TRACK AND FIELD

Runners finish strong at regionals

The seasons of the Yellow Springs High School track and field teams ended this week with individual athletes competing well at regionals, but short of qualifying for states.

Freshman Julie Roberts ran the 300-meter hurdles at the Division III Southwest Regional Track & Field Tournament at Troy High School in 50.72 seconds. That was good for 13th place, while only the top eight qualify for states. Roberts was the only ninth grader in the field.

The 800-relay team of Cameron Henderson, Bryce White, Carter Collins and Ed Johnson ran their event in 1:35.74 at regionals, narrowly missing a state berth by two places. They finished in 10th.
