Class AA Track: Winfield boys regain title, girls win fifth in a row

Meet results

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Both Class AA state track championship trophies will once again reside at Winfield High School. The Winfield boys pulled away from defending champion Point Pleasant late on Saturday afternoon, claiming their first title since 2022.

The Generals were paced by individual high point champion Justin Lipscomb. He won the 3200 meter run on Friday and followed that up with a win in the 1600 meter in a state record time (4:13.77) and a victory in the 800 meter. Winfield also collected two more wins on Saturday. Chase Massey won the 100 meter run by .02 seconds and their 4×400 relay team closed out the meet with another victory.

Runner-up Point Pleasant collected one win on Saturday. Reece Hunt raced to victory in the 110 hurdles.

The Frankfort Falcons finished third in the team competition. Cohen Arbogast won the 400 and 200 meter runs and the Falcons scored another victory in the 4×200 relay.

East Fairmont’s Dakota Dammyer swept the throwing events. He won the discus on Saturday by nearly 20 feet with a toss of 171 feet, 7 inches. Elsewhere in field events, Nicholas County’s Isaiah Miner won the high jump and Poca’s Landon Coleman won the long jump.

Back on the track, Weir won the 4×100 relay and Roane County’s Lane Watson defended his title in the 300 hurdles.

Just like Williamstown in Class A, the Winfield girls won their fifth consecutive state championship. The Generals had only one event win on Saturday but their depth in several events showed as they scored 99.83 points. Carlie Sibold won the 100 meter run for WHS.

Oak Glen finished as the Class AA runner-up. Hannah Kliner won the 1600 meter on Saturday after winning the 3200 meter on Friday. Kensington McConnachie also collected a win for Oak Glen in the long jump.

Weir finished in third place. Olivia Baker was a double-winner with victories in the 100 and 200 meters. Their 4×400 relay team also collected a victory as well.

Grafton came in fourth. Hadley Horne won the 300 hurdles and she finished as the individual high point champion in Class AA. Emily Viani added a win for the Bearcats in the 800 meter.

Other event victories included the Bluefield 4×100 relay team, the Fairmont Senior 4×200 relay team, Poca’s Kendra Dunbar in the shot put, Nitro’s Isabella Cowger in the discus and Lincoln’s Hannah Rowan in the 400 meter.
