Zach Howlett is

Sectional Champion

  This year’s IHSAA Boys Track Sectional at Jeffersonville was held over two days due to inclement weather, but even heavy rains couldn’t stop Switzerland County Pacer Zach Howlett from excelling.

  Howlett, a senior who has dominated the throwing events throughout the year, did just that at the Sectional, as he was crowned the Sectional champion in the shot put champion with a personal best throw of 47’3”. He also qualified for the Regional in the discus, where he finished second overall with a distance of 130’8”.

  Other Switzerland County competitors included JW Goldsberry, who ran a personal best time of :23.94 to finish sixth overall in the 200-meter dash; and Cory Taulbee finished eighth overall in the 110-meter high hurdles with a time of :17.62.

  Ben Hicks ran a personal best time of 2:17.74 to finish 12th in the 800-meter run.

  The boys track Regional will be held tonight (Thursday) at Bloomington North High School.
