CHILLICOTHE — By less than half a second combined, Minerva senior Connor Shingleton won two regional championships Saturday during the Division II track and field meet at Chillicothe. 

Shingleton won the the boys 800 meters and mile. His 1:57.38 in the 800 edged River View’s Sam Adams by three one-hundredths of a second. His 4:20.46 in the 1,600 bested John Glenn’s Chris Tooms by 42 one-hundredths. 

Tusky Valley’s Hannah Wyler did Shingleton one better by winning three events Saturday on the girls side. The senior won the 800, 1,600 and 3,200. Her win in the mile (4:56.37) was dominant, besting the field by more than 17 seconds. Wyler also anchored the Tusky Valley 1,600 relay of Ella McElwee, Cara Pipitone and Leah Bourquin to a third-place finish and a state berth.
