HOBART | The 70th annual Hobart Little 5 showcased a sparkling Brickyard track, as well as two new high schools competing in the meet.

South Central and Times No. 10 Boone Grove were the new teams at the Little 5, joining No. 4 Hobart, No. 7 Lowell, Griffith, and River Forest for a six-team affair to more than atone for the absence of now-defunct traditional entrant Wirt.

So is it still the Hobart Little 5 or now the Little 6?

"We're hosting five schools," Hobart AD Bob Glover said, "so it's still the Little 5."

The Red Devils ruined the Brickies' first Little 5 at the new track by repeating as meet champs, taking first with 171.75 points. Hobart came in second with a score of 162.50, followed by Boone Grove (62), River Forest (56.50), Griffith (28) and South Central (12.25).

Lowell's Ray Skamay won the 110-meter hurdles race with a time of 14.83 later took the 300 hurdles with a time of 38.83.

"Our coach talked to us on the ride here about defending our win last year," Skamay said. "We lost to Hobart in a dual (meet) two weeks ago by about 10 points, so we had a lot of incentive today."

The Brickies' Ryan McGuire (14 feet) and Kyle Reid (11-0) finished 1-2 in the pole vault to give Hobart their first win on the new track. Jarvis McMillian, who ran at Wirt last year, had a big win in the 100 dash with a time of 10.80. McMillian also won the 200 and 400 individually for the Brickies to earn meet MVP honors.

Brent Halloway won the 1,600 with a time of 4:48.47.

"I'm pretty pumped because that's a personal best for me," Halloway said. "We want to win the Little 5 since it's the first one on our new track. We're pretty focused today."

The Wolves were the first team to win an event, setting a school record with a time of 8:21 in the 3,200 relay. Senior Dan Hartwig and sophomore John Wallington led the way for Boone Grove.

"This was only the second time the four of us ran together," Wallington said. "We're pretty pumped to be able to get a school record so early in the year. We'll have several chances to break it again."
