and preparing ourselves to do as well as we could,” Danville girl’s coach Andy Wise said. “Tri-West was the clear favorites and WeBo was good… we ran a great meet.”
