Boys track and field

Sectional to resume today

The boys track and field sectional at Columbus North was delayed due to storms Thursday, with coaches ultimately deciding to continue the meet today.

Field events began at 5:45 p.m. with the 4×800 relay starting a few minutes before its scheduled time of 6.

The relay packed drama as Columbus North senior Reese Kilbarger-Stumpff, the reigning state individual cross country champion, held off Trojans junior Griffin Hennessy the final two laps.

Center Grove’s time of 7:55.75 was just short of the Bull Dogs’ 7:55.40.

It was the lone event to be completed before activities were stopped at 6:11 p.m. and athletes, coaches and spectators were instructed to seek shelter. At approximately 7:40, the decision was made to postpone the meet.

Field events resume at 6:30 p.m., while running events start at 7.
