Maconaquah’s K.J. Walton was a double winner, taking top honors in the 200 in :22.22, as well as the 400 in :51.34. His winning time in the 200 was a new meet record.

Cass’ Cody Campbell topped the field in the discus with a heave of 140-10. And, Tipton’s Chase Bess won the 300 hurdles in :41.53.



Guerin Catholic took top team honors with 87 points, followed by the host Huskies (76), Yorktown (73.5), Western Boone (71) and Cass (61) to round out the top five. Eastern took sixth with 52 points, and Western finished eighth with 47.

Eastern’s Avery Ewing won the 400 (1:02.53) and finished second in the 800 (2:34.41). Danielle Reed took second in the shot put for the Comets with a heave of 32-3 ½.

Western’s Nicole Hampshire took top honors in the 3,200 in 12:09.01. Erin Knepley added a second-place showing for the Panthers in the 1,600 in 5:39.37, while Western’s 4x800 relay team of Hampshire, Knepley, Emily Mullilns and Reagan Ritchie finished second at 10:26.04.

Marion Relays

Kokomo finished in fourth place with a score of 71 points. South Bend Adams was the overall winner with 105.5 points.

The Kats placed in every event, except for the 100-meter hurdles.

“We were projected to score between 75-85 points, and we were really close to that goal,” Kokomo coach K.O. Jackson said. “Not placing in the hurdles really hurt, but we had some ladies who stepped up emptied their tanks and put some food on the table for us. It’s been a while since we’ve had a distance runner place so we are all pleased with Cin’s Andrews effort. She put in four miles of running.”

The Kats’ Summer Blackamore was a double winner. Blackamore set a new meet record in the discus with a distance of 127-feet, 6-inches. She was also tops in the shot put (41-3).

Kokomo’s Deju Miller won the high jump (5-0) and Lana Pham was second with the same height.
