Brownstown track sweeps Crothersville, Austin in first meet


The Brownstown Central boys and girls track teams used their depth to easily defeat Austin and Crothersville at Blevins Stadium Tuesday afternoon.

The Brownstown boys won 10 events to pile up 96 points to 58 for Austin and 3 for Crothersville.

The BC girls won 11 events and scored 78 points to 50 for Austin and 32 for Crothersville.

Camryn Thompson had a big meet for the BC girls as she won the 100 hurdles in 17.0, won the 300 hurdles in 52.4, and she ran on the winning 400 and 1600 relay teams.

Thompson said she was pleased with her 100 hurdles.

“I had a good race in the 100 hurdles. I had good form. That time is a PR for me. The 300 hurdles are a long race and I’ve got work to do.”

She said she needs to work on her form and needs work on her speed between hurdles.

Thompson, a junior, helped the 400 relay team run a 54.2 and she helped the 1600 relay to an easy win.

“I like the relays,” she said. “I like being out there with three other girls. It’s a lot of fun.”

Jazz Yeadon was also a double winner individually for the Braves as she won the 400 in 1:10, and she won the long jump at 14’1”.

Other Brownstown girls who placed first were Noelani McPherson in the 100 at 14.3, Maddy Schepman in the 200 at 28.9, Paige McCain in the 3200 at 12:43, Kaitlyn McCormick in the pole vault at 7’6”, and Addie Shelton in the shot put with a throw of 32’0”.

Kaylyn Holman led the Crothersville girls by winning the 800 in 2:38 and the 1600 in 5:47.

Kennadi Lakins won the high jump for the Tigers at 4’8”.

Caleb Cummings had a big meet for the Brownstown boys as he won the 100 in 11.4, the 200 in 23.8, the high jump at 5’6”, and ran on the winning 400 relay team.

Dustyn Kocsis was a double winner for the Braves as he won the shot put at 42’8.5” and the discus at 154’5”.

He said his discus was his career-best and he has a big goal for this season.

“My first throw was my best throw,” he said. “I was trying to get a mark and it just flew. I want the school record, which is 170-feet-9. I just need a good day and a good throw.

“My shot put could have been a whole lot better. My technique was a little off. Going from the big discus ring to the smaller shot put ring you’ve got to adjust quickly. I need to work on my technique and my footwork. I need to get across the ring smoother.”

Other Braves to place first individually were Greg Hutcheson in the 300 hurdles at 43.9, Garrett Driver in the 400 at 53.6, and Hudson Fritz in the long jump at 16’1.75”.

The Braves won the 400 relay in 47.4 and won the 1600 relay in 3:48.1.

Crothersville’s best finish was third by Travis DeHart in the 100.

Brownstown will practice all week with its next meet being next Tuesday at Eastern. Crothersville will compete in the Corydon Invite on Friday night.
