Rushville boys 4th at Pendleton Heights Invite

The following is an unedited boys varsity track report from Rushville coach Jim Marlatt.

The Rushville boys track team was in action Thursday evening competing against 8 other schools in the Pendleton Heights Invitational. The Lions performed very well in chilly conditions against excellent competition. The Rushville boys finished 4th overall in the meet. Pendleton Heights took the team trophy with a score of 143, followed by Roncalli-116.5, Mount Vernon-99, Rushville-86, Yorktown-74.5, Lapel-37, New Castle-27, Frankton-22, and Liberty Christian-14. The Lions season record now stands at 9-3.

Lion pole vaulters Keith Hallgarth and Nick Wethington were oustanding, both setting new career bests to finish 1st and 2nd overall clearing heights of 12’0″ and 11’6″ respectively. Senior Trevor Valentine won the long jump with a distance of 20’5.5″ with Ira Griffith taking 5th in the event with a jump of 18’4″. Griffith also finished 5th in the discus with a season best throw of 130’9.5″ with Leland Joya also competing. Trey Cain cleared 5’6″ in the high jump to finish in 5th place. Joya and Kohl Mann also competed in the shot put.

On the track, the 4×800 team of Isaac Chastain, Ethan Chastain, Michael Slaton, and Andrew Miller set a new season best time of 8:39 to finish 3rd overall. Valentine and Cain were strong in the 100 finishing 3rd and 4th with times of 11.77 and 11.99. Valentine returned to finish 3rd in the 200 as well with a time of 24.24. Griffith and Jonah Yazel took 6th and 7th in the 400 with times of 55.31 and 55.58. Miller took 4th overall in the 1600 finishing with a time of 4:50. Cole Dixon ran a season best time in the 3200 to finish 8th with a time of 10:53. In the 300 hurdles, Hallgarth ran well to finish 5th with a time of 45.19. The 4×100 team of Gerrian, Rufus Noe, Cain, and Valentine took 4th place with a time of 46.82. The 4×400 team of I. Chastain, Yazel, Griffith, and Miller finished 6th overall with a time of 3:46. Additionally, I. Chastain and Miller also competed in the 800, Connor Hay ran well in the 110 hurdles, Slaton ran hard in both the 1600 and 3200, Can was strong in the 200, and Gerrian competed well in the 300 hurdles.

Coach Marlatt: “Tonight was a great challenge for our team to compete against some excellent athletes. This was also the first chance to compete in an invitational style meet with heats and finals in several events. A boys only meet also leaves less recovery time between events and adds to the challenge. I am very pleased with our performances tonight and how the guys handled the meet overall. Competing well at this level will definitely pay off down the road in big meets such as Conference and Sectionals. There is definitely still room for improvement, but I think the team is in a very good place right now.”
