Greensburg — The North Decatur track and field teams hosted the third annual Charger Invitational Friday afternoon. The Chargers hosted South Decatur, Knightstown, Milan, Tri-High and Waldron. The South boys scored 108.5 points for second place, while North scored 77 for fourth. Waldron won with 113 points.

The Lady Chargers scored 95 points for second place, while South’s Lady Cougars scored 50 for sixth place. Knightstown’s girls won with 169 points.

Kevin Nielsen led the Chargers with their only win, in the 300-meter hurdles, with a personal best time of 45.03 seconds. He also placed third in the 110-meter high hurdles with a PR, place third in the high jump, and anchored the 4x400-meter relay to a third place.

Brady Holloway and Eric Moorman led the distance runners with a second place in the 4x800 relay. Brady took fifth in the mile and third in the 800. Moorman took sixth in the mile and fourth in the two mile.

Senior Nick Gehrich took second in the discus.

Evan Wallpe finished seventh in the shot and sixth in the discus.

Rounding out the Charger scoring were:  Curtis Hillebrand with a fourth in the 400 and led off of the 4x800 and 4x400 relays.

Gage Acton with a sixth in the 2-mile.

Senior Kaleb Kramer with an eighth in the 800 and Brian Malone with an 8th in the 400.

For South’s boys, Sam Studler ran a 56.68 in the 400 and Luke May threw a 119-07 in the discus for victories. Chris Meadows took second in the 300 hurdles with a 46.09. Randall Canady was second in the long jump with a mark of 18-02, and second in the 200 (25.26). Canady was third in the 100 dash (11.64).

Freshman Megan Hoover again led the Lady Chargers with their only individual victories. Megan accomplished a rare trifecta by winning the 800m, 1600m, and 3200m runs. She also anchored the 4x800m Relay to a 2nd place finish.

Senior Katie Stevens added a 4th in both the 100m and 200m while anchoring the 4x100m relay and anchoring the 4x400m relay to the only other win by the Lady Chargers. Those members were Emily Kissel, Kaylee Rosenbach, Veronica Yager, and Katie Stevens.

Senior Veronica Yager returned to competition after injury to vital legs of all 3 relays.

Allie Louder added a 6th in the shot put and a 3rd in the discus.

Freshman Kaylee Rosenback added 4th in both hurdle events as well the high jump.

Freshman Carmen Zavala added a 5th in the 200m and a 6th in the long jump as well as leading off the 4th place 4x100m relay.

Emily Kissel added a 7th in the 800m run to her legs of the 2nd place 4x800 and winning 4x400 relays.

Lady Charger senior Jenna Meyer and freshman Megan Hoover, according to coach Mark Burry, are both pursuing school records and advances through the tournament season. The boys are led by junior Kevin Nielsen’s progress in the hurdles and high jump. Nick Gehrich is also making strides in the discus after returning from shoulder surgery on his throwing arm.

“Both teams are young,” said Burry. “As we gain more outdoor practice team and perfect more technique, these young Chargers have the ability to become very strong competitors.”

For the South girls Ashley Hamilton placed the highest on her team with a third-place run of 15:00.91 in the 3200. She took fifth in the 800 in 3:05.34.

Paige Wilmer placed fourth in the long jump with a 13-03.5.

Olivia Watkins took fifth in the 100 hurdles in 19.96. Lexie Armand took fifth in the shot put (25-01) and in the discus (76-03). Emily Mapes was fifth in the 1600 (7:34.26), and Anekah Bower fifth in the high jump (4-02).
