   Greensburg’s boys and girls teams both finished fourth at Ashland’s Tom Gilmore Relays April 15, while Haviland’s girls took seventh, the boys eighth on a blustery day that included wind gusts of up to 50 m.p.h.
   Already without the high jumping and sprinting services of Grant Sirois this season—he again pulled a hamstring in the first meet of the season last month—the Rangers missed the points senior David Cesmat would have likely landed in the hurdles.  Having tweaked a quad the day before in practice, Cesmat sat this one out, as he did later in the week at Montezuma.
    GHS was still able to come up with 60 points, just eight behind third place finisher Bucklin.  South Gray won the 13-team event with a total of 103, while Ashland was close behind with 101.
    The Lady Rangers, meanwhile, finished with 74, just three behind Cimarron, but far behind winner Minneola which totaled a solid 131.  South Central was second with 86.
   Scoring for the Rangers were:  Adam Haskin, second in shot put with toss of 49’1.75”  Haskin also took silver in discus (134’10”) and javelin (128’4”)…Eric White, first in both triple jump (40’4”) and long jump (18’6.5”).  Ty Schaef, meanwhile, finished third in long jump (17’3) and fifth in the triple (36’11.5”).  Kenny Cesmat was fifth best in the shot with a toss of 39’2.25”, while Lane Allison captured third in the high jump with a leap of 5’8”.
   GHS girls’ points came from: Kacey Fulton, who was edged in both the 100 and 200 meter dashes by Minneola’s Kara Minor.  Fulton ran a 13.11 in the 100, compared to Minor’s 12.84, while finishing with a 27.45 200, second to Minor’s 27.19.  Fulton also took fifth in the 400, running the lap in 1:08.27.  Fulton’s younger sister Morgan grabbed second in the 300 meter hurdles at 51.79 while taking third in the 100-meter event at 18.37. 
   Lindsey Heft had another big day, with a 14’11” leap in the long jump that was good for second, and a third-place effort of 32’4” in the triple.  Heft also won the javelin with a season-best heave of 119’8”, 15 feet better than Cimarron’s Hanna Burl.  Megan Booth, meanwhile, took fifth in javelin at 85’9”, while getting silver in the discus at 101’5”, four feet behind Minneola’s Madison Riley.  Booth also was runner-up in shot at 34’1.25”.
   Haviland, as usual, scored in the distance events, the Lady Dragons being led by Katelin Holland, who won the 1600 meters in a time of 6:14.95.  Holland took second and third in the 800 and 3200 respectively, with times of 2:46.89 and 14:18.29.   Tina Emmersberger chipped in with a second-place finish in the 3200 at 13:58.41, or 28 seconds behind winner Tori Brass of South Central.  She also took fourth in the 1600 at 6:30.84.
   For the Haviland boys, Conner Drendel took third in the 1600 at 5:07.89 and fourth in the 800 with a time of 2:14.50.  He also anchored the 4X800 relay effort that took silver in a time of 9:14.53.  Sage Boman finished behind Drendel in fourth place in the 1600 at 5:12.23 while taking third in the 3200 at 11:22.37, Peyton Wade right behind him with an 11:54.28.  Tanner McFarland finished sixth in the 800 in a time of 2:17.13.
