Track and Field
BAINBRIDGE – Bainbridge-Guilford/Afton ruled the short sprints in a five-way meet Wednesday, and cruised to a 70-point win over Delhi Wednesday.
The Bears swept the top three positions in the 100-meter dash led by Josh Norris, and Norris paced a one-two finish in the 200-meter dash. Of the 17 events contested, the host squad claimed nine total wins. Justin Pepper also had a pair of individual wins taking the long jump and high jump.
Greene junior Chad Noelle showed his versatility in winning the 400- and 800-meter races. The 2009 Class C state place winner in the 1,600 meters last year, was just coming off a win in the 3,200 meters last weekend at the B-GA Spring Break Invitational. In the 800, Noelle narrowly edged the Bears’ Chris Burnett by less than a second.
For the girls, B-GA polled 104 points to edge runner-up Greene by 14. The victories were much more spread out among the five teams. Emily Woodford of Oxford won three total events to lead her club.
Jess Avery was the lone Bears competitor with two individual wins. Avery took the long jump, and headed a one-two finish in the pole vault.
