Last night, although cold in temperature was a hot night on the track for the Mustangs from the Wood.
In a 3 way meet with visiting Moorseville and Terre Haute, the Mustangs were able to edge the competition for the 2nd win of the Mustangs young season. By the time the meet was over, it was 35 degrees, slightly windy, but the rain and snow stayed away and we were able to get times and distances for many of our athletes. In the end, the Mustangs track and field team walked away with 37 personal records on the season, with many athletes being challenged to their max.
The 100 meter dash was led by sophomore John McGlothlin (11.42), followed closely by Senior Cole Hall (11.83) who finished 3rd, Ethan Hill (12.01) in 5th, first year runner and sophomore Cam Curtis (12.62), Cole Flora, Grant Raake, and first year runner Drew Fletcher. 5 of those runners Pr’ed.
The 200 meter dash finished with 3 Mustangs in the top 16. Cole Hall led the Mustangs with a 3rd place finish (24.460, followed in 7th by Cam Curtis (25.62), and Grant Raake (26.60)
3 Mustang athletes competed in the 400 meter dash. Sophomore sprinter John McGlothlin won the event in a slow time (his words) of (53.43), followed by Izaiah Doering (59.06) and first year runner Spencer Thompson (1.02.50).
For training purposes, the Stangs ran a stable of runners in the 800. Leading the herd was junior standout Austin Haskett with a time of 2.02.31. Freshman Aden Siek placed 3rd and ran another good race (2.09.82). The next 5 Stangs all ran season best times in the event…Liam Nelson (2.26.02), Madison Ingram (2.40.85), Jarrod Robbins (2.40.94), Eddie Mendoza (2.43.05), Dylan Robertson (2.59.43).
The 1600 meter run saw 2 freshman (Elliot Gough and Dylan Robertson) and 1 sophomore compete. Liam Nelson led the Mustangs with a 7th place finish as all 3 Stangs Pr’d.
2 freshman led the Mustangs in the 3200 meter run also. Andre Adkins ran a 12.58.42 and Elliot Gough ran a PR time of 13.00.12.
The hurdle races, 110 high hurdles and the 300 hurdles, saw the Mustangs compete very well. Tyler Strickland was a double winner in both events (16.10 & 40.93), followed by Nathan Bolin in the 300’s with a PR time of 44.19. Joel Strickler had a heck of a run in the 300 hurdles. He was very much on his way to a PR and top 3 finish, maybe even top 2, when he tripped over the 6the hurdle and crashed to the ground. He was able to get up and finish the race as the 1st place finisher in his heat! First year runner Tristan Bland also had a very solid meet, running both hurdle races for the first time and competing very well!!
Our relays also did well as they won the 4×1, 4×4 and placing 2nd in the 4×8.
Field events saw several Mustangs compete and finish in top spots. Noah Bise won the long jump with a jump of 21’3. He also placed 2nd in the high jump, going 5-10. Caleb Waugh was able to record his first ever varsity Blue ribbon as he PR’d by clearing 10-6 in the pole vault. Shot put saw no Mustang make it in the top 5 but there were still some good performances. Freshman Austin Hahn had a best throw of 32-8, while Jaydon Street, Jackson Ludlow, and Caleb Parks also PR’d for the Mustangs. In Disc, senior Colton Bowman placed 2nd with 115-8, sophomore Evan O’Connor PR’d for the 2nd meet in a row and threw a monster 108-3. Tyler Welty stayed over 100 feet for the 2nd meet in a row.
