Track season concludes for local boys

Connersville — The Greensburg, North Decatur and South Decatur boys track and field teams competed in the Connersville Regional meet Thursday night.

Winning the team regional championship was Center Grove with 99 points. Warren Central took second with 89.5 points, while Columbus North (55), Franklin Central (53) and Whiteland Community (40) rounded out the top five.

The only teams beside Greensburg that represented the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference to score points were seventh-place East Central (25.5) and Franklin County (5) in 20th. Waldron, a conference rival of North Decatur and South Decatur, placed 14th with 15 points. Edinburgh was 26th with two points. No other Mid-Hoosier Conference teams scored.

“Unfortunately, no team members qualified for state on the evening,” said Greensburg boys coach Mike Myers. “Overall, this was not the night that the team had hoped for, but it still remained a successful season.”

Junior Sean Sellers recorded a no-height in the high jump.

For North, senior Nick Gehrich tallied a 10th-place mark of 125-04 in the discus throw.

North junior Kevin Nielsen competed in three events. He placed 12th in the 100-meter dash trials with a time of 11.72 seconds. He took 13th in the 300-meter hurdles in 42.68, and recorded a no-height in the high jump.

The South 4x800 relay team of sophomore Sam Studler, freshman Justyn Clark, sophomore Nick Grissom and Chris Meadows, took 16th in 9:33.93.

The 4x100 relay of sophomore Josh Campos, sophomore Randall Canady, junior Chris Johannigman and Meadows, took 14th in 47.12.
