The following is an unedited report from Rushville coach Jim Marlatt- The Rushville boys and girls track teams traveled to Ball State University on Saturday to compete in the Owl Invitational Indoor Meet hosted by Muncie Burris. The meet offered a great opportunity for early season competition and the Rushville athletes performed very well.

For the Lady Lions, Senior Charity Griffith took 1st place in the high jump clearing a height of 5’3″. Isabella Runnebohm finished 2nd in the shot put with a throw of 32’0″ while Leah Kemple finished 14th overall with a distance of 27’2″. In the 3200, Natalia Meza finished in 4th place with a time of 13:15. Maddi Turner won the 60m hurdles race with a time of 10.04 with Lily Krodel taking 7th in the event with a time of 11.50. Turner returned to finish 4th in the 60m dash with a time of 8.51 with Summer Stanley taking 30th place overall with a time of 9.64.

And the 4×800 team of Krodel, Josie Corum, Kaitlyn Shook, and Dougherty finished in 5th place with a time of 12:33.

“I thought today was a great starting point for the girls. In many cases they are starting well ahead of where they have in the past which is an excellent sign for the rest of the season. With only minimal practices so far I am very pleased with how the girls performed today. This girls team has a great deal of potential and I think they are poised for an outstanding season.”

On the boys side, Keith Hallgarth finished 1st in the pole vault clearing a height of 12’0″. Tyreke Carr and Adam Bousman finished 10th and 11th in the long jump with distances of 15’10.5′ and 15’10”. In their first ever shot put competition, Ethan Zeisloft finished 13th overall with a throw of 37’9.5″ with Nick Amos finishing 29th with a distance of 24’10”. Andrew Miller was strong in the 3200 running away to win the race in the last lap with a time of 10:27. Cole Dixon and Kyle Stanley finished 5th and 6th with times of 10:52 and 11:19 while Guy Herrington and Caleb Krodel finished 9th and 12th with times of 11:31 and 11:47. In the 60m hurdles, Hallgarth took 2nd place with a time of 9.63 and Connor Hay finished 9th in 11.07. Zack Wood finished 8th overall in the 60m dash with a time of 7.71 with Carr taking 12th in 7.81 and Hay finishing 21st with a time of 7.97.

In the relay events, the Distance Medley Relay team of Dixon, Hallgarth, Ethan Chastain, and Miller took 1st place with a time of 12:12. The DMR team of Krodel, Sam Sterrett, Keith Bacon, and Stanley finished 4th in the event with a time of 12:37. The 4×800 team of Bacon, Sterrett, Nick Innis, and Chastain finished in 3rd place with a time of 9:30. The 4×200 team of Hay, Herrington, Carr, and Wood finished 4th overall with a time of 1:42. And the 4×400 team of Hay, Herrington, Bousman, and Innis finished in 5th place with a time of 4:06.

“The boys did very well today. This team will have quite a few new guys in new roles. It is going to be fun to put everyone in the best position to be successful and watch who steps up to fill in the gaps. Today was a good start to that process and I think that several people exceeded my expectations today. I am excited to get this season underway and watch this team come together.”

The top 24 indoor performances in class 1A-3A schools will qualify for the Hoosier State Relays Championship Meet held at Indiana University on Saturday March 23. The Lions and Lady Lions will have another chance to qualify next Saturday as they travel to Anderson University to compete in the Patriot Invitational hosted by Jay County High School.
