FULTON Rayshan Clark scored 34 points, including a win in the long jump, to help lead the Indian River boys track and field team to its second consecutive Section 3 Class A title on Friday at Fulton High School.
Indian River finished with 110 points, while Jamesville-DeWitt tallied 105½ points for second place out of 14 schools. It was the third year the meet came down to those two teams, according to Indian River assistant coach Bob Kuba.
This time the meet hinged on the last event, the triple jump, during which Clarks second-place finish and Darrius Bryants third place elevated the Warriors to victory.

Both programs have a lot of respect for each other, Kuba said.
