Central's Alyssa Bartley sets the pace in the 4x400 relay victory against Bellwood-Antis on April 11. Bartley also won the 100-, 200- and 400-meter runs.

The Central track and field team won one of its four matches last week.

On April 9, the team split with Penns Valley and Clearfield. The Dragons defeated PV 85-64 but fell to Clearfield 106-44. On April 11, the Dragons fell to both Everett (83-67) and to Bellwood-Antis (96-55) at home.

At Clearfield, Trevor Quarello, Colin Rupert, Colby Liebal and Parker Gregg combined to win the 400-meter relay in 48.48. Rupert also won the javelin with a throw of 118-10.

Battling against Bellwood, Josh Biesinger won the 400-meter run in 55.9 and the high jump with a leap of 5-8, while WT Davis was a double winner in the 1600-meter run (5:06) and 800 (2:18.3). Camden Leach won the 110 hurdles (18.66), Lane Kocher the 3200-meter run (11:56.3) and Jarod Dick won the discus throw (101-1.5).

Against Everett, the 4x400 team was again victorious along with the 4x800 relay team. Ethan Eicher, Bradon Kensinger, Lane Kocher and Luke Knisely ran the relay in 10:06.84. Other winners were Demetrious Harbaugh in the 100-meter sprint (12.62), Davis in the 1600, Kocher in the 3200, Biesinger in the high jump, Dick in the discus and Mason Baker in the javelin (123-4).

"The boys competed but we ran against some solid teams again. We're winning about half the events but lack of depth has cost us at times," Central coach Kayla Wheland said.

CHS Girls

The Lady Dragon track team fell to Clearfield (86-62) and Penns Valley (97-50) in Mountain League action on April 9. In non-league action on April 11, the girls fell to Bellwood-Antis (77-73) and Everett (92-55).

Central won 11 of the 15 individual events against Bellwood but still came up short on the scoreboard. Alyssa Bartley had a huge meet, winning the 100-, 200- and 400-meter runs and setting the pace in the 4x400 relay victory. Emma Lingenfelter won the triple and long jumps as well as the 800-meter run, while Jocie Miller took gold in the discus and javelin throws. Bartlett won the 1600, Claire Conrad the high jump and Rachel McCready the discus.

Against Everett, Leah Decker won both the 110 and 300 hurdle races while Miller took the javelin and Bartley the 200-meter sprint.

"The girls competed hard but came up short. We had a great performance against Bellwood but again depth was the deciding factor," Central coach Kayla Wheland said.
