It was nice to get off to a great start in the me winning the 4 by 800 meter relay with Jared Smith, Drew Monize, Gavin Vandeventer, and Jack Johnson. The team extended the hot start by taking first and second in the disc. Seeing A.J. Wiles win the disc followed by Asher Walden 2nd was just nice to see.
What was really the story of the day we’re seeing guys team up in events replacing two at once.
Jack Johnson and Jared Smith teamed up in the 800 taking 3rd and 4th. Evan Monize and Greg Black teamed up in the 400m taking 4th and 5th and Dakota Spencer and Dontae Nolder took 2nd and 3rd
TO win the BIG ORANGE is huge for us. Two years ago we were dead last and to win this meet is a great momentum change for us.
This meet has many competitive teams and it was nice to see our guys compete. The boys team will run against Tri-Cental/Delphi @home on Monday April 15th. GREAT JOB!
