In a Mid-Indiana Conference meet preview, Lewis Cass ran past a pair of league stalwarts Wednesday in Walton.
The Kings scored 60 points to edge out the post-Neeley twin Eastern Comets (57) and the Western Panthers (50) on senior night.
Kelsey Smith swept wins in the 100 dash (12.7) and 200 dash (26.8) for the Kings. Claire Crum won the 400 dash (1:01.8), and Maci Maupin was first in the long jump (16-2.75).
The 4x100 relay team of Smith, Maupin, Brooke Langley and Crum was first with a time of 51.9 seconds. The 4x400 relay team of Smith, Langley, Haley Johnson and Crum won in 4:25.
“Tremendous effort across the board tonight,” Cass coach Grace Scott said. “We talked a lot in practice about the importance of second and third place finishes to help out in the points and our throwers come up huge with a second (Malley Ronk), third (Sanders) and fourth (Miller) in discus. I believe they made a huge difference for us tonight.
“Crum and Smith were huge for us and are running faster each meet. Haley Johnson had a personal best in the 800 with a time if 2:33.5 and lost by an eyelash to Ewing. We wanted to make our seniors proud on senior night and I’m glad we were able to come away with a win. Eastern and Western always bring tough competition and I know we are all looking forward to the MIC meet.”
