Devil tracksters take down Franklin

By From page B1 | May 02, 2013

Each Davis High track and field squad had a pair of double winners in beating Franklin in Wednesday’s final Delta Valley Conference meet of the regular season. But it was the Blue Devil girls who used several medal-stand sweeps to post the biggest margin of victory at Ron & Mary Brown Stadium, downing the Wildcats, 113-21.

The DHS boys, meanwhile, defeated FHS, 88-32.

For the local girls, Rose Stephens won both hurdles events (100 and 300), while Ellie Eaton also doubled, crossing first in the 100 meters and the 200 meters, where Devils took each of the top seven spots.

The Davis girls were feeling particularly springy as they also filled the leaderboards in the high jump, the long jump, the triple jump and the pole vault. Ameila Otto-Cutting tied Caitlin Mazzoleni in leaping the highest, Joseena John went the longest, Zoe Hunt-Murray captured the triple jump and Courtney Meyer vaulted over everyone.

Other Blue Devil girls wins came from Han-ah Sumner (400), Fiona O’Keeffe (800), Sophie Meads (1,600) Guilia McIsaac (3,200) and both relay squads (4×100 and 4×400).

DHS’ Alexander McIntyre matched Eaton’s sprint double, while Nick Denton picked up victories in both shot put and discus.

The Devils boys also won both relay races and triumphed on the track in the 300 hurdles (Ian McKillap), 3,200 (Charlie Harris), 1,600 (Jack Scranton), 800 (Brian Song) and 400 (Blake Croft). The leaderboard in the 1,600 featured local runners in the top nine spots.

In field events, DHS’ David Matthews captured the high jump and Spencer LaHaye was the pole vault winner.
