A pair of newcomers stood out for the Hannibal track & field teams Tuesday during a dual at Jefferson City.

Sophomore Adreke Brumbaugh continued his first season on the high school track by earning first place in the boys 110 meter hurdles with a time of 16.33 seconds. He also was part of the 4x100 relay that won in 46.24.

Freshman Sydney Hart emerged to lead the Lady Pirates by winning the long jump at 14 feet, 6 inches and taking first in the pole vault by clearing 7 feet, 6 inches.

“Sydney is going to be tough,” Hannibal assistant coach Jeff Gschwender said. “She's just now coming off an injury from basketball and this was her first meet back.”

Jefferson City controlled much of the day, however, to win 113-33 on the boys side and 109-37 in the matchup of girls squads.

Hannibal combined to claim first in 11 events.

“It was a good meet for us,” Gschwender said. “We got some wins and we were extremely happy with the way they competed. It wasn't the prettiest conditions out there, but we were proud of the way the kids performed.”

Ayden Nichols won the 800 (2:04.73) and 1,600 (4:45.48) to continue his strong start to his senior campaign.

Fellow senior Paul Heidecker was the top high jumper at 5 feet, 8 inches.

Keaton Bartz, Kadin Morgan and Damien French joined Brumbaugh in the 4x100 to round out the top finishes among the Hannibal boys.

Autumn Bigsby, Alayna Pipkin, Elle Hudelson and Kyleigh Gibbs won the girls 4x800 (10:27.99) and 4x400 (4:25.79).

Pipkin raced to first in the 800 (2:30.81) for the second straight meet. 

Bigsby won the 400 in 1:05.74.

Hannibal is scheduled to host the Pirate Relays at Porter Stadium on Tuesday.
