Greensburg — The Greensburg track and field teams hosted Batesville and East Central Thursday night to open the outdoor season.
The Pirates turned in winning and record-breaking performances.
Highlighting the tri meet for the Greensburg girls was sophomore Taylor McIntosh, who broke the school record in the 100-meter dash.
Not only did McIntosh set a new school record in the 100, but she also set a personal record in the 200 and moved up the Top Ten List in school history in the event. In 2013, McIntosh set her place in the record books tying as the sixth fastest girl in Lady Pirate history with a 27.2-second mark. She ran a new best in the event with 27.1, moving her to the fifth-place spot. The school record is 26.8 held by both Donna Tebbe (1988) and Myschon Bales (1998).
Freshman Rylie Smith also etched her name in the record books Thursday night. Smith is now the eighth-fastest Lady Pirate in 100 hurdles with a time of 17.44. The school record was set in 1999 by Jessica Hewitt with 15.08.
“This is an outstanding start to the season for these two young, hard-working ladies!” commented Greensburg girls coach Katina Tekulve.
Senior Mary Kamman won the shot put and discus, while Shelby Pake won the 3200-meter run.
Many personal records were also set by several girls during their first outdoor meet of the season. Junior Cara Zeigler ran her best time in the 100-meter hurdles.
For the Pirate boys, Kyle Redelman won the shot put with a new personal best.
The Trojan boys took home the team victory with 94.5 points with the Bulldogs tallying 54.5 and the Pirates finishing with 17. The lone winner for the Pirates was junior Kyle Redelman in the Shot Put. Redelman set a new PR with a toss of 47-0.5 on the evening. Senior teammate David Booker placed third in the Shot Put with a toss of 41-11.5. Booker also placed fourth in the discus with a throw of 104-04. Other placers on the evening were: Devin Ruble, tied 4th in high jump (5-02) and 4th in the long jump (17-07.25), Dillon Able, 4th in both the 110 Hurdles (17.7) and 300 Hurdles (46.9), and Greg Schroder placed 2nd in the 1600-meter run (5:16.1) and fourth in the 800-meter run (2:19.9).
“Overall, it was a good meet to see where we are and to see how well we would compete,” said boys coach Mike Myers.
Greensburg was scheduled to host the Crossbones Relays today (Saturday) at 11 a.m.
