The 800 relay team of Toney Lock, Ashley Holicek, Ellen Buckley and Jessica Rupnow dominated the race in 1:42.81, more than two seconds ahead of runner-up Milwaukee Riverside. Hamilton is the defending state champion in the 800 relay, and only Lock was not in that foursome.
Two other teams finished second. The 1,600 relay unit featured Buckley, Katie Pollari, Ashlyn Paulson and Rupnow, while the 400 team included Casey Allen, Rupnow, Holicek, and Lock.
Also qualifying for state was Shannon Burke, who finished second in the pole vault with an 11-foot effort.
Hamilton’s girls took seventh with 48 points. The boys scored 19 and took 14th in a very tough sectional, dominated by Arrowhead.
