State meet: Winfield teams sweeps AA; Midland boys 3rd in AAA

By RICK RYAN HD MediaMay 19, 2019

CHARLESTON — One of the longest state track meets in history wasn’t short on drama.

Team titles in four of the six divisions weren’t decided until the final event Saturday, and one other nearly went down to the wire as the 105th state meet wrapped up on a sunny, mid-80-degree day at University of Charleston Stadium.

Winfield pulled off its second daily double in three years, edging Bridgeport by three points for the Class AA girls championship and coming from behind in the last few events to pass Fairmont Senior in the boys meet.

In AAA boys, Spring Mills settled a three-way battle by winning the meet-ending 4x400-meter relay and winding up with 71 points to edge Wheeling Park (68) and Cabell Midland (63) for its first-ever track title. In AAA girls, Ripley set a record in the 4x400 to close out an 82-80 decision over hard-luck Wheeling Park. It was one of 13 meet marks to fall Saturday.
