Our track team competed in the Eastern Michigan University Huron Relays this past Saturday. Everyone competed hard and showed where we are early in the season. 

Highlights on the women’s side were the 4×800 relay team placing 8 spots better than last year, both Emily Holtz and Breonia Robinson finishing better than our best hurdler last year in the 60 meter hurdles, and Ebony Battle finishing better than our best sprinter last year in the 60 meter dash in spite of just missing the finals by one place.

With the men, our distance medley relay team placed 8th and our 4×200 meter relay team finished in 5th. Nathaniel White ran well enough in the 60 meter dash to make finals and ultimately earned the 11th spot. The top finisher was Joe Meyers in the 1600 meter run who led the middle part of the race but finished 2nd to a runner from Ohio. As a team they finished 14th out of 30 teams.

Both teams compete again the Tuesday after spring break at the new facility at Portage Northern High School.

There will be a green school meeting on Wednesday at 2:30 in room B-14. Please attend, there is important information to discuss. See you there!
