A&M settles for OVC 2nd

St. Teresa backed up the troop carrier, loaded up and was able to pull out a 10-point victory over Central A&M for the OVC girls track championship in Tolono on Friday.

St. T scored 118 points and Central A&M scored 108.Clinton’s sprinter’s led them to 3rd place (102), followed by Monticello (72) in 4th and Sullivan-Okaw Valley (58) in 5th. Shelbyville finished 9th (10).

St. Teresa’s distance runners led the way, but they had enough other girls step up to get the win. A&M has been looking for the most effective way to score with their many assets, but a few points here and there cost A&M on Friday, so it was rival St. Teresa that won the day.

A&M’s Taylor Adcock won the 100 dash with a new season best time (12.54) and won the reigning state champ in the 300 hurdles won that event (46.42), followed by teammate Kaitlyn Corzine (46.90). But with a full field, Adcock finished 4th in the 200 (27.05).

Emily Neuhauser, parts of the SOV state champ 4x2 last year, all but owns the 200 and won that event (26.35) on Friday, while sophomore teammate Amanda McClain (27.35) joined her in 6th to get a point.

A usual triple threat, McClain did win the 400 (59.84) and the long jump (16-6.5), followed by teammate Mollie Bowman in 3rd (14-7). McClain was on the 2nd place SOV 4x2. Ericka Tomczewski, Bowman, McClain and Neuhauser ran a 1:49.61, behind Clinton. Clinton’s sprinters are challenging for preeminence this season and have thrown a monkey wrench into CAM and SOV’s point totals.

Adcock didn’t run the 100 hurdles, because A&M found an alternative duo to take #1 and #2 in the event without having to use her.

One of the most decorated Lady Raiders in track, senior Kaitlyn Corzine, who won the state hurdle title in middle school and medaled last year in the 100 and 300 hurdles, won the OVC 100 hurdle championship (15.64). Freshman Ryan Dooley, also a state hurdles champ in middle school, ran 2nd (16.66).
