Battery Creek’s girls finished seventh and state discus champion Michael Martello led the Dolphin boys to a ninth-place finish in the SCHSL Class 3A Track & Field Championships on Friday at Lower Richland High School.
Erica Tobin led Creek’s girls with a tremendous day, taking silver in the javelin, bronze in the 100-meter hurdles, and placing fourth in the high jump, and Keona Sanders claimed silver in the high jump.
Myra Smith also made a huge contribution, winning bronze in the 100 meters and placing sixth in the long jump and seventh in the triple jump. Kiara Wilson was eighth in the javelin.
Martello had a monster evening, winning the discus by nearly four feet with a mark of 157 feet, 2.5 inches, and taking silver in the shot put with a toss of 48-4.5 to finish behind Pendleton’s Ethan Jackson (49-11.5). Trevin Singleton placed fourth in the 110-meter hurdles for the Dolphins.
