Blue Streaks take two from Warwick
Warwick senior Bailey Groves came away with three individual wins in the throws on Monday afternoon in wind-swept Neffsville, leading the Lady Warriors to a 30-24 edge against Manheim Township in the field events.
Unfortunately for the Warwick girls, however, it wasn’t enough to overcome a sizable Blue Streak edge on the track, and the Township girls went on to earn an 83-58 advantage in a Section One meet in Katie Vann’s coaching debut for Warwick.
Township completed the sweep on the boys side, earning a similar 88-53 decision over the Warriors.
While Bridget Neslund was the big star for the Township girls, earning three individual wins of her own, Groves was equal to the challenge for Warwick, winning the shot put (37-4 1/4), discus (88-1) and javelin (85-10). Nicole George added a silver in the javelin (73-6) and a bronze in the shot put (24-10 3/4) to help support the Lady Warriors.
In the track events, Warwick jumped to an early lead by taking the 4×800 relay behind Bethany Han, Maddie Class, Amanda Graber and Rachel Mueller and Racheal Mueller, breaking the tape in 10:35.5 just ahead of the Blue Streaks (10:38.4).
But the MT girls won the next two events, the 100 hurdles and 100 dash, and they were on their way.
Mueller added a victory in the 800 (2:32.9) and Class took home top honors in the 3,200 (12:31.6) to help lead Warwick. Kristi Reidenbaugh was victorious in the 1,600 (5:49.3) and Jenica Miller chipped in with a pair of seconds in the 100 (13.3) and 200 (28.0).
Turning to the boys, the Warriors were led by Colin Garner, a double individual winner in the throws, and Chris Sandkuhler, who had an individual win and a relay win to his credit.
Sandkuhler teamed up with Phil Headland, Mike Urban and Ben Mueller on the first-place 4×800 relay which crossed the finish line in 8:27.9, and later, he outlegged teammate Mueller for first place in the 1,600 in 4:45.5. Mueller placed runner-up in a time of 4:54.6. Headland chipped in with a second-place finish in the 800 in 2:07.2.
In the field events, Garner was the big story for the Warriors, winning the discus (117-0) and javelin (153-5). Landon Hess, meanwhile, took the high jump (5-8) and added a silver in the long jump (17-4 3/4).
