Union City hands Sheffield boys, girls track losses

The Union City Bears were able to best Sheffield on Monday, with the Wolverines boys falling 83-63 while the girls were defeated 93-57.

Dylan Hardwick (57.84) and Colby Barr (1:00.64) came in first and second in the 400-meter dash. The pair would also take part in the 1,600-meter relay (4:09.2) alongside Austin Fiscus and Marc Lewis and the 400-meter relay (48.4) with Alex Marfink and Isaac Hammerbeck, winning both. Lewis, Emre Morgan, Alex Eaton and Chase Kyler won the 3,200-meter relay (10:04.3).

Barr (12.54) came in second in the 100 meters with Marfink (12.74) close behind. Marfink (19.94) also came in second in the 110-meter hurdles. Freshman Chase Fetzeck (48.4) took first in the 300-meter hurdles, as Zach Barnes (50.84) and Christopher Joblon (51.34) rounded out the top three.

The Bears dominated the jumping events, sweeping high jump and long jump. Aamond Bowman (37 feet) placed third in the triple jump.

Trenton Mead (117-2) took second in javelin, closely trailed by Wyatt Newark (113-3).

The girls dominated the throwing events, with Emma Roell (82-4) coming in first in discus, Emily Davidson (86-9) taking the top spot in javelin, and Madison Snell (27-7) winning shot put. Madison Connolly came in second in both javelin (85-10) and shot put (27-2). Senior Kadence Steffan earned third place in shot put (26-0) and discus (66-1). Snell also came in second in discus (73-11).

“I was really proud of our lady throwers today,” said Sheffield head coach Jason Snell. “They have been practicing a lot and it showed today. Best part is they are mostly younger underclassmen.”

The 400-meter relay team (57.84) of Connolly, Snell, Raelyn Wightman and Katie Finch edged out the Bears by 3 seconds.

“Madison Connolly stepped up big time practicing with the 4×100 team about five minutes before they ran on a whim and ran an amazing leg filling in with the ladies switching legs and still winning and posting a great time,” Snell said.

Snell (14.74) came up just short of first in the 100 meters. Sarah Hoffman continued her successful season winning the 100-meter hurdles (18.74) and coming in second in both the 300-meter hurdles (57.04) and 200 meter (30.44). Freshman Olivia Romanowsky (4-5) won the high jump.

Sheffield will host Warren, Youngsville and Eisenhower on Wolverine Mountain on Thursday for the Warren County Track Meet.
