Carmel Greyhounds win Fifth Overall Boys Track & Field State Championship

Carmel took first in the 400 Meters and 1600 Relay powering them to their fifth Overall Boys Track and Field State Championship, their fourth in seven years. Owen Schafer, 12, bested the field in the 400 with a time of 48.36. Joining Schafer on the Greyhounds’ 1600 Relay team were Andrew Willman, 10, Thomas Maurer, 12, and Colton Parker, 12. They finished with a time of 3:18.90. Kole Mathison, 10, and Jacob Fisher, 12, finished second and third, respectively, in the 3200 Meter Run, adding to the Carmel’s point total. Carmel also finished second in the 3200 Relay (William Anderson 12, Shammah Dosunmu 12, Kole Mathison 10, Bingham Hudson 12) and the 300 Intermediate Hurdles (Colton Parker 12).

The Senior Class had a excellent showing on Friday as Seniors took first in 9 of 13 individual events. Ezra Lewellen of Pioneer took first in the 100 Meter with a time of 10.67. Camden Marshall of Corydon Central was the quickest in the 1600 Meter at 4:07.31. William Neubauer of South Bend Adams bested the field in the 800 Meter finishing at 1:53.91. William Jefferson of Whiteland Community ran a quick 3200 Meter with a time of 8:54.05. In the field events, Keon Perkin-Sullivan of Warren Central took first in Discus with a throw of 179-09, Kamyren Johnson of Lawrence Central electrified the crowd with his clinching 7-00 jump to take home the High Jump crown, Riley Johnston of Hobart won the Pole Vault with a score of 16-06.00, and Devin Mockabee of Boonville scored a 23-03.75 jump to take first in Long Jump. What a way for these seniors to finish their high school careers, especially after having their junior season taken away.

Junior John Colquitt of Brownsburg swept the Hurdle events of Friday. He took first in the 110 Meter High Hurdles with a time of 14.53 and first in the 300 Meter Hurdles with a time of 37.84. He’ll have a chance to defend both titles next season.

Junior Tucker Smith of Columbus North threw a 67-11.25 in the Shot Put breaking a 24-year-old State Record. He has a shot at breaking his own record next season
