GREENVILLE — The Piqua boys track and field team finished second at a tri-meet at Greenville Tuesday, while the girls finished third.

“I think we are ahead of where we were last year and it showed,” Piqua boys coach Scott Kaye said. “We also have an even distributions between the sprints, distance and field events, which shows our balance.”

The boys got wins from Tate Honeycutt, 100 (11.78); Jalen Hudgins, 400 (55.60); and Andy Mayse, 3,200 (10:56.87).

“Tate (Honeycutt) had a real strong night,” Kaye said. “Jalen (Hudgins) ran a great open 400 and Andy (Mayse) runs like a veteran.”

For the girls, Hannah Went swept the 100 hurdles, 17.25; and 300 hurdles, 52.43.

Went also teamed with Teija Davis, Madison Evans and Danajha Clemons to win the 1,600 relay (4:48.99).

Also winning were Ansleigh Spradlin, long jump, 13-1; Courney Bensman, 800, 2:45.44; and Evans, discus, 91-9.

“Last night pointed out some aspects that we need to really focus on but also surprised ourselves doing other things well,” Piqua coach Erika Butler said. “Although we have more girls this year we are still fairly young and inexperienced and over time our young athletes will become more comfortable with starts, handoffs, etc.

“Freshman placer Ansleigh Spradlin surprised herself at long jump clinching the first place spot with a 13-01 jump. Our veteran athletes did a great job last night with several first place finishes and a few third place finishes.”

Piqua was shorthanded in a few events.

“We have a few athletes out due to injuries and we are excited to get them healthy and back in the line up,” Butler said. ” However, I have to give props to these girls for being willing to step into any role asked of them. We have girls who have never done events stepping up as well as throwers entering running events and doing a great job. These girls are determined and willing to do whatever is asked of them to benefit their team.”

Piqua will run at Northmont Saturday
