Trio leads Northwestern track to convincing win

Taylor baseball wins fifth straight; Tipton golfers edge NW.

Raymond Monroe, Brandon Curry and Chris Hendricks were each triple winners in leading Northwestern’s boys track team to a comfortable 83-40 victory at Peru Thursday.

Monroe won the shot put (43-2 1/2) and the discus (138-3). Adam Leach won the high jump (5-8). Curry won the 110 hurdles (17.3) and 300 hurdles (47.4). Keegan Fessenden won the 100 (11.9). James Schulte won the 400 (53.1). And Hendricks won the 800 (2:09.3)

Northwestern’s relay team of Austin Hartman, Charlie Neher, Bradley Jakes and Hendricks won the 3,200 relay in 8:56.4. Curry, Nick Perry, Tyler Martin and Monroe won the 400 relay (47.0). And Fessenden, Hendricks, Alec Gale and Schulte won the 1,600 (3:44.7) as the Purple Tigers improved to 5-1 in duals.

“We had a lot of depth again, several good first-place finishes, but a lot of strong performances for our second- and third-place guys. Throwers took 17 points in the throws and that was very good. I thought the guys ran sharp.

“We practiced kind of hard [Wednesday] and I thought they came through [Thursday] and ran very well. I think they’re just going to continue to get better and better.”

• In the girls meet, the Purple Tigers improved to 4-0-1 in dual meets with a 71-52 victory on the Bengal track. For Northwestern, Hannah Treadway won the shot put (31-10), Kylie Ballard won the high jump (5-2), Amber Miller won the long jump (16-0), Tianna Oden won the 100 (13.2) and the 200 (27.9) and Taryn Thor won the 3.200 (13:04).

The Tiger 3,200 relay team of Megan Bunch, Jaelynn Maple, Rachel Johns and Christine Dewhurst won in 12:06. Mollie Daily, Britanny Jocius, Faith LaDue and Andrea Myers won the 1,600 in 4:43.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
