The Greencastle girls' track team competed against North Putnam and Crawfordsville Thursday, finishing in first place with a total of 106 points. The Cougars placed third on the evening with 16 total points.

Picking up wins for Greencastle were Dee Wood, Melissa Ball, Erica Soster, Hannah Serlin, Becky Grivas, Laura Weatherford and Caitlyn Gannaway.

The team of Serlin, Felicia Barger, Kay Wood and Sara Culler won the 3,200 meter relay, while the team of Wood Weatherford, Jamie Patterson and English captured the 400 meter relay in a time of 52.0. Ball, English, Serlin and Weatherford combined to take the 1,600 relay with the time of 4:23.7.

"The wind made it very difficult to get good times in many of the events. Shorter distances seemed to fare much better than the longer distances," GHS head coach Garry Anderson said.

Anderson used a mixed lineup to give athletes the chance to compete and score in events they normally don't participate in.

"Junior Dee Wood had another good night in the 100 and 200. Her time in the 100 was 12.2. The time was a personal best," Anderson said. "Sophomore Melissa Ball is improving every meet and her times are very good for a girl out for track the first year."

Greencastle is currently ranked 22nd and will take on Terre Haute North at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, while North Putnam will host Rockville at 4:30 p.m. Monday.
