Multiple Teams · MS Track – Whitmore Lake vs. Britton-Deefield

Last night Whitmore Lake traveled to Britton to take on the Patriots of the combined districts of Britton and Deerfield.  The girls were overwhelmed by the tough B-D team, with Lily Wilson picking up the only Trojans wins laying claim to both the 55 and 200 meter hurdles.  The boys made sure Whitmore Lake came home with at least one team win, solidly defeating the Patriots and getting first in 10 events including wins in all four relays.  Cole Rinna was a double winner taking the two longest events, and grabbed a relay win with Aiden Smith, Garrett Halle and Logan Kurth in the 3200 meter relay. Rinna’s time in the 1600 meter placed him third in the all-time 7th grade list, and the 3200 meter relay time was fifth all-time.  Nick Turner placed first in the 55 meter hurdles and teamed with Jack Kadoguchi, Nathan Francis and Thomas Riel to win the 400 meter relay.  Kadoguchi was also on the winning 800 meter relay team with Nelson Bartram, Marlo Biles and Daniel Reynolds.  Aiden Smith took the top spot in the 800 meter run and teamed with Bartram, Michael Corrie and Kurth for a victory in the 1600 meter relay.  Corrie took a first place in the 200 meter hurdles too, in his best time.  Due to the incompetent operation at Britton-Deerfield, final results were not given, so exact final scores are unknown and some places may have been missed.  The girls record drops to an even .500 at 3 – 3 (1 – 3 TCC) and the boys improve to 4 – 2 (2 – 2 TCC).  The 3 star athletes were:  Darla Hand – big PR in 55H and good 800; Lauren Pricey – PR in 1600 and two good relays; Annika Taylor – 3 PR’s; Peter Kandikov – big PR in 1600 and PR in SP; Jack Kadoguchi – great 800R leg and PR in 70; Marlo Biles – nice 70.
