SPORTS SUNDAY — Lightning strikes twice

The Yellow Springs High School girls 4×800-meter relay proved at their home track on Friday that lighting can strike twice, delivering a lightning-fast first-place run before lightning from the sky ultimately caused the Bulldog Invitational to be canceled.

The team of Lois Miller, Nicole Worsham, Rikako Kida and Alex Brown bested their higher-ranked opponents, Shawnee Springfield, by nearly 10 seconds, finishing in 10:49.91.

Antone Truss ended up with a share of first in the boys high jump (6’0”), since that event was halted midway through. He also came in second in the long jump (19’08”)AnnDee Pettiford placed fourth in the long jump (13’9”).
