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.
