Bees make mark in road meet

BUCKHANNON — East Fairmont’s track teams had a solid showing at the Buckhannon Small Meet at Buckhannon-Upshur High School on Tuesday.

The Bees’ boys’ team took second in the team standings with 101 points, just three behind team champion Lewis County at 104, while the East girls’ sqaud scored 59.5 points to take fifth.

In the relays, East’s Wilson, Wadsworth, Cody Palmer and Myles Johnson notched a second-place finish in the 4 X 200 (1:42.21); in the 4 X 800, Jack DeVault, Arnett, Vincent and Hayes teamed to take second in 8:49.79.

The Bees also had several top five efforts in the throwing events. John Bowman was third in the discus (106-5) and fourth in the shot put (37-0). Teammate Cody Eckles tied Bowman in the discus with a throw of 106-5.

The Bees also won two girls’ events, including the 4 X 100 relay, where Ashlie Merrill, Macey Nuzum, Reghan Bailey and Nicole Licata rolled to a win in 56.08.

Merrill and Nuzum also did their part in the 4 X 200 relay, as the pair along with Ashlie Merrill and Kristin Busund team to take the event in 1:58.04.

Top athletes for the Bees included Nicole Licata in the 100 dash (second, 13.33); Ashlie Merrill in the 100 dash (third, 13.95) and 200 (third, 29.42); Lacey Nuzum in the 400 (fourth, 1:10.28) and 200 (fifth, 29.52); Rachel Ramage in the high jump (fifth, 4-4) and Mary Beth Sarsfield in the long jump (13-9).
