For The Tribune


Crothersville’s boys and girls track and field teams used depth to run past Southern Athletic Conference opponent New Washington in a home meet Thursday afternoon.

The Tigers boys won nine events on their way to a 65-50 win, while the Crothersville girls brought home 10 blue ribbons in a 69-38 victory.

Boys coach Carl Bowman said he was pleased to see Noah Hoskins earn four blue ribbons, as the senior won the shot put (35-5), discus (111-6) and 100-meter dash (11.75) and ran on the winning 400-meter relay team.

“He ran 11.75 again in the 100, so we’re satisfied with that,” Bowman said. “I’m not really satisfied with his field event distances compared to (Wednesday night at Henryville), but he didn’t have to push very much.”

Max Neumann won both hurdles with times of 23.3 in the 110s and 1:01 in the 300s, Dillon Maschino won the 200-meter dash (24.3) and Lane Wienhorst won the 400-meter dash in 1:00 and the 1,600-meter run in 5:20.

“Out of no place, Max Neumann got second in the high jump with 4-10. He had never jumped before, and he won both hurdles and was third in the 800,” Bowman said. “Dillon won the 200 like he has all the time, got second in the 100, second in the long jump and he jumped in that relay, so he got us four places.

“Lane got his places in his stuff, David (Rose) got his places and Kelsey (Spangler) got a couple places, so everything concerned, with the numbers we have, it was a good meet,” Bowman said. “I cannot remember in the last two or three years winning a meet easily, so I was pleased with the guys being able to win this meet.”

Tigers girls coach Cheryl Nehrt said she was happy to see six different girls win individual events.

Makayla Helt led the Tigers by placing first in the 100-meter hurdles (20.02) and the 800-meter run (3:11) and ran on the winning 1,600-meter relay team.

Maddie Riley won the 300 hurdles (1:06) and ran on the 400 and 1,600 relay teams, Piper Hensley won the 1,600 (7:09) and was on both relay teams, Isabell Lewis won the 100 (14.07) and ran both relays and Rebekah Cook won the 400 (1:32) and was on the 400 relay.

Shea Reynolds won the discus (66-5) and was on the 400 relay, and Kalynda Hoevener won the shot put (28-6).

“We had a lot of people that did well,” Nehrt said. “We had PRs (personal records) in discus and 200. We have one out sick, and then we’ve lost three, so we’ve only got six girls running, and we covered all the events, which was awesome because we had throwers that jumped in and ran, so that’s how we ended up winning the meet. We had girls do things that they don’t normally do.”
