GREENVILLE – The Green Wave boys took first place in the Greenville Invitational track and field meet with the Lady Wave coming in with a strong second place finish in the girls meet.

“It was a great night for Greenville track and field, boys champion and girls runners up,” said Greenville coach Bill Plessinger. “You always want to do well in home invitationals and the kids really performed.”

The GHS boys made it back-to-back first place finishes after taking first place in Tuesday night’s Sidney Invitational.

“Can’t remember in my 20 years the boys winning two invitationals in one week,” stated Plessinger. “Hopefully that early success will provide motivation to keep working hard and get even better. I think they are liking winning.”

The Greenville boys took first with 156 points. the Wayne Warriors took second with 147 points, Eaton finished third with 146.33 points, Butler came in fourth at 108, Fairborn took fifth with 50.33, Troy Christian sixth at 50.33, Wayne B seventh with 26 and Greenville B finishing in eighth place with 14.33 points.

Vandalia Butler Lady Aviators took the top spot on the girls side with 171 points, Greenville finished second with 153 points, Eaton third with 147, Wayne fourth at 91, Troy Christian fifth with 51 points, Fairborn sixth at 39 and Wayne B coming in seventh with 21 points.

“I want to mention that the girls finishing runner up to a very good Vandalia Butler team was a great accomplishment,” Plessinger stated. “Despite the cold and rain coming in, it didn’t phase this great group of athletes. They all really did a fantastic job.”

“Several athletes set new PR’s and Riley Hunt broke her own school record of 13′ with a vault of 13’4,” noted Coach Plessinger. “She made a great attempt vaulting at 13’7 to break the state record of 13’6.5.”

I also want to mention double winners in the girls, Izzy Rammel in the 800 and 1600, and Emma Klosterman in the high jump and long jump, great nights for both.”
