North wins boys, girls track meets

TERRE HAUTE — Anyone expecting the high school track and field meet between Terre Haute South and Terre Haute North on Tuesday to be a preview of things to come might be very disappointed.

All four coaches rested many of their star athletes. This was a make-up meet that was rained out on April 18. Coming off Friday’s MIC Championship Meet in Indianapolis and with an eye toward the Big Four and then the sectional, names like Jackson Bertoli, TaPring Goatee, Riley Stohler and Chanli Mundy were either missing or competing in an unusual situation.

“We’re missing a lot of the firepower out of the elite athletes, who may be running a different event than they normally would or may be doing an alternate workout, so it has taken away the luster of this meet a little bit,” South boys coach Kyle Walsh said.

“We do have some battered girls. We just want them to get healthy, so we’re pulling back on them to give them time to rest. But it will be a different story on Saturday,” North girls coach Mike Dason said.

North’s superior depth was simply overwhelming in both meets. North won the boys’ meet 79-53 and took the girls’ meet 85-47.

North’s girls and boys also scored duel meet victories over North Vermillion. The Patriots’ girls beat North Vermillion 116-16, while the North boys prevailed 109-22.

South’s boys beat North Vermillion 107-25, while the Braves’ won the girls meet 119-9.

North’s boys team was led by sprinter Jordan Moothery with firsts in the 100 and 200-meter dashes, as well as on the 400 relay team.

Moothery was followed by teammates Ricky Brookins and Dominick Farr and A.J. Smith in the dashes.

North also got two firsts from Cameron Stewart in the hurdles. Stewart led a one-two North finish in the 110-meter high hurdles in 15.75 seconds, followed by Cole Steward. Stewart won the 300-low hurdles in 40.89 seconds.

“I thought the boys did alright. [South] held a lot of guys back, so definitely the sectional is going to come down to North-South like always, but it’s going to be a lot tighter. We know the big win today [was because] they were resting a lot of guys,” North coach Craig Gillaspy said.

South’s boys were led by Logan Hambrock, who won the 800-meter run in 2:04.20 and the 1600 in 4:37.13. Hambrock started his day running a leg on the 3,200 meter relay and finished it with a link in the 1,600 relay, the final event.

“Nick Keller had a solid win in the discus (154 feet, 2.5 inches) and then Logan Hambrock has run four events for us and that’s been huge for the leader to step up,” Walsh said.

North’s girls were led by Keeliegh Stigall with wins in the 200-meter dash and 400. Stigall won the 200 in 27.86 seconds and led a one-two  North finish in 1:01.59 in the 400, followed by Jordan Kueher.

Mundy did run for North, but not her usual event. Sydney Dickerson won the 800-meter run for North in 2:22.03 and Mundy ran her first 800 of the season in 2:24.51.

North got two season-best performances. Alissa Turpin put the shot 37 feet 10 inches for first place. Keirra Porter took the long jump with a season-best leap of 17-feet-9.

South’s effort was led by Tasia Brewer with two firsts. Brewer won the 100-meter hurdles in 16.86 seconds and the 300-hurdles in 49.08 seconds.

“Almost everybody had one of their best times, best throws, best jumps on Friday [at the MIC], we had a good vibe as a team and I think that continued today. Times are coming down at the right time,” South coach Ed Jarvis said.

North Vermillion’s boys team took an impressive one-two in the long jump. Wade Harrison won the event in 20-feet-3 and Ethan Lee took second in 19-feet, 6.5 inches.
