SMETHPORT — The Sheffield boys knocked off both the Smethport Hubbers 82-68 and the Northern Potter Panthers 129-29, while the girls were able to defeat Northern Potter 105-19 but fell to hosting Smethport 97-53 during a tri-meet Tuesday.

Three Wolverines sat atop the high jump, as Christopher Joblon, Hayden Holden and Zach Barnes all tied for first at 5 feet. Sophomore Aamond Bowman won the long jump (39-1).

“Aamond is a first-year jumper, and his (personal record) keeps going up over a foot every meet,” said Sheffield head coach Jason Snell. “It’s been pretty exciting so far and he is really close to districts. He will probably peak soon, but it’s been fun watching him as a beginner get better and better by the day.”

Bowman’s fellow sophomore Austin Fiscus won the 200 meters (26.2), while senior Alex Eaton was the winner of the 1,600 meters (5:29) and came in second overall in the 3,200 meters (12:20). Dylan Hardwick took second in the 800 meters (2:12.9) to Northern Potter’s Noah Sherman (2:06.2).

Eaton and Hardwick were joined by Marc Lewis and Chase Kyler in the 3,200-meter relay, as the team not only took home the win (9:18.8), but also qualified for districts.

“They were running such a great race, our lead just kept getting bigger and bigger,” said Snell. “They finished with almost a whole lap lead. I am excited to see what happens when they get a good weather day and some fierce competition, what number they can pull off.”

Hardwick was also part of the 400-meter relay team alongside Colby Barr, Isaac Hammerbeck and Alex Marfink. They took first in 48.1 seconds.

Landon Snell was the lone Wolverine thrower to take home a win, edging out Smethport’s Alex Cole in discus (94-4).

Wolverines’ Sarah Hoffman continued her strong season hurdles. The junior won both the 100-meter hurdles (18.7) and 300-meter hurdles (56.41). Emma Roell and Madison Snell came in first (13.6) and second (13.7) in the 100-meter dash. Roell also dominated discus winning by over 6 feet (86-2) and was part of the winning 400-meter relay (57.8) team along with Snell, Raelyn Wightman and Katie Finch.

Emily Foster won high jump (4-11) as Chloe Robinson and Olivia Romanosky came in second and third for the Wolverine sweep.

“It was a great night on the road for both the boys and the girls,” said Snell. “Lots of personal bests. Some underclass men have stepped up into some big roles and have been prevailing greatly.”

Sheffield will travel to Union City on Monday to take on the Bears.
