London Middle School continued to rack up points during track season as it recently hosted a meet involving Worthington Christian and Tecumseh.

Both squads finished third, but several students earned points for their team by their final placements.

For the girls, Kierra Fraysier placed in both the 800-meter and 1,600-meter runs. Others earning points were Brooklyn Sims (high jump), Natalie Boyd (long jump), Julia Harpold (discus), and Alyssa Fox (400). The girls also placed in the 800 and 1,600 relays.

The boys were led by a trio of athletes who each placed in two events — Jake Belmont (110 hurdles and pole vault), Daniel Keller (long jump and 100), and Jimmy Cleaver (800 and 1,600m). Ayden Cooper (discus) and Jacob O’Neill (shot put) also tallied points for the Red Raiders. They also got points in all three sprint relays — 400, 800 and 1600m.

On Thursday, April 12 the teams traveled to compete in the Washington Middle School Invitational.

First-place finishes were earned by Isaiah Jones (110 hurdles and shot put) and Cooper in the long jump.

Other point-gatherers for the boys were Zavior Gordon (100 and 200), Jimmy Brayshaw (200), Cleaver (800, 1,600), Brendan Bryan (110 hurdles, high jump), and Cooper (discus). The Raiders also placed in all three relays.

For the girls, the highest placement was a second-place finish in the 4×400 relay consisting of Corrinne Eisler, Fraysier, Sims, and Fox. Other placers were Sims (100, high jump), Fraysier (200 hurdles), and the remaining two relays.
