NWCC meet

WAYNESFIELD — Lehman competed in the finals of the Northwest Central Conference meet on Saturday, and the Lady Cavaliers turned in an excellent effort in taking the runner-up spot behind champion Waynesfield.

Alanna O’Leary led the way for Lehman, winning the 400 dash, finishing second by the slightest of margins in the 200, placing third in the 100 dash, and anchoring the first-place 800 relay team, which also included Lauren McFarland, Kaitrin O’Leary and Rylie McIver.

Alanna O’Leary’s time in the 200 was 25.92, and that bettered both the meet and stadium records. The winning time was 25.78.

Maria Schmiesing also had a strong meet, placing second in both the 800 and 1600, running on the second-place 3200 relay team with Theresa Flood, Caitlin Swallow and Sophia Flood, and running on the second-place 1600 relay team with McFarland, Kaitrin O’Leary and McIver.

• The Lehman junior high teams both performed well, the boys bringing back the NWCC championship with 106 points, and the girls placing second.

Drew Ivey led the Junior Cavalier boys to the title. He won the 100 dash in 12.10, the 200 in 25.12, and ran the lead leg on the 400 relay team that set new meet and stadium records with a 49.14. He was joined on that foursome by Scott Peterson, who finished behind him in second place in the 100 and 200, Kyle Pierre and Josh Kempfer.

Kempfer added a second in the 400, Hayden Schmidt was second in the 1600, and Tristan Neal won the high jump at 4-10.

For the Lehman junior high girls, Colleen O’Leary was second in the 200 in 30.75 and ran on the second-place 1600 relay team with Paola Vazquez, Madi Gleason and Liann Trahey.

Emma Kennedy was second in the shot put at 33-4.

Riverside’s Lauryn Sanford won the high jump. She cleared five feet even to set new meet and stadium records. She also took first in the 400 dash in 65.52.

Riverside’s Kale Long won the shot put at 44-1 and ran on the winning 1600 relay with John Zumberger, Ethan Jackson and Caleb Wright (4:09.59).
