On Thursday night the Whitko men’s track and field team placed 5th out of 11 teams at the Plymouth Sectional. Leading the way were the two sectional champions of R.J. Patrick in the pole vault (11’6″) and Cameron Sapp in the discus (142’7). Other regional qualifiers were the 4 x 100 relay team of Ashton Schuh, Zack Freel, Sean Blaine, and R.J. Patrick who placed third (45.98), and Gage Howard who also placed 3rd in the discus (134’4″). These young men will represent Whitko at next Thursday’s regional meet at Kokomo H.S.
Some others who did well but narrowly missed out on regional berths were Clayton Ebbinghouse in the 110 high hurdles (16.92), Gage Howard in the shot put (41’8″), and Zach Gardner in the pole vault (10’6″). Great job, guys!
