Several Pirates victorious in Crossbones Relays

The Greensburg track and field teams hosted the Crossbone Carnival Relays Saturday morning against Columbus North, Connersville, East Central, Madison, Oldenburg, and Pendleton Heights.

The non-scoring event was an opportunity for relay teams to compete in a variety of different relays or paired field events in a fun yet very competitive atmosphere.

The Lady Pirates fared very well and had many highlights throughout the day, according to girls head coach Katina Tekulve.

The Greensburg Sprint Medley Relay team, composed of Arie Hampton, Cara Zeigler, Taylor McIntosh, and Rylie Smith, dominated the field as the quartet came away as first place medalists.

These same Lady Pirates were very competitive in the 4x100 Relay race with a second place finish behind the Pendleton Heights team.

Throwing pair, Mary Kamman and Erin Browning, earned runner up positions in both discus and shot put.

Greensburg’s Long Jumping duet, McIntosh and Smith, placed third with their combined jumps while High Jump partners Hampton and McIntosh placed fifth.

A new relay team season best was also set during the meet. The 3200 relay team, Shelby Pake, Michaela Myers, Alyssa Allen, and Abby Layman, improved their team time for the season from 12:03 to 11:41.

“The first week of competition proved to be a very good start to a great season for the Lady Pirates,” said Tekulve.

The lone relay winners for the Pirate boys were the Shot Put tandem of Kyle Redelman and David Booker. They won with a combined mark of 89 feet.

Second place finishers were: Shuttle Hurdle Relay (Devin Mick, Matt Navarra, Cody McConnell and Dillan Able), Throwers 4x100 Relay (Kevin Beaver, Jake Hempstead, Kyle Redelman and David Booker).

Third place finishers were: 4x200 Relay (Devin Ruble, Dillan Able, Devin Mick and Jacob Myer), Sprint Medley Relay (Jacob Myer, Devin Ruble, Dillan Able and Cody McConnell).

Fourth place finishers were: High Jump (Devin Ruble and Matt Navarra), Long Jump (Devin Ruble and Cody McConnell).

Fifth place finishers were: 4x800 relay (Greg Schroeder, Logan Yeager, Dylan Barber and Louis Moore), Discus (David Booker and Kevin Beaver).

Placing sixth was the 4x400 relay team of Dillan Able, Dylan Barber, Greg Schroeder and Jacob Myer.

Greensburg Track and Field will compete next tonight (Tuesday) against South Dearborn and Jennings County.
