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.

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.”
