2 county boys advance to track state finals


Seymour's Mitch McCoy and Brownstown Central's Hayden Stuckwisch earned trips to the boys track and field state finals after their performances on Thursday in the Bloomington North Regional.

McCoy, a junior, placed second in the 800-meter run with a time of 1:58.87. Bloomington South's Jordan Huntoon won in 1:57.35.

Even though the top three in each event move on to state, any athlete that meets a state standard advances, too. That's what Stuckwisch, a senior, and three others did in high jump.

Alex Olson of Bloomington South and Tevin Wolf of Eastern (Pekin) each went 6-6 and placed first and second, respectively, while Stuckwisch and Bloomington South's Colin Reilly jumped 6-4¾. Reilly took third and Stuckwisch fourth.

Also scoring points for Seymour were Zach Schlatterer (fifth in 110 hurdles), Cody Campbell (fifth in discus) and the 400 relay team of Schlatterer, Hunter Klakamp, Jordan Kleber and Ethan Perry (fifth).

Ryan Franklin (sixth in the 1,600) and Logan Skaggs (tie for seventh in pole vault) scored for Brownstown, while Jarrod Royalty (seventh in 300 hurdles) was Crothersville's only scorer.

Bloomington South won the team title with 92 points, while Bloomington North was second with 65. Seymour tied for ninth with 20 points, Brownstown was 20th with 9 1/2 and Crothersville tied for 27th with two.

The boys state finals are on May 31 at Indiana University in Bloomington.
