Boys track runs well after spring break 


The Red Hawks began spring break where they left off, with a 91.5-45.5 victory over Wyoming. The Hawks came out of the field events scoring 42 of the possible 45 points. The distance, mid-distance and hurdling crew dominated the races while the Hawks were no match for Wyoming’s top sprinter. A rare disqualification by Cedar in the 4x200m relay allowed the Wolves to take 10 of the 40 points in the relays.

“Coming back from break, we did a great job of performing. So many guys set personal bests in the field events as well as our sprints, hurdles and distance guys,” stated Coach Myers.

On April 18, the Hawks went to the annual Bronco Classic in Coopersville. The three leveled division meet saw the middle school group finish second; the junior varsity group took home a first place trophy; and the varsity group finished third. Overall, the boys finished second in the 5-team invite.

Winning gold medals were senior Austin Sargent (1600m and 800m runs), MavRick Cotten (long jump and 110m hurdles), Jaron Spencer in the junior varsity division discus, Remington Sawade in the pole vault, Isaiah Schatz in the junior varsity pole vault, and Nikc Jackson in the junior varsity high jump.

“It was a great day to perform with temperatures near 70. Most of the athletes took advantage of the great weather and set personal bests again for the team,” said Coach Myers. “We just have to keep pushing ourselves to be better each day. We can never be satisfied about our performances for any longer than a day.”

The Hawks continue on the road as they are headed to rival Forest Hills Northern (conference meet), Chippewa Hills (April 25), and Greenville (April 27), before returning May 2 to host the annual Red Hawk Invitational.
