6 Career PR’s sets the tone for the Mustangs on a Beautiful night in Ellettsville!
With rain in the forecast, the goal was to get out to a quick start and push all the pedal all evening! That is exactly what the Stangs did!
Starting with the 4×8 team of Siek, Doering, Roland, Gill), the Stangs started the first race of the evening with a season PR and a 2nd place finish in a time of 9:23.11. Improvement for sure and we still have progress to make!
The 110 hurdles saw senior Nathan Bolin set a Career PR with a time of 16.53! This was also strong enough for a 2nd place finish
The 100 meter dash happened and saw the Mustangs get swept out of the top 4 places! However, 4 athletes set PR’s (Repass, Bland, Hiatt, Wickens) and we also witnessed senior Grant Raake set a career PR with a time of 12.11!
In the boys 1600, Junior Liam Nelson and freshman Anthony Richardson both ran strong races and set PR on the season. AR ran a 5:30.87 and Liam set a Career PR with a time of 5:02.71!
The team of Love, Bland, McGlothlin, G Raake improved upon the previous 4×1 teams time and ran a 46.01, which was 1 second faster than the 2nd place team from Brown County!
The 400 meter dash saw the boys from the The Wood go 1-2 as the McGlothlin-Z Rakke combo KO’ed the competition. Both ran smooth races and looked strong. McGlothlin won with a time of 50.38 and freshman Z Raake placed 2nd with a time of 53.31, setting his season PR also! As a point of reference to Johns work, this same meet last year, John ran a 53.43. WOW!
The 300 Hurdles proved again to be point of emphasis for senior Nate Bolin. Bolin, a 4 year track athlete, ran a season PR with a time of 43.92 and also hammered it home the last 60 meters and gained a spot to claim 1st place! It was a very impressive finish!
A slew of Stangs set PR’s in the open 800. Aden Siek, Luke Roland, Eddie Mendoza, Dylan Robertson, and Anthony Richardson all set season PR’s. Junior Izaiah Doering set a career PR with a time of 2:20.42.
In the 200 meter dash, again the KO combo of McGlothlin- Z Raake earned 1-2 finishes! Raake with a season PR. It also showcased junior Tristan Bland and sophomore-freshman duo of Wickens and Hiatt, as all 3 set season PR’s.
The 3200 meter run saw senior Austin Haskett run his first race of the season! He ran a very well paced 10:11.73 and got what he need to out of the run! Liam Nelson had a good race, especially after already PR’ing in the 1600 earlier. Sophomore Elliot Gough ran a seaon PR of 11:45.55.
The 4×4 team of Bolin, Doering, Z Raake and McGlothlin, ran a speedy 3.36.16 to claim first place in that race. That race also shocased the toughness of several of the athletes as Nate Bol ran an incredibly tough and smart last 200 meters of his race. We also watched as Zay Doering went 55 seconds in a split for the first time in his track career.
HJ witnessed senior David Brown clear 6’3 and junior Kolin Repass clear his first ever height of 5’0.
LJ watched David Brown complete the “jumps sweep” as he cleared a distance of 20’8.75 inches for first place. Sophomore Blake Love also finished in 2nd with a jump of 18’7.50.
The team of Throwers had a wonderful evening! The following athletes had season PR’s on the night!
In disc: O’Connor, B Smith, Hahn, Buehl, Ludlow, White, Davis, Bitner, Webb and Hart all improved on their previous season best! Some of them by as much as 20 feet! Very Cool!
In Shot: Senior Tyler Welty set a career PR with a put of 44’11.50!!!!! Yes sir! That is exactly what we needed from him! Also, Junior Evan O’Connor tossed his shot 37’11 for a Career best and season PR. Davis, Ludlow, Bitner, Buehl Webb and Hart, again, all set new season PR’s.
In the Pole Vault, second year track athlete, Junior Jarrod Robbins, with his first year of PV’ing just starting and in his first meet, cleared 7’6!! I was lucky enough to watch it as it happened and it was GLORIOUS!! To see an athlete compete and achieve is what makes all the time, energy and effort worth it to this ole coach!
I could not have been more proud of my kids for how they went and competed on the evening!
I believe we saw 38 season PR’s and 6 career PR’s.
With them working like this now, it could mean great dividends come conference and state series time!
Old kids, New kids, new season, same goals!!!
