H.S. track: Danville girls, Milton boys win



It wasn't a shock that Danville's Shelby Freedman won the javelin, the junior owns a throw of 150 feet this season, but Kasey Getkin was able to grab second with a throw of 106-2 for the Ironmen.

Sophomores Mallory Jones and Hannah Maize, along with freshman Nicole Maffei swept the 800 for Danville, nudging out Milton's top 800 runner Mel Hartley, who had won the 400 earlier in the event.

Jocelyn Pascul and Vicki Soltys had huge days for the Black Panthers. Pascul won the 200 (27.6), triple jump (34-6 ½) and the high jump (4-8). Soltys won the long jump (15-4) and pole vault (9-6), while finishing second in the 100. Both Pascul and Soltys also ran legs on the winning 400 relay team.

Jones also won the 1600 and ran legs on winning 1600 relay and 3200 relay.

Milton's depth in the sprints and double individual winners Travis Krall, Norman Whaley and Josh Brown helped the Black Panthers remain undefeated in the HAC-II.

The Black Panthers (5-0 overall, 4-0 HAC-II) swept the 100 and 200, won the 400 relay and had the top two spots in both hurdles races.

Our kids did a good job today. We did what needed to do. Our sprints I kind of expected that," Milton coach Tom Leeser said. "Our sprinters are good for our area, but I'm anxious to see how the fare in districts and out of the area. We have three real good ones that push each other."

Tyrel Kling (11.4), Chris Reuss (11.5) and Trevor Zimmerman (11.7) swept the 100, while the order was Zimmerman (24.1), Kling (24.2) and Reuss (24.7).

Krall won the discus (110-11) and the shot put (44-10 ½). Brown took the 300 intermediate hurdles (42.7) and the javelin (178-2), while Whaley won the 110 hurdles (16.7) and the triple jump (40-7 ¾).
