Follow Daily Reporter:

The Greenfield-Central girls track team won its second trophy in as many days Saturday, claiming the Greensburg Invitational.

Two days after winning the Pendleton Heights Invite, G-C recorded 129 points to outlast Shelbyville (118) and Oldenburg Academy (84).

Maddie Wise broke her own school record to win the 100 hurdles in 15.54 seconds. Savannah Girolami won the 400 in meet record time of 59.8. Girolami also prevailed in the long jump, and the 400 relay of Sammie McCoy, Amanda Flora, Ally Young and Shelby Bowmer won, too.

“I am proud of our team,” G-C girls coach Jan Hacker said. “We were exhausted coming off of Thursday’s meet, and it took all of us working together with many different people stepping into different roles to get this win.”

On the boys side, the Cougars (85) were third behind Shelbyville (129.5) and Lawrence Central (113).

Austyn Tift (100, 200), Scott Prewitt (400) and Zach Phillips (discus) won blue ribbons for G-C.

MV girls 6th at Zionsville

Olivia Coleman was first in the 400 and second in the 200 as the Mt. Vernon girls took sixth at the Zionsville Invitational Friday.

Phylisia Donaldson was second in the 100 hurdles and third in the 300 hurdles.

Westfield won the meet with 111 points. Zionsville (110) and Brownsburg (101) were second and third. New Palestine was sixth.

“The princesses fared very well in this highly competitive Zionsville Invitational. There were eight state champions in 2013 that ran in this meet last year,” MV girls coach Tim Leonard said. “This is the closest meet we can compete in that parallels the Ben Davis Regional.”

The MV boys placed seventh out of 10 teams. Wyatt Gutierrez was first in the discus.
