North girls win regional; FSHS boys second

ELLENBORO — Look out Charleston, Marion County is on its way... and fast.

Several athletes qualified for the state meet through Thursday’s Class AA, Region I Track and Field Championships at Chuck Schofield Memorial Stadium Thursday.

The strong individual performances helped North Marion’s girls’ team take first place and Fairmont Senior’s boys’ team earn second.

The North Marion girls scored 108 points to edge Oak Glen (107 points) and Roane County (92 points).

In each event, a total of 16 athletes from across the state advanced — the top three finishers in each region automatically move on, plus the next four fastests times overall. Judges are compiling results from around the state and those four will be notified this morning.

From the Huskies, Marlee Angelucci took first in the 100-meter dash and 200-meter dash to qualify. Taylor Trowbridge placed third in the mile. Madison Haught took second in the 100-meter high hurdles. McKenzi Fisher earned third in the 300-meter hurdles. Alexis Hillberry ran to third in the 400-meter dash. And Skylah Haught took third in the long jump.

Angelucci also anchored the 4x200 team which took first. The Huskies’ 4x100, 4x400, 4x800 and shuttle hurdle teams all took second to earn a trip to Charleston.

Fairmont Senior’s boys’ team scored 88 points to finish behind the host Ritchie County (104 points) and ahead of third-place Roane County (84 points).

Moving on from the Polar Bears will be Neil Scherich, who took first in the 110 high hurdles and discus throw. He will be joined by Daquan Hilson, who took first in the shot put, and Andrew Summers, who took second in the same event. Dakota Mouser took third in the high jump to move on.

The Polar Bears also qualified several relay teams. The 4x200 and shuttle hurdles relay teams took first and the 4x800 team placed third.

The East Fairmont boys finished eighth with 24 points and qualified its 4x400-meter relay team. The girls’ team ended the day in 10th. It did not have any girls in the top three to automatically qualify, but Macy Nuzum placed fourth in the 100- and 200-meter dash and has a good shot to get in, as do many other competitors who took fourth and fifth. More information about those athletes will be available when the results are finalized.

Fairmont Senior’s girls team placed seventh. Mia Manzo took third in the 100 and 200.

North Marion’s boys’ team ended up ninth with 17 points. The Huskies shuttle hurdles team placed third to automatically qualify for states.
