Webster, who was already going to the state in the high jump, placed second in the long jump and topped it off with a third-place finish in the 4x100-meter relay in Friday’s Division III regional track and field championships at Fairfield Union High School.

“Three events — bronze, silver and gold — wow,” said Webster. “I’m really excited to be going to state. To go in three events — I never would have imagined three events. It’s amazing, just a great time.”

Fowler set a meet record in the girls 3,200-meter run, taking first place with a time of 11:14.67 and beating last year’s state runner-up Tara Tollett of Shadyside.

“I’m really excited,” said Fowler, who took herself out of the 1,600 run to focus on the 3,200. “I never made it to state before. It’s been my goal all season.”

Fowler had to wait through a 90-minute rain delay before she had her chance.
