NEW CONCORD — Races in track can be determined in fractions of a second, but this was splitting hairs.

The South Point Lady Pointers’ junior Tori Koukos was fourth in the 100-meter hurdles during the second day of the Division II regional track meet Saturday in a race determined by the 1,000ths of a second.

Koukos and Unioto’s Tamia Mills had rounded off times of 16.24 and tied for fourth. Koukos’ actual time was 16.231 seconds while Mills ran a 16.239.

The top four finishers in each event qualify for the state meet next Friday and Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus.

Chesapeake senior Jordan Porter — who qualified for the state meet in the shot put on Thursday — won the discus with a personal-best toss of 136-feet.

Porter was second in the shot put at 42-7.

Rock Hill sophomore Seth Miller was sixth in the 3200-metger run at 10:15.95 while South Point junior Brady Sloan tied for sixth in the high jump as he cleared 6-3.

The Pointers’ 4×100 and 4×200 relay teams were both seventh at 45.4 seconds and 1:34.27 seconds, respectively.

Both teams were comprised of juniors Gage Townson, Mason White and James Leonard and sophomore Stephen Wagoner.

Finishing ninth were Rock Hill junior Maddie Malone in the pole vault at 9-feet, Chesapeake senior Taylor Martin in the long jump at 15-2.25, and Fairland junior Jessica Price in the 800 meters with a 2:24.44 time.
