The South Decatur boys track and field team repeated as County Meet Champion Tuesday night, while the Greensburg girls track and field team captured the County title.

The South boys scored 83 points. Second-place Greensburg scored 47 and North scored 26.

The Lady Pirates scored 88 points. South scored 42 and third-place North scored 25.

Greensburg also honored seniors David Booker and Mary Kamman before the meet on Senior Night.

Hosting the meet, the Lady Pirates tallied several personal-bests while several athletes won multiple events. Greensburg senior Mary Kamman, sophomores Taylor McIntosh and Shelby Pake, and freshman Rylie Smith each won multiple championships.

The South boys were led by three-time champion 4x800 meter relay team, as the Cougars’ overall championship was the ultimate team effort. The Cougars also won several individual events. Senior Chris Meadows and junior Sam Studler won all four events they competed in.

Meadows won the 110-meter hurdles in 17 seconds, the 300-meter hurdles (44.0) and ran splits on relay teams. Senior Tyler Wamsley helped with a second-place time of 17.1 seconds in the 110 hurdles and second in the 300 hurdles (45.6).

North senior Kevin Nielsen won the high jump with a mark of 5-06 and the long jump (17-11.5). He also won the 100-meter dash (11.6). According to coach Mark Burry, Nielsen has been running 42 seconds consistently in the 300-meter hurdles in preparation to defend his Sectional Championship from last season.

South sophomore Justyn Clark won the 3200-meter run (11:27.2) and was second in the 1600 (4:56.8).

In a very competitive race, Greensburg’s Greg Schroeder won the 1600 in 4:54.7, Clark was second and North junior Eric Moorman was third (5:05.1).
