Pirate track teams host tri meet

Greensburg — The Greensburg track and field teams hosted a tri meet Thursday against Connersville and Shelbyville.

The weather held up and allowed all events to take place despite windy conditions and the threat of storms.

Shelbyville’s boys won the meet with 82 points. Connersville was second with 59, while Greensburg’s third-place total was 15.

Highlighting the night were first-place finishes by senior Colin Evans in the discus throw, and senior Ryan Martin in the shot put. Evans marked a discus throw of 121 feet, six inches, while Martin won the shot put with a mark of 44-06.

Junior Sean Sellers took runner-up in the high jump at 6-02, while Evans picked up a fourth-place time in the 800-meter run in 2:14. Freshman Peyton Buening completed the team scoring with a fourth place in the 3200, clocking a time of 11:40.

“Many solid performances throughout the night, despite not placing in events,” said boys head coach Mike Myers.

Kamman, Pake lead Lady Pirates

Greensburg’s girls took third place, scoring 29 points. Shelbyville edged Connersville 61-55.

Greensburg girls head coach Katina Tekulve said the Lady Pirates “performed very well individually,” as many athletes set new personal records throughout the meet.

Freshman Shelby Pake comfortably won the 3200-meter run, clocking a 12:21.

Freshman Kasey Moeller tallied two second-place finishes. She recorded a new season-best mark in the long jump of 14-10.5, and ran a 14-second time in the 100-meter dash.

Moeller was third in the 200 dash in 29.3.

Cara Zeigler took third in the 100 hurdles (19.6) and in the 300 hurdles (56.9), a new season-best.

Senior Ashton Lunsford clocked a 100-meter dash of 14.6, which is a new season-best.
