NEW RICHMOND — For the second year in a row, the Wilmington High School boys track and field team reigns over the SBAAC American Division.

With solid performances on both days of the championship meet here at NRHS, Wilmington was an easy winner over runnerup Western Brown 156 to 100. The Broncos also were second last season.

The meet was contested on Monday and Wednesday.

“The boys once again were well balanced as a team in throwing, sprints and distance,’ head coach Chris Reynolds said. “Not only do you have to be balanced to win a championship but also have depth to double point and that’s what we’ve been able to do these last two years.”

Clinton-Massie was fourth in the league meet.

The Clinton-Massie quartet of Weston Carpenter, Carter Frank, Tye Phipps and Marty Kreider ran second to WHS in the 4×100-meter relay, the top finish on the day for the Falcons.

Malik Scott held down the sprints for the Hurricane. He won the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash and took part in the winning 4×100-meter relay along with Zainne Cowin, Blaize Johnson and Adrien Cody.

Trevor Billingsley was the distance maven, collecting first-place hardware in the 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs.

The Hurricane performed well in the field and had plenty of depth on the track to comfortably outdistance the six-team field.

“The leadership and dominance of Malik Scott, Trevor Billingsley and Brett Brooks have been special to have and will be greatly missed after this season,” Reynolds said of his senior trio.
