NEW RICHMOND — Western Brown won the final three events Wednesday and held off Wilmington for the SBAAC American Division girls track and field championship.

“The girls were so close and they really wanted to be the ones that brought home that championship that’s been missing for two decades,” WHS head coach Chris Reynolds said.

Wilmington’s last league championship came in 2000.

“When I crunched the numbers, I had us losing by 12, so we set out a strategy to close that gap and have a chance,” said Reynolds. “They executed that plan with determination and missed out with photo finishes in several races that coule have tipped the championship in our favor.

“We’re going to lose some great seniors but the core of this girls team is coming back and will contend again next year.”

The league meet was held at New Richmond High School, opening on Monday and finishing on Wednesday.

Clinton-Massie was fifth in the final team standings.

Clinton-Massie’s top finish came in two relays. The 4×400 team of Hannah Bowman, Gracie Wallen, Madi Bayless and Kaylee Ramsey were third as was the quartet of Morgan Riggers, Kinsey Beam, Leah Binau and Bayless in the 4×100 relay.

For Wilmington, Taliah Billingsley won the 100-meter hurdles then Sophie Huffman took first place in the 100-meter dash.

Taylor Noszka narrowly missed a track and field hat trick. She won the 800- and 1,600-meter events but finished second in the 3,200-meter run.

“Taylor Noszka is as competitive as you’ll find,” Reynolds said. “I really put a lot of miles on her but I new she wanted the challenge and could do it. She dominated the 1,600 and 800 but the other girl from Western Brown had less miles on her and it was hard for Taylor to overcome that in the heat for the 3,200 in the end. I told her it was going to hurt and she didn’t flinch at the task. It was our only chance to close that gap to WB’s depth.”
