North sets outdoor records at Batesville

Batesville — A pair of school records fell Tuesday as the North Decatur track and field teams visited Batesville.

Batesville’s girls won with a score of 128. The Lady Chargers were second with 54, Jac-Cen-Del was third with 32 and Hauser was fourth with 26.

The Lady Chargers were again led by senior Jenna Meyer in the throws, and freshman Megan Hoover in the distance races. Both girls set school records. Meyer improved her school record in the shot put to 35 feet, seven inches. Megan Hoover broke the long-standing 3200-meter run record, held by Hannah Favors, by one second with a 12:27.56. Meyer added a win in the discus with 101-01, and Megan added a second in the 1600 with a time of 5:42.79.

Both girls are in pursuit of those school records as well, according to coach Mark Burry.

Senior Veronica Yager also gained a victory in the 800-meter run (2:48) in her first individual race of the season. Yager had just returned from an ankle injry she suffered during the basketball season.

Sophomores Laura Haunert and Allie Louder added a third in the 400 and a second in the discus, respectively.

Kevin Nielsen led the Charger boys with two second-place performances and a third. Nielsen finished second in both hurdles, with a personal best of 43.81 in the 300 hurdles and a 17.94 in the 110 high hurdles. He added a third in the high jump with 5-08.

Senior Nick Gehrich tallied a third in the discus and a fifth in the 100 dash.
