The honors continue to roll in for the Westminster boys and girls indoor track teams.

The boys squad, which captured the school's first Class 3A-4A indoor state championship last month, placed two runners in four events on the Central Maryland Conference first team and one of its relay teams.

Senior Jared Craig, The Sun's Carroll County co-Top Performer and the state titlist in the high hurdles, earned first-team berths in the high jump and the high hurdles.

Senior Jesse O'Connell, another co-Top Performer and the state 800-meter champion, garnered first-team honors in the 500-meter and 800-meter events.

The Owls' 3,200 relay squad also was a first-team pick.

Senior Kiara Adams, The Sun's Top Performer among county girls, led two teammates and a relay squad to first-team conference honors.

Adams, who recently took third in the shot put at the National Scholastic Track and Field Championships in New York, was named to the first team in the shot put.

Senior Mandy Komar and sophomore Tara Callegary also were selected to the first team in the 800 and 3,200, respectively, and the Owls' 3,200 relay squad was crowned a first-team choice.

North Carroll sophomore Katie Riley also earned first-team All-Conference honors in the 55 and high hurdles.
