Unioto’s boys team and Zane Trace’s girls took the top honors at the 30-team Piketon Invitational.
On the boys side, the Shermans edged Fairland — a team that had beaten Unioto earlier in the season — 66-77.
“That means we now have a winning record against every team in the Southeast District going into the SVC and district tournaments in two weeks,” Unioto coach Matt Paxton said. “This also means that the varsity boys now have a winning record against every team in our region except No. 3 Granville.”
Individually, Fairland’s Raine Wireman won the race with a 16:26, but Unioto’s Ethan Richter was second with a 16:31. Zane Trace’s Corey Miles was third (16:49), followed by teammate Pierce Mowery (16:55) in fifth place. Piketon’s Kane Dixon (16:55) was sixth, and Unioto’s David Magda (ninth, 17:01) and Brenson Zambarrano (10th, 17:04) rounded out the top 10.
In team scoring, Zane Trace was with 153 points. Piketon was sixth with 167 and Chillicothe eighth (213).
For the girls, the Pioneers won the meet with a 53, two points ahead of Fairland.
Zane Trace’s Jessie Proehl won the race with an 18:36, with Unioto’s Kinkela Harkins finishing fourth in 19:41. Zane Trace teammates packed the middle of the top 10 with Kim Wolfe (19:53) at fifth and Emily Joosse (19:54) in sixth.
