Records Continue to Fall @ Belleville Invitational
On a beautiful night, last Friday, both BSMS track and field squads continued their quest to become the most decorated track and field squad (combined) in the program's history. Last year's meet in Belleville was rained out midway through the trials., so having nice weather and good competition set the scene for great performances.
The boys opened up the run on Tri-Op records as the 4x800 relay (Redfearn, Turpin, Germaine, Pulvermacher) ran a season's best (8:32.87) to capture first place. Not to be outdone, the boy's 4x200 relay (Bailey, Germaine, Sigwarth, Pulvermacher) also set a new mark with the time of 1:34.58 to take 2nd place behind Columbus' 1:34.40. On the girl's side, Junior Emma Lawrence lowered her Tri-Op record in the 100H with a 3rd place finish (16.10).
Having great efforts on the night for the boys were; Freshman Caleb O'Neill (4th 400m, 3rd TJ 38' 7"), Senior Lance Lierman (3rd LJ, 18' 11"), Jeremiah Bailey (1st HJ, 6'2", 4th 110H 16.6), Freshman Matt Davis (5th 300IH, 46.6), Junior Ben Davis (3rd HJ, 5'8", 4th PV, 10'),and the 4x100 relay (Sigwarth, Shetler, Lierman, Bailey) 3rd, with a season's best 46.1.
For the girls; Freshman Chloe Matthews (4th 100m 13.83), Senior Katie Pingel (4th 100HH, 17.64, 3rd 300LH, 51.94, 3rd TJ, 32' 10"), Junior Emma Lawrence (1st 300LH, 46.06, 1st TJ, 33' 4.5"), Junior Brianna Leahy (1st Shot, 39' 9.5", 1st Discus, 114' 10"), Sophomore Trinity Law (2nd HJ, 4' 10"), and the 4x100 relay which ran a season's best 51.81 (Lawrence, Murphy, Jerry, Matthews).
