Area Roundup - North girls fourth in 2A/3A West



* INDOOR TRACK


Paige O'Flaherty won the high jump and finished third in the 55 hurdles, while Jessica Hanlin finished second in both the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs Saturday as North Hagerstown's girls finished fourth out of 16 teams in the Class 2A/3A West Region indoor track meet at the HCC athletic complex.

O'Flaherty won the high jump with a leap of 4 feet, 10 inches as the Hubs' only girls region champion.

Hanlin ran the 1,600 in 5 minutes, 35.4 seconds and the 3,200 in 12:24.6. Stephanie Kurtz was third in the 3,200 in 12:34.2.

"Our distance girls, by far again, were dominant," North coach Craig Bathgate said. "We just didn't have the speed to match up with the Baltimore and D.C. schools. I'm still real proud of them. We had a lot of PRs (personal records) today."

Kaylynn Shoop was third in the pole vault, clearing 9 feet, while Sharnay Burnett was fourth in the shot put with a throw of 30-4.

Shot putter Alexa Suiter was dismissed from the team Thursday for unspecified reasons.

"That would have been 10 points (for a possible win in the shot put)," Bathgate said. "First (in the team standings) was 19 points ahead, so that wouldn't have mattered."

The boys team finished 10th, with Nick Reid winning the high jump in 6-4 to qualify for states.
