Congratulations to spring sports athletes

I want to take this time to congratulate the many spring sports athletes from throughout Wright County who have enjoyed some success in the postseason this spring.

Hartville’s 4x800-meter relay team leads the pack as the Eagles’ runners took second in the Class 2 State Championships. This was a wonderful way for them to finish their fantastic season.

Other track stand-out finishes at the state championships includes Hartville’s 4x400-meter relay team that earned All-State honors with an eighth place finish.

Mansfield’s Skylar Adams took fourth in the 1,600 meters.

Meanwhile, Norwood’s Annie Sullivan placed eighth in the Class 1 State Championships in the discus event.

Mountain Grove’s Jozey Sharp-MacPherson and Macey Penner both earned top four finishes in Sectionals to qualify for their state meet this week.

In baseball, the Norwood Pirates won the district championship in dominating fashion by outscoring two opponents by a 30-1 margin.

Again, congratulations to all of these young athletes for their outstanding performances for their programs.
