Lewis Cass had mixed results in a track meet against Carroll Tuesday in Walton. The Kings won the boys event 71-60 and lost the girls event 69-63.
In the boys event, Austin Keisling was a triple winner as the Kings got good efforts from some athletes in different spots in a narrow victory over Carroll.
Keisling won the long jump (18-7 1/2), the 100 dash (10.8), and the high jump (5-4). Cody Campbell won discus (141-1). Levi Glassburn won the shot (43-9). And Cail Brown won the 3,200 (11:48).
Isaac Shaffer, Riley Bower, Brown and Payton Young won the 3,200 relay in 9:17. And Drake Hall, Gabe Welch, James Champ and Dylin Lybrook won the 400 relay in 41.7.
“We have a meet [today] with Eastern and Western so we had some people run different events,” Cass coach Don Watkins said. “We had some pretty good performances out of those. We ran some JV people in races and they were able to get us some points. We were able to move some of the main guys and get them some rest.”
He pointed out that Keisling, back in track for the first time since middle school, was put in the long jump for the first time and won it, plus had a good time in the 100 dash.
“It was pretty windy so our times weren’t the greatest. [Keisling’s] time in the 100 was wind aided,” Watkins said, noting that otherwise it would have stood among the top efforts in school history.
In the girls event, the Kings won nine events but came up short against Carroll by six points.
“I definitely ran them conservative with a meet against Eastern and Western [tonight],” Cass coach Grace Scott said. “The kids did a good job. I can’t complain. A few more second and third place finishes would have made the difference.”
Brooke Langley was a triple winner for the Kings, winning both the 100 hurdles and 300 hurdles and being part of the winning 4x100 relay.
