Tuesday night proved to be a great evening for a track meet! The sunshine was strong with intermediate clouds throughout the night proving to be a nice reprieve when they strolled by! The Stangs from the Wood came out strong and never relinquished the lead as they continue to improve individually and collectively as a team and beat the Stars from BNL 71-61! The team improves to 15-2 on the season, days before competing in a strongly fielded Mustang Invite this weekend!
Once again, EHS 4 x 8 team came out strong and started the meet off with a win. The team of Aydelott, Banister, Haskett, and Doering improved their time with a run of 9.02 flat!
Next up for the Stangs was the 110 hurdles. This will sound like a repeat of most meets, but once again, the hurdle boys continue to train hard, run well, and see PRâs with every meet! Joel Strickler ran a PR time of 17.37 to place 3rd and âNate Bolâ won the event with a PR time of 16.65. This is the 3rd meet in a row that these athletes have ran this race and PRâd!
The boyâs 100 meter dash also proved to be an exciting race! Bedfordâs stud sprinter (Wagner) left little opportunity for anyone else to take a blue ribbon as he continued his dominating season performance in both the 100 and 200 sprints! However, our sprinters took the opportunity to run against a state caliber competitor and also ran well. Prâing for the Mustangs was Hall (11.57), Hiatt (11.79), Flora (12.14), Raake (12.17), Bowman (12.40), and Cantrell (12.72).
Alex Michael and Zach Kovach ran the 1600 for the Stangs and finished 1st and 2nd. Michael ran a season best of 4.53.62 and Kovach was hot on his trail with a time of 4.59.18. Both runners wanted to be sub 5 and it was great to see both of them come out and compete and run well!
EHS 4 x 1 team was able to finish 2nd with a time of 45.50 and the B team for the Wood improved their season time. The team of Raake, Bolin, Strickler, and Strickland ran a 47.13, which was solid enough to best the B team from Bedford by over 1.5 seconds.
The open 400 saw 5 Stangs compete. Tyler McGlothlin (Timmy) ran a season best time of 54.74, followed by Aydelott (55.55), Poling (57.84), freshman Izaiah Doering ran his first ever open 4 and ran a strong 59.93, followed by Tyler Calvin (1.01.33) who we are attempting to convert into a 400-800 kid, taking him away from the pole vault.
The 300 hurdles saw the Stangs take 1str and 2nd. Tyler Strickland,âT Strickâ and Nathan Bolin proved to be too strong and beat out the best hurdler from BNL. Although Strickland did not PR he ran a strong race start to finish (43.92). Nate Bol knocked over .2 seconds off of his season best time (45.26) and finished the race in incredibly strong fashion, taking 2nd place during the last 2 hurdles of the race!
The boys 800 also saw 2 Stangs PR. Harrison Cottingham, coming off of a back injury, ran an impressive 2.08.53 in his first open 8 of the season and freshman John Burton, although spiked by another athletes spikes at some point in the race finished with a 2.29.19. Lucas Poling was put to a âMental toughness checkâ, as his jerk of a coach had him run the open 4 and turn right around and run the open 8. He ran tough and did not waiver from the challenge! This is the type of leadership and determination we need from all our athletes but specifically our seniors. I am very impressed!
PRâs were flying by in the Mustangs 200 meter dash. The race had 6 PR times by Stangs. Junior Cole Hall (24.07), Joel Strickler (25.08), Cole Flora (25.66), Sophomore Grant Raake (25.81), and freshmen Evan Cantrell (26.79) and Izaiah Doering (27.23), all improved their season times and ran well last night!
In what seems to be a strong trend, sophomore stud Austin Haskett continued his dominating distance performances as he PRâd in the 3200. Austin, coming off a huge day Saturday at Park Tudor, ran a PR time of 9.40.52 in the 3200 and paced the entire field. Also running in his 2nd long distance event of the evening (PR performance in the 1600), Zach Kovach placed 4th with a time of 11.50.69.
The boys 4 x4 team placed 2nd behind a strong BNL team. The team of Aydelott, Strickland, McGlothlin, and Cottingham ran a time of 3.39.65. The B team also ran a strong race and finished with a time of 3.56.37. That team was composed of athletes, Calvin, Banister, Bolin, and Doering, who was a last minute addition (big kudos to him for stepping up) due to Burtonâs injury in the 800.
Field events proved to be an area where the Mustangs paced well with the Stars! Noah Bise had a HUGE night and was a double winner in the long jump (20â0) and the high jump (6â0). Noah has hit a hot streak during the last 2 meets and is really starting to find his stride competing in both events!
Colton Bowman and Jason Ehrmann continue to show progress in Discus. Bowman threw 119â3.75 and Ehrmann threw a 115â5. Jt Waltz also showed improvement and threw a 93â11.5. Jordan Headdy also Prâd with a throw of 81â0. Boys shot put saw Waltz place 3rd with a throw 36â6 and also saw sophomores Eithan Jacobs (36â1.5) and Tyler Welty (35â4) PR on the evening also. Freshmen Jarret Sproul and Evan OâConnor continue to improve and both chucked the shot 29â3 and 28â11 for Prâs for the both of them!
Our vaulters performed well last night also, going 1st and 2nd! Wyatt Blake got back into the jump of things and hit an outdoor PR of 10â6 in the pole vault! Following suit, Rhys Fehrenbach and Caleb Waugh also PRâd. Fehrenbach cleared 9â6 and Waugh cleared 9â0! The Stangs are moving in the right direction with their vault and we look forward to seeing continued improvement from the three of them.
