RIPLEY — Track and field athletes from across the area braved cloudy and cold conditions at the RULH Invitational earlier this month.
After some issues with scorekeeping delayed the results for roughly a week, the Georgetown G-Men walked away with both the girls’ and boys titles.
On the girls’ side, Fayetteville’s Kate Boler placed fourth in the shot put, behind Ripley’s Ripley’s Amanda Proctor, whose mark of 24’ 3 3/4” left her roughly one foot shy of Peebles’ Ryanna Shearer for second place. Proctor also placed fourth in the discus, finishing less than six inches behind Georgetown’s Aly Wilburn for third place.
The Lady G-Men placed two athletes in the top eight of the long jump. Rachel Gibbons finished fourth, just over an inch ahead of teammate Bayley Johnson. Fayetteville’s Riley Claytor won the event, jumping 13 feet, 8 3/8 inches.
Local schools dominated the girls’ high jump as well. Georgetown’s Stephanie Ayres edged Ripley’s Carlee Daulton by two inches to take home first place, while Fayetteville’s Tiffany Snider finished third.
Only two teams competed in the girls’ 800 meter relay, and Georgetown’s squad finished four seconds behind the quartet from Blanchester. In the 1600 meter run, Georgetown’s Savannah Carter placed fifth.
