MAYSVILLE, Ohio — Another event cut short because of weather, but the Lady Eagles still had time to claim two individual championships and two runner-up finishes at the Dan Adams Classic, on Friday.

EHS senior Alia Hayes earned both of the Lady Eagles’ championships, winning the discus throw with a distance of 124 feet, 6 inches, and taking the shot put with a distance of 37-6.25. Hayes’ margin of victory was 10-2 in the discus and 1-1.5 in the shot put.

Eastern senior Laura Pullins was second in the 400m dash with a time of 1:02.3, just 1.27 seconds off of the pace.

The Lady Eagle relay team of Pullins, Jessica Cook, Ally Durst and Taylor Parker was second in the 4x800m relay with a time of 10:07, an even 17 seconds behind the winning quartet for Westerville Central, but more than 40 seconds ahead of the rest of the field.
