Boys track finishes in sixth place

May 14, 2003

The Baldwin High School boys track team turned in another strong showing, finishing sixth in the 19 team field at Wellsville High School's annual Redbud Relays on Friday.

The team was led by its long distance runners with three Baldwin competitors finishing in the top five. The three were freshman Keith Cowart, junior Phil Wagner and senior Brayton Gladhart, placing first, third and fifth, respectively.

Other top finishers were junior Micah Mason and senior Brian Lauridsen finishing second and fifth, respectively, in the 200-meter dash. Sophomore Zac Towns also contributed, winning the 800- meter run.

"This year's been different," said Mason. "The sprinters have been contributing a lot more this year than last."

"The throwers aren't doing as well without Hugh (Murpy) and Eric (Brown), but we're trying our hardest and the best we can," said sophomore Luke Halford, referring to the duo who dominated weight events last year as seniors and who are both at Division I colleges this year.
