GEORGETOWN — The East Clinton boys track and field team finished fourth Wednesday at the Georgetown Invitational.

“We worked hard and stayed positive,” coach Steven Sodini said. “We definitely have a lot to work on. We need to get some more practice in a few of the more technical parts of the track meet, such as hand-offs, blocks and running form. I have 20-plus guys who want to get better and that is the best type of teasm a coach can ask for.

Wes Kidder was runnerup in both hurdles, the 110-meter highs and the 300-meter intermediate. He posted a personal best of 16.7 in the 110s. Kidder teamed with Joey Gray, Erik Moore and Brian Barnes to finish fourth in the 4×200-meter relay.

Thomas Wright was fourth in the discus and Barnes finished fourth in the 110 hurdles. Josh Jones was fifth in the 3,200-meter run and seventh in the 1,600-meter run. Kalob Williams was sixth in the 800-meter run. Ethan Ambrose was eighth in the 400-meter dash.

Nathan Crouch, Jones, Yankey and Williams were sixth in the 4×800-meter relay. Gray, Moore, Barnes and Anthony Osburn finished eighth in the 4×100-meter relay. Devin Henson, Yankey, Williams and Ambrose were seventh in the 4×400-meter relay.
