All 3 schools sending regional competitors

St. Leon — The Greensburg, South Decatur and North Decatur track and field teams turned in solid performances at the IHSAA Boys Track and Field Sectional meet at East Central Thursday. All three schools will send at least two athletes to the Regional tournament next Thursday.

Individual champions on the evening who automatically punched their ticket to the regional were Sean Sellers in the high jump and senior Colin Evans in the 800-meter run. Evans also qualified individually in the discus with his second place finish. Seniors Ryan Martin and Peter Myers rounded out the individual qualifiers with their third/fourth place finishes in the shot put.

The 4x800 runners were Chase McCreary, Peyton Buening, Francis Teague and Michael Back. Those runners and the alternates will also make the trek to Connersville next week.

North Decatur junior Kevin Nielsen qualified in three events. Nielsen won the 300-meter hurdles in a time of 42.28 seconds, and placed second in 11.5 seconds to advance in the 100-meter dash. He took third in the high jump with a mark of 5-10.

Senior Nick Gehrich will compete in the discus throw. He tallied a third-place mark of 125-10 to qualify for the regional.

For South, junior Chris Meadows advanced to the regional in the 300 hurdles with a fourth-place time of 44.02.

A pair of South Decatur relay teams will compete in the regional, along with two pair of alternates for each relay. The South 4x100 meter relay team of Josh Campos, Randall Canady, Chris Johannigman and Chris Meadows, tallied a time of 46.62 to advance. The South 4x800-meter relay of Sam Studler, Justyn Clark, Nick Grissom and Chris Meadows, clocked a third-place time of 9:01.63 to advance.

Two Cougars scored points by placing in the top eight for South. Junior Luke May took eighth in the shot put with a throw of 39-11. Senior Zack Gault took eighth in the discus throw with a mark of 110-05.

South sophomore Byron Haley just missed qualifying in the 110-meter hurdles. He clocked a 17.38 for fifth place, less than a half-second behind Meadows. Josh Campos took fifth in the 200-meter dash with a time of 24.60, just missing the mark.
