SANDY — Barlow senior Conrad Greeley won double titles to help the Bruin boys to a fifth-place team finish at Saturday's Sandy Invitational.

Greeley spent the morning alternating between the long jump runway and the pole vault pit.

Greeley won the long jump at 19-8, overtaking Liberty's Rashid Muse in the fourth round of jumps. Tanner Davisson challenged in the fifth round, but the tape measure came up an inch short of Greeley's top effort.

Greeley four legal jumps all landed within six inches of each other.

The pole vault became a two-person showdown between Greeley and Liberty's Jaxson Lake as the bar was raised to 13 feet. Greeley stayed in contention with a third-attempt clearance at that height, then trotted to the end of the runway and got over the bar at 13-6 on his first try for the win.

Greeley accounted for 20 team points.

Also in the field, Barlow's Nathaniel Koenig was fourth in the discus. Logan Lafey (200) and Colin Betherum (800) each placed fifth for Barlow's best finishes on the track.

Damascus Christian's Matt Mitchell came in third in the high jump.
