SALEM – It was a record setting day for the Carrollton girls track team at last Friday’s Northeastern Buckeye Conference Track and Field Championships on a near perfect day at Rielly Stadium in Salem.

The Lady Warriors set six new NBC records, while placing second to Louisville. The Leopards won the final event of the day – the 4×400 relay – to capture the title 132-129.5 over the Warriors.

The Warriors held a slim 1.5 lead over the Leopards heading into the final event. Carrollton needed to finish second or higher to get the win, while Louisville needed to place first or second.

Louisville won and Carrollton finished in third in the event.

Senior Maddie Dunlap and sophomore Micah Donley each set two individual records and were on the record setting 3,200-meter relay team.

Junior Alivia Bentley set a new mark in the shot put.

Dunlap won the 1,600 and 3,200 meter runs with times of 5:02.2 and 11:04.4.

Donley won the 100, 200 and 400-meter sprints with record breaking times in the 100 with a time of 12.4 and 57.32 in the 400. She also won the 200 with a time of 25.43.

Dunlap and Donley were also members of the record breaking 3,200-meter relay team with Grace Bartlow and Allison Davis that finished with a time of 9:24.73.

Bentley’s throw of 44’4” broke the shot-put record set by Carrollton’s Abbey Wilson in 2014 of 40’11”. Bentley added a second place in the discus with a throw of 128’11”.

Placing second for the Warriors was Davis in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:22.66.

Placing third were Cindy Lewis in the 300 hurdles with a time of 48.96; the 4×400 meter relay team of Davis, Bartlow, Dunlap and Lewis; Layna Pasiuk in the 100 hurdles with a time of 16.65 and Jaci Pridemore in the high jump with a leap of 4’10”.

The Minerva Lady Lions placed a distant third with 98.5 points and did not have any individual champions.

Placing second for the Lions were Mackenzie Scott in the 3,200 with a time of 11:30; the 4×400 relay team of Sarah Carver, Ava Burman, Skylar Trussell and Amanda Kukunis.

The boys meet was even closer as Louisville finished with 104 points with Alliance placing second with 103.5.

Carrollton finished in the middle of the pack in fifth place with 72 points.

In the tightest race of the night, Carrollton senior Cole Lovett won a hard fought 1,600-meter run with a record breaking time of 4:14.18, just ahead of Louisville brothers Noah and Nick Chaplick with times of 4:15.18 and 4:17.32, which also broke the old record of 4:20.15 set in 2009 by Jarrod Williams of Louisville.

Senior Chase Flanagan recorded a second and third for the Warriors. He jumped 20’6.75” in the long jump and was third in the 200-meter dash with a time of 23.35.

Jace Miles finished third in the discus with a throw of 127’10” and fourth in the shot put with a throw of 42-feet even.
