LeFever wins twice in abbreviated invitational
South Adams sophomore Drew LeFever won two of the nine events that were finished during the South Adams track and field invitational Friday night and broke a school record, but the meet was called short due to heavy lightning in the area.
All of the field events were completed, but the meet was called off after a second lightning delay around 9:15 p.m. The first delay came about around 7:30, but the meet resumed at 8:25.
Eastbrook was leading the boys and girls team scoring when the meet was called off. The Panther boys had 65 points while their girls had 70. Bluffton was in pursuit of the Eastbrook boys with 59 points, while Adams Central had 47 and South Adams 34. South Adams was closest to the Eastbrook girls with 54 points; Heritage was third with 36 and Woodlan fourth with 32.
No team awards were presented since the meet was incomplete. The girls’ 400-meter dash had one heat left when the meet was called.
LeFever, who had come close to the old school record of John Wanner at 144’8”, broke the mark with a throw of 153’7” with his third throw. He then broke the mark again with a throw of 155’6” on his final attempt. The throw earned him an easy first place as he was nearly 14 feet further than the next best throw.
LeFever added a shot put title to his credits with a throw of 44’9.5”.
Adams Central had two wins in the abbreviated meet, taking the 4 x 800 relay in 8:40.34 and the 4 x 100 relay in 44.99.
South Adams had earned a couple of firsts in the girls’ meet, taking the 4 x 800 relay easily in 10:53.00, and Alli Amstutz won the shot put with a throw of 39’6.5”.
Amstutz finished second in the discus at 99’0”, and Caroline Kloepper was a runner-up in the 100-meter dash in 13.4 seconds.
Adams Central had one runner-up finish from McKenna Macklin in the 100-hurdles in 17.09.
