EVANSVILLE -- Athletes from the Wabash Valley faired well in their trip to the Evansville Central Regional for track and field on Thursday evening.

Athletes from Terre Haute North, South and Cloverdale combined to win five different events and added three, runner-up finishes in the quest to advance to the IHSAA Boy's State Track and Field Finals on June 2 at Indiana University.

The Braves got event wins by Tyler Seibert in the 400 meters (50.15) and Jackson Bertoli in the 3,200 (9:18.48) to help push their team to second in the final point standings behind Evansville Harrison. The Braves scored 58 points to Harrison's 83 with Terre Haute North earning third buoyed by a win by their 4x800 relay team and by Connor Curley in the pole vault.

Cloverdale's Joseph Rumley continues to surge at the right time as he added a regional title in the 800 meters to the sectional he captured last week at Terre Haute North High School. Rumley improved his time to 1:55.35 to win by an impressive three seconds over Riverton Parke sophomore Riley Stohler. Greencastle's Tyler Hudson was third as all three advance to the state finals.

For the Northview contingent, the results weren't as promising as the 4x800 relay team of Ian Heffner, Devon Cooksey, Damon Hyatt and Nic Yocom placed ninth in 8:29.43 to produce the team's top finish. Heffner also had an 11th-place run in the 300 hurdles was the best effort for the team. The Knight's sophomore ran slightly faster than his seeded time to finish in 41.82.

In the throwing events, Terre Haute North's Larry Davis was a big story on the day as he smashed his seeded distance in both the shotput and discus to earn a spot in next week's state meet.

Northview senior Ethan Stewart placed 14th in the shot with a throw of 44-11 on the day.

Davis threw 51-10 in the shotput, which was more than two feet farther than his previous best and placed him third. His effort in the discus was even better as he came in with a seeded distance of 138-8, but destroyed that with a second-place throw of 153-9 .

Forest Park senior Ben Braunecker was the winner in both events with a throw of 58-8 in the shot and 169-1 in the discus.

In the pole vault it was Curley, who went seven inches higher than his sectional winning height in topping the field by that same amount. The Patriot senior cleared 15-7 to move on in the event.

West Vigo's Andrew Kump advanced with a third-place run in the 1,600 to finish one spot behind Terre Haute South's Logan Hambrock. The Patriots' Cole Seward placed third in the 300 hurdles and the Patriots and Braves finished 2-3 in the 4x400 relay event.

The qualified athletes are set to compete on Saturday, June 2 at the Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complete at Indiana University beginning with field events at 3 p.m.
