WHEATFIELD | Kankakee Valley’s sophomore sprinter Leanna Mulloy was catching her breath moments after breezing to a win in the 200 after taking the 100 earlier in the night — both in record time.

K.V. coach Lane Lewallen reminded his star to keep hydrated since she still had one more race.

It was a one-two punch in several events that boosted the Kougars in defending their own sectional on Tuesday, outdistancing the field with 149 points to runner-up West Central’s 73. Hebron took fourth with 67.

“Our team depth again was very solid, and we’re very pleased with the results,” Lewallen said.

Mulloy still had one more relay to run on the night, and she was on the winning 400 relay. It was a dynamic night for Mulloy and K.V. after winning the 1600 relay and the crown.

“It was beautiful weather,” Mulloy said.“Anyone’s ultimate goal is to make it to state. This year we have a great chance at it, not only our individuals but our 4x400 has a great shot.”

Dayton Dellahan and Kara Gouwens finished first and second, respectively, in the 400, while Gabrielle Martin took second to Mulloy in the 200. Martin placed third in the 100.

“When you do that, that is huge,” Lewallen said. “Those are huge points, so those are very big events for us absolutely.”

Rensselaer’s Chelsie Meeks won the discus for the third year in a row and tied the sectional record of 134-5 SET by Valpo’s Kelly Compton in 2002.

“I wanted to better it,” said Meeks, who placed fifth in the state last year. “I wanted to get that record and just try and get a good seed for the regional next week.”

Meeks is nursing a MCL strain and couldn’t take a full spin. She’s expected to be cleared to do that at the regional. Her ultimate goal is to win state.

“Oh yeah, for sure,” she said.
