DUNCANNON - The Greenwood Wildcats fought the rainy weather to take home the PECO meet Monday at Susquenita.
The boys beat West Perry 90-78 and topped Susquenita 90-21.?The girls took down West Perry 109 1/2-45 1/2 and Susquenita 109 1/2-34.
On the boys side, Jared Myers dominated all three jump events. Myers finished the long jump at 20-5 1/2, the high jump with 5-10 and the triple jump with 41-7. Greenwood coach Tom Magill was proud of Myers' effort in the sluggish weather.
"Considering the conditions, Myers had a great day with four wins and a personal best in the long jump," Magill said. "He won that and the triple jump on his last attempt and it was a good effort for him."
Sal Buonocore finished in second place in both the 400 and 800 races. Matt Bixler finished with 12' throw in the pole vault.
The Greenwood girls dominated the track events as they finished first in the 200, 400, 800,1,600, 3,200 and 300 hurdles. Hattie Kuhns won both the 200 and 400. Magill knew his girls were the favorite.
"The girls meet wasn't a surprise," McGill said. "We knew we were superior to them as a team so it wasn't a surprise that we won."
Emily Fisher won the discus throw with a 102-9 throw. The Wildcat girls won seven events on the day.
Both Greenwood teams finished the season undefeated at 9-0 and will travel to West Perry Wednesday for the Tri-Valley League meet.
Inter-County Conference Championships
BELLWOOD - Mount Union has a duo of track athletes that are certainly a force to be reckoned with. Zach McKeehan and Alana Saulen have been just that this season.
McKeehan and Saulen remained unbeaten in their respective races at the Inter-County Conference Championships Monday in Bellwood. The Trojans had a total of four first-place finishes on the day, with Saulen collecting two.
Saulen won the 100 (13.2) and the 200 (27.3) dashes to remain undefeated on the season. McKeehan's time of 4:40 in the 1,600 was good enough for the ICC Championships record.
"I was pleased with Zach McKeehan today," Mount Union coach Bob Wydock said. "He was really pleased with that and Alana once again came through for us. She hasn't lost all season and along with Zach she is the team leader."
Hunter Gladfelter was the only other Trojan to win an event. He ran a 2:07 in the 800, which was his personal best.
"Hunter did a real nice job," Wydock said. "This is a giant stepping stone to the district meet next Tuesday."
Mount Union (Boys: 4-8; Girls: 3-9) travels to Everett Thursday.
