Crestview won three relay events and had one individual champ, Wade Sheets, who won the 100 meter dash in 11.45 seconds.

Sheets, along with Darrin Nihiser, Jordan Perrott and Caylib Pruett won the 4×100 meter relay with a time of 46.02. The same four won the 4×200 meter relay team (1:36.03) and the 4×400 (3:39.69).

Second place finishes were recorded by Pruett (200 meter dash, 24.25); Josiah Updegrove (110 meter hurdles, 17.12, 300 meter hurdles, 45.17), and Dillon Underwood (400 meter dash, 59.39).

“Tonight we had our final auditions for some key roster spots for the tournament team,” Crestview head coach James Lautzenheiser said. “We had a number of season best times and marks through these efforts.”

“We need to attack the rest of the week and treat the South Adams Invitational (Friday) like it is NWC Finals, and we’ll be in great shape for the beginning of the OHSAA district tournament in two weeks,” Lautzenheiser added.

On the girls side, Wayne Trace scored 83 team points, followed by Paulding (73), Delphos St. John’s (64) and Crestview (33).

Maddy Lamb and Chelsea Taylor were individual champions, with Lamb winning the discus throw (85-05) and Taylor winning the high jump (4-08).

Lamb finished second in the shot put (30-07), and teammate Ragen Harting was the runner up in the 1600 meter run with a time of 5:58.24. The 4×100 meter relay team (Mackenzie Leeth, Nevaeh Pruett, Taylor and Chloee Case) also finished second, running it in 57.24.
