PREP TRACK AND FIELD: Tigers take charge

Raiders finish in second at NLC track meet

WARSAW — The host Tigers captured the team titles in runaway fashion while the Northridge Raiders took the runner-up spots in both the boys and girls NLC high school track and field championship meets Tuesday night at Fisher Field.

“Both of our teams were 7-1 during the regular season and when you do that one of two things can happen,” Northridge coach Josh Fletcher said.

“You can try your best to tie for first place while at the same time you want to make sure you don’t lost that second spot.

“Warsaw has a lot talent on both the boys and the girls side.”

The Tigers accumulated 169.33 points in the boys meet, followed by Northridge 116.50, Elkhart Memorial 101.83, Goshen 88.50, Wawasee 84.33, Concord 63.50, Plymouth 53 and NorthWood 52.

The Warsaw girls amassed 202 points, followed by Northridge 128, Elkhart Memorial 112.50, Concord 94, Plymouth 70, Goshen 46.50, Wawasee 41 and NorthWood 37.

Jessica O’Connell of Concord was a double winner taking the 100-meter hurdles (15.49) and the 300 hurdles (45.36).

Her time in the 300s broke the meet record of 45.4 by Liana Yoder of Goshen in 2012.

“Jessica was amazing,” Concord coach Lindsay Yoder said. “She did not let us down in anything she ran tonight. She is the type of kid that when she steps on the track you know she is going to do what she needs to do.”

O’Connell also broke the 300 record a year ago when she finished behind Yoder.

“I knew the record was a possibility,” O’Connell said.

“It feels really good to break it and to win both events. The last stretch of the 300s I pushed as hard as I could. I wanted to win no matter what.”

O’Connell had a busy night as she also ran on Concord’s 4 x 100 relay (second in 50.98) and 4 x 400 (second in 4:07.73).

“I’m pretty tired,” she said.

Among the highlights for the Northridge boys was a 1-2 finish in pole vault by Josh Rheinheimer (13-8) and Devin Puckett (13-0).

“They have been doing that for us all season,” Fletcher said.

“I was impressed with our 4 x 800 relay (fourth in 8:07.02). The boys also got sprinters in the finals of the 100 and 200 and we had two in the hurdle finals. Michael Fickert taking fourth in shot out (46-11 3/4) was a key for us. So was Blake O’Dell taking second in the 3,200 (9:38.77) and Jacob Frost third (9-51.86).

“The thing about Frost is the 3,200 is not his normal event. He usually runs the 800. Going up like that is quite an accomplishment.”

Highlights for the Northridge girls were a first in the 4 x 800 relay (9:30.72) from Mandy Campbell, Olivia Golden, Mackenzie Gray and Corinne Cominator and a first in shot put by Madison Stewart (38-8 1/2).

“Winning conference championships is huge,” Fletcher said.

“Morgan Blyly ran well in her events as did Olivia Golden.”

Reid Zimmerman was one Goshen athlete Redskin coach Brock Maust said.

“Reid ran a 1:56 split in the 4 x 800 and then finished third in the 1,600, second in the 800 and ran on the third-place 4 x 400 relay,” the coach said.

“Cristian Barron had a heck of a meet for us.

“On the girls side it was nice to see Tricia Place finish third (9-4) in pole vault. Adrienne Henke had a good night and so did Marisela Salazar.”
