Senior Morgan Marshall medaled in two individual events and ran on a fourth place relay team to lead the James River delegation in last Saturday’s Region 2C track meet. The meet was held at James Madison University in Harrisonburg.
Marshall finished third in the triple jump with a leap of 22’ 6.” She was fifth in the 200 with a time of 28.05. Morgan also ran on the 4×100 relay team with Vanessa Lima, Ella Wright and Rachael Hix. That team finished fourth in 53.97.
Also earning an all-state medal for the girls was Gracie Harlow in the shot put. She finished sixth with a toss of 31’ 6 ½.” The girls were 16th as a team as Glenvar, a Three Rivers District co-member, won the state title.
For the boys, River’s only points were scored by Ben Bailey in the triple jump. Ben finished seventh with a jump of 40’ 5.” That gave the Knights three points for 27th overall as Stuarts Draft won the state championship.
