LEWISTON — Sarah Moore’s two event wins spurred the Lisbon/Oak Hill girls track and field team to a dominating performance and the Class C state championship Saturday at Lewiston High School.

Moore launched herself 17 feet, 2 inches to win the long jump, and she added another state championship by running the 100-meter dash in 12.81 seconds.

The Greyhounds racked up 119 points. Orono (82.5) and Maine Central Institute (73) were distant second and third, respectively.

Winslow won the boys title with 86 points. Orono was again the runner-up, with 74.5 points, and the Lisbon/Oak Hill boys placed third with 70.

Kiana Goldberg won the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 15.81 and placed second in the 300 hurdles. She also ran a leg of the Greyhounds’ winning 4×100-meter relay, along with Emily Westland, Kayla Cooper and Gabby Chessie.


Chessie also finished second in the 200-meter dash and took third in the long jump and in the triple jump.

Cooper won the 400-meter in 1:01.56 and placed third in the 200 and 100.

In the field events, Hall-Dale’s Iris Ireland started the day with a win in the javelin by heaving a throw of 123-04, a school record.

Carrabec’s Cheyenne Cahill won the shot put with a top toss of 34-04, saying afterwards that the winning throw felt “effortless.”

The distance events were kicked off with a battle in the 1,600-meter run between Houlton’s Teanne Ewings and Orono’s Ruth White, the two runners’ third meeting of the season.

Ewings bettered White by 63 hundredths of seconds, winning with a time of 5:02.47 to White’s 5:03.10. Ewings also won the 800 in 2:24.77.

White played a crucial role in the Orono girls’ second-place team finish. She also won the 3,200 by running a Class C state meet-record time of 10:46.38 and helped Orono take first in the 4×800 relay (10:26.59).

In the boys competition, Winslow’s Joseph Richards won the 400 (51.88) and finished in third in the 800 (2:06). Richards said he felt added pressure because his teammate dropped out before the 400, but he came up clutch.

Owen Conner Self had a big day for the Orono boys. He won the 110 hurdles (16.14), finished second in the 300 hurdles (42.42) and third in the pole vault (11-0).

Sumner’s Kaleb Colson won two distance events, the 1,600 in 4:35.96 and the 800 in 1:59.53.
