HUBER HEIGHTS — The Butler Aviators sent a limited squad to the Wayne Invitational on Thursday and Friday to face regional-level competition in the 43 team field.
Daiton Sharp looks poised to make another run at State and pole vaulter Dalton Shepler turned in another strong performance.
Sharp won the triple jump competition with a jump of 46 feet, 6 inches. He also placed second in the long jump, the event he qualified to for State in a year ago, at 22-01.5.
Shepler continued his strong spring by going 14-02 to place fifth in pole vault.
Butler’s distance medley relay team of Long Lin, Gabe Warren, Ryan Wertz, and Adam Gunkel made a strong push in the second haf of the race and finished fifth in 10:47.96.
Lin also placed eighth in the 1600 meter run in 4:28.03.
Butler’s Abbie Schoenherr was the Aviators’ only girl to score points. She placed sixth in the 800 meter run in 2:18.28.
