ALEXANDRIA - Mount Union's boys and girls track teams each picked up a win against different opponents Tuesday, splitting up a tri-meet with Juniata Valley and Southern Huntingdon.
The boys got a solid performance on the track with multiple individual wins going to Zach McKeehan (800, 1,600), Casey Cramer (both hurdles) and Greg Keiser (long and triple jumps). McKeehan also was on two winning relays and Cramer on one.
"They both came through and stepped up for us," Mount Union coach Bob Wydock said.
The boys swept three running events - the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 - and the pole vault against Juniata Valley, the school they beat.
The girls' only sweep was against Southern Huntingdon in the long jump. But, they recorded two firsts from Alayna Saulen (100 and 200) and Katrina Hammon won all three jumps plus the 100 hurdles.
"I'll tell you what, Katrina Hammon really led the way for the girls team," Wydock said.
Both teams improve to 2-8 overall, 2-6 in the Inter-County Conference. The Trojans host Fannett-Metal Thursday.
Track and field
Boys: Greenwood 109, Millersburg 41
Girls: Greenwood 83, Millersburg 67
MILLERSTOWN - While most track and field meets were postponed due to the weather, Greenwood and Millersburg met in Millerstown in a Tri-Valley League meet.
The Wildcats got the best of the visitors in both the boys and the girls meets. The boys thumped Millersburg 109-41 and the girls got passed with an 83-67 victory.
"This is a pretty similar score to the last time, but the conditions were not great," Greenwood coach Tom Magill said of his boys team. "Our best effort was Matt (Bixler) in pole vault."
That 11-9 performance from Bixler was good enough for his personal best. Picking up multiple wins for the boys was Cody Peterson in the 100 and 200 dashes.
Possibly the girls best effort came from a girl that didn't even win a race, Magill said.
"Our best girl today was probably Sara Barton in the 800," he said. "She didn't win but I thought that was pretty good."
Emily Fisher was the a force on the field for the Wildcats. She won the shot put and the discus. Sierra Stephens was victorious in the high jump and the javelin.
Greenwood (Boys: 4-0, Girls: 4-0) hosts East Juniata Thursday in its final home meet of the season.
