Albemarle’s girls indoor track team finished fourth at the Class 5 state meet Tuesday night with the Patriots getting a huge outing from senior Arianna DeBoer who won her second-straight 3200-meter state title. 


DeBoer also ran a leg of the Patriots’ state runner-up finish in the 4×800, anchoring the team of Caroline Hughlett, Courtney Hughlett and Reilly Bonham in a tight finish with champion Freedom-South Riding separated by less than a second. 


The Patriots also took third in the 4×400 and fourth in the 4×200 to bolster their fourth place effort in the team points race. 


Courtney Hughlett, a sophomore, also took fourth in the 100 while Caroline Hughlett took fourth in the 1600. Reese Bonham took seventh in the 1000 and Olivia St. Amand finished seventh in the 1600. Freshman Madelyn Gypson took seventh in the 3200. Albemarle’s Grace Gillenwater took fifth in the pole vault while Callie Vinzant took eighth in the 55-meter hurdles.
