Arabians mount another county title

FAIRMOUNT — Beautiful sunshine and warm temperatures greeted the competitors for the Madison County Track Meet at Madison-Grant High School Friday afternoon. The Pendleton Heights boys and girls teams were looking to take the county for the third year in a row but Anderson and Lapel had other ideas. It started off as a record setting meet and finished with a bang as Pendleton was able to wrap up both titles. The girls held off a stiff challenge from Lapel to win 167.5 to 147 and the boys took the final event of the night to squeak out a 156.5 to 148.5 win over Lapel.

The times were fast early set as Plensah-Tay Sakeuh of Lapel planted a meet record of 15.35 seconds in the 100 meter hurdles and Kiawna Cotrell of Pendleton broke her own record of 12.59 set last year with a 12.57 time in the 100 meter dash. Sakeuh’s run in the hurdles surpassed the old record of 15.99 set in 2003. Sakeuh went on to break the 300 meter hurdle record by two seconds, finishing in 45.45 and winning the event by over seven seconds.

If those records weren’t enough, Madison-Grant’s Bethani Herniak broke her own record in the shot put with a throw of 37’2.5”. Along with Contrell’s control of the short events, the distance runners for Pendleton were able to get the show started and finished it even stronger with Alex Buck setting the 3200 meter record in the next to last girls event with a time of 11:53.8. Buck shattered the old county record by nine seconds and beat teammate Alli McCarty to the line by 15 seconds. Katie Quick of Frankton finished third, over a minute and a half behind Buck. But even with the strength of the Arabians’ in the short and distance events, it was the hurdles and high jump that helped provide the difference.

Should the Pacers match Portland's offer sheet to center Roy Hibbert?

Yes, Hibbert is important to the team and the community
No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
