OAK HILL — Shady Spring earned a pair of team victories in last week's County Shop Invitational track and field meet at Oak Hill High School.

In the boys competition, the Tigers accumulated 114 points to outlast Oak Hill (97) and the rest of the field.

On the girls side, Shady Spring scored 154 to handle runner-up Oak Hill (124) and the other teams.

In boys individual events, Oak Hill's Michael Beasley and Shady Spring's Korbin Taylor and Joe Cantley were double-winners. Beasley captured the long jump (20 feet, 9 inches) and the high jump (6-0) for the Red Devils. For the Tigers, Taylor was victorious in the 1600 (4 minutes, 58.85 seconds) and 3200, while Cantley crossed first in both hurdles races: 110 (15.71) and 300 (41.52).

Shady Spring standout Erica Hegele was a triple-winner to pace the girls field. Hegele won the 100 hurdles (15.27), 300 hurdles (47.48) and long jump (15-9 1/4). She was also second in the 800 to Oak Hill's Kiya Babkirk, who won the event in 2:35.73.

Oak Hill's Tori Mackowiak was a two-time individual winner. Mackowiak claimed victories in the 200 (27.02) and 400 (1:00.85).

Fayetteville's Liz Rahall won the 3200 and was runner-up in the 1600 (6:15.37).

The Oak Hill girls were victorious in four of five relays on the night. They were as follows:

• 4x100 (Georgia White, Madison James, Marcayla King, Shannon Farrow), 54.15

• 4x200 (Georgia White, Madison James, Marcayla King, Tori Mackowiak), 1:56.99

• 4x400 (Samiah Lynch, Tori Mackowiak, Kiya Babkirk, Georgia White), 4:42.21

• 4x800 (Kiya Babkirk, Eden Gilkey, Samiah Lynch, Morgan Wills).

"Both teams performed great," said Oak Hill head coach George Smith. "I was really impressed with Seth Crosier in the mile and Mason Harp in the mile and 3200.

"On the girls side, all the usual athletes were great (Tori Mackowiak, Georgia White, Morgan Wills). But I had some surprises in the girls high jump. Destiny Minor, Amanda Flint and Alina Mackowiak all placed in the high jump and gave us a pretty good boost in score right out of the gate."

Oak Hill will compete at Independence on Friday. "A good week of work will help us out," said Smith.

Up next for Fayetteville is the Liberty Invitational on April 16.
