Lady A Claims Shelby Open

It was just one point, a simple, but sweet note as “Lady A” &M won a battle with St. Teresa to claim the Shelby Girls Open Championship on Friday.

Central A&M took 1st with 97 points, while St. Teresa was 2nd with 96 points. Sullivan-Okaw Valley (58) was back by almost 40 points in 3rd to lead the rest of the field. Shelbyville was 11th (10 points), Pana 12th (7 points), and Cowden-Herrick/Beecher City 14th (5 points).

Central A&M had an advantage in sprints and hurdles, while St. Teresa was a pace ahead of A&M in the distance races and relays. A&M also had an edge in the weights. That made it a tight finish on points between the two rivals.

In the 4x4 relay, St. Teresa placed second for 8 points, enough to tie A&M. But the Raider 4x4 relay team of Jorgi Sparrgrove, Paige Seitz, Kylee Burcham and Mikaela Cole finished 6th. That got them one more team point, enough to nip St. Teresa, 97 to 96 to win the meet.

Amanda McClain (SOV) was queen of the meet, winning three individual events. The sophomore won her two signature events, the 400 dash (58.54) by almost three seconds and the long jump (17-0.5) by nine inches. McClain also won the 200 dash (25.99).

Taylor Adcock, A&M senior, almost won three events, but was edged in the 100 hurdles. Adcock won the 100 dash (12.8) and the reigning state champ in the 300 hurdles, won that event (45.07). She was edged in the 100 hurdles by Ashley Miller of Mt. Zion by three hundredths of a second. Miller ran a 15.81 and Adcock a 15.84. Adcock’s hurdle partner, Kaitlyn Corzine was 4th in the 100 hurdles. Adcock and Corzine earned 12 points in that one event. Corzine was 2nd to Adcock in the 300 hurdles and that got “Lady A” &M 18 points in one event.
