North Clay’s track and field teams split their three-way meets against Brown County and Owen Valley with the boys edging out Brown County 60-56 followed by Owen Valley’s 29 points. The Brown County girls won eight events on the way to a winning team total of 74 points with North Clay placing second with 44 points. Owen Valley was third with 26 points.

The boys’ squad got off to a good start with a 4x800 relay victory by 31 seconds (9:59) over Brown County and used their overall depth to edge past the Eagles, who won eight different events.

The Knights got event wins from Butts in the 400 meters, Landon Fulk in the shot put (41-4) and Colton Mckee in the discus with a throw of 113-5. Isaac Torbert won the high jump by clearing 5-4 and the 4x100 relay squad was also a winner.

However, North Clay picked up plenty of ground with top-three finishes.

Vincent Bonomo was the runner-up in the 110 hurdles (19.62) and Mekhi Salako was second in the 200 hurdles (31.2). Josh Wright claimed the second spot in both the 100 (12.14) and 200 meters (25.6) with Bonomo placing third in the 100 and Torbert taking third in the 200 meters. Trystan Langley took third in the 400 meters (1:04.2). Jared Parkey was a runner-up for the Knights in the 800 meters (2:29) and Stuart Bennett placed second in the 1,600 meters (5:18). Landon Fulk claimed third in the discus with a throw of 97-4.

The North Clay girls got some strong individual performances in the meet, but didn’t quite have Brown County’s depth to pick up the team win.

Riley Vitz claimed the win over her sister Ramey Vitz in the 100 and 200 meters. Riley crossed the finish line in 13.72 in the 100 meters and 28.8 in the 200. The 4x800 relay team was a winner by nearly a minute over the Eagles with a time of 10:40 and the 4x100 relay team won with a time of 54.94.

In the distance events, Brown County’s Abigail Fleetwood was a tough match-up for the Knights as she won the 400 and 1,600 meters. However, Evie Noel edged her in the 800 meters with a time of 2:31 with Katie Morrison in third. Noel was the runner-up to Fleetwood in the 1,600 with a time of 5:41 with Briley Shillings placing third by just a hair at the line. Sydney Maurer was fourth in the 100 hurdles and Gnister Grant was fourth in the 400 meters.

In field events, Macey Timberman was fourth in the long jump with Joslyn Slesinksi placing fourth in the shot put.
