CSMS boys track team finishes undefeated season

The 7th and 8th grade boys track team finished with an undefeated record for the third year in a row.

Sixteen 7th and 8th grade track athletes from Cedar Springs competed at the Mega Star meet and won the team championship.

The CSMS boys track team finished its dual meet season with a third consecutive undefeated record.  The team completed their season by splitting into separate 7th and 8th grade teams to compete in separate conference championship invitationals. The 8th grade team placed first with 157 points, which was followed by Greenville, with 102 points. The 7th graders finished in first place with a total of 134 points, outdistancing second place Lowell, with 108.

In addition to their outstanding performances at their conference championships, the 7th and 8th grade team combined to send 16 athletes to compete at the Mega Star meet in Shepherd, Mich. There were 80 teams around the state represented at this meet. In order for an athlete to compete, they must have one of the 16 best times in an individual event, or in the top 8 for a relay team. The team fought hard and won the team championship with 83 points, over second place Traverse City West, with 70 points. Individuals who earned first place medals include Alex Nylaan, Spencer Bray, Caleb Peacock, Corey Bowers, Nathan Elliston, Carter Bayink and Aiden Brunin.

Seven school records were broken this year, which is the most by one team in the history of the middle school program. Corey Bowers set three school records in the 3200m, 1600m and 800m runs. Jeremy Campione broke the school record in pole vault by going 11’0. The 1600 meter relay team of  Spencer Bray, Caleb Peacock, Aiden Brunin and Corey Bowers broke the record that was established just last year and set the Mega Star meet record by running a time of 3:48. Tucker Cooke, Daniel Vaughn, Christian Moleski and Jeremy Campione broke the 400m relay record by sprinting to a 49.16 time. Finally, the 800m relay team of Daniel Vaughn, Christian Moleski, Aiden Brunin and Landon Totten set the school record with a time of 1:41.56.

The track team enjoyed an unbelievable and historic season this year due to their hard work, dedication and commitment to individually do what was necessary to make the team a success.

Congratulations to all team members on a fantastic season. A special thank you to all parents, staff members, high school coaches and athletes who are always on hand to cheer our team on and for running great home meets.
