Madison's Emily Holland won the high jump for the Lady Cubs' top finish at the Hoosier Hills Conference girls track and field championships Tuesday at Jeffersonville.
Holland, a 6-foot-3 sophomore, jumped 5 feet, 2 inches to win the event and remain unbeaten on the season.
Holland's win proved to the highlight of the night for Madison, which placed seventh overall with 60.5 points. Floyd Central won the team championship with 141 points.
"Obviously this wasn't the team results we wanted tonight. Coming into the meet we knew we could be a top four team, so to get seventh was disappointing," Madison coach Mark Seib said. "Emily hasn't lost all season so this win is very deserving. She's a hard worker and doesn't complain. She did get pulled in a few directions by doing the discus and hurdles tonight but she still stayed focused to claim the victory in the high jump."
Other top finishes for Madison were: Tealsee Harris, second, pole vault, 9-6; Emily Ward, third, pole vault, 9-0 and fourth, high jump, 4-8; Macky Hecox, third, discus, 117-03 and fourth, shot put, 32-5; Gabby Nay, Olivia Crozier, Hannah Miller and Katie Hartman, fourth, 3200 relay, 10:43.17; Ashlee Allen, fifth, 400 dash, 1:04.30; and Allen, Raven Lee, Hartman and Taylor Hysell, fifth, 1600 relay, 4:28.50.
Team scores were: Floyd Central, 141; New Albany, 85; Seymour, 84; Columbus East, 81; Jeffersonville, 77.5; Jennings Co., 71; Madison, 60.5; and Bedford North Lawrence, 24.
