Much like the Trenton Early Bird Relays two weeks ago, the Trenton Relays were dominated by the host school. Trenton captured both the girls’ and boys’ team titles at Thursday’s event at C.F. Russell Stadium.  The Lady Bulldogs collected 169 team points to best their closest challenger, Carrollton, by nearly 100 points, while the Trenton boys piled up 107 points, 17 ahead of Carrollton, who was runner-up in the boys’ standings as well. LADY BULLDOGS Despite being without their top two sprinters, Tenna Roberts and Thelma Guerrero, and not cashing in on as many gold medals as normally for a home meet, Trenton still took home the team title with ease. The Lady Bulldogs collected five first-place finishes, a slew of second-place finishes and double-placed in several events on their way to 169 points. Trenton’s relay teams were strong as the Lady Bulldogs won three of the four events. Trenton took gold in the 4x100-meter relay as Mason Hooyman, Cassidy Trump, Abbie Shuler and Hannah Mehrhoff combined to win with a time of 55.72. Trump, Jessi Westcott, Maycie Mayfield and Sidney Lynch combined to win the 4x800-meter relay with a time of 11:53.59 and Shayla Woodside and Whitley Richman teamed with Hooyman and Lynch, who replaced Roberts and Guerrero, to win the 4x400-meter relay with a time of 4:37.22. Individually, Salem Croy won the first-ever javelin event at the Trenton Relays, with a throw of 94-6, and Shayla Woodside won the long jump with a mark of 14-6.5. Several of Trenton’s traditional front-runners just missed out on gold medals, finishing runner-up. Richman was second in the high jump and the 100- and 300-meter hurdles; Ally Ockenfels was second in the shot put; Hooyman finished second in the pole vault; and Shayla Woodside was second in the triple jump. Other runners-up for the Lady Bulldogs included Lynch, second in the javelin; and the 4x200-meter relay team of Hooyman, Westcott, Shuler and Mehrhoff. Other placewinners for the Lady Bulldogs included Mehrhoff, third in the 800-meter run and third in the high jump; Mayfield, third in the pole vault and fourth in the 3,200-meter run; Trump, fourth in the long jump; Westcott, third in the 3,200-meter run and sixth in the triple jump; Croy, fifth in the discus and fifth in the shot put; Kayley Griffin, fourth in the 100-meter hurdles; Shuler, fifth in the 200-meter dash and fifth in the 100-meter dash; Karli Provorse, fourth in the 1,600-meter run; and Woodside, third in the 400-meter dash.

BULLDOGS The Trenton boys picked up three gold medals on the day, winning two relays and one individual event. Wyatt Whittle, Chase Marsh, Jonathan Lamp and Trey Shields combined to win the 4x400-meter relay with a time of 3:38.34 and the foursome of Whittle, Lamp, Shields and Austin Burkeybile won the 4x200-meter relay with a time of 1:35.31.
