Eagles run away from the Hawks

In its first home dual meet of the season, Zionsville’s boys’ track team literally ran away from the competition.

On Tuesday, March 27, the Eagles dominated Decatur Central at St. Vincent’s Health Field, taking all but two field events in a convincing 110-21 win.

The visiting Hawks only won the long jump behind Jalen Miller and the shot put behind Lucayus Moneil, who threw seven and a half feet further than his nearest competitor. The rest of the night was all Zionsville.

“We were looking for improvement from the last meet and we were able to see that in most events,” Zionsville coach Gabe Porras said. “We realize that at this point in the season it is all about improvement.”

After a fifth place finish in last season’s state meet, including another individual championship by Shane Mikesky in the 110 meter hurdles, the Eagles were hit heavy by graduation losses. Tuesday night the entire team performed well, sweeping the track portion of the evening with ease.

Rayn Stack was a dual individual winner in the 100 and the 200. Sam Berger was also a dual winner for Zionsville, taking the 1600 and 3200 with ease. In the 3200 Berger bested the field by over half a minute.

“We were real pleased with our improvements in the 200, discus, 800 and 3200,” Porras said. “Our 4x100 had some great hand-offs today as well.”

Those three relay teams were impressive, as the closest finish of the night came in the 4x100 relay. Adam Kern, Stack, Josh Woodard, and Matt Geiser needed that expert timing in handoffs to squeeze out a victory by eight one-hundredths of a second.

Trevor Adkinson showed his improvement in the discus with a throw of 133 feet, 2.5 inches. Alex Sibila won the won the high jump, while Jordan Weeks took the pole vault for Zionsville’s final win of the evening.

The Eagles now have approximately two weeks off before heading to Southport on Wednesday, April 11, for a dual meet.
