MS boys track team goes undefeated


S-Track-MS-boys

 

The Cedar Springs Middle School boys track team had an outstanding performance this spring. Coached by Kevin Martens and Steve Banagis, the boys finished their season undefeated. The season came to a close on June 1 at the Megastar meet in Shepherd. Athletes qualified for this meet by ranking in the top 16 for each individual event and in the top eight for relay teams. The coaches accompanied 10 young men to the meet, and they competed in the large school division. While there, the boys displayed just how much they had learned from their coaches through their amazing performances, including personal bests, medals, and even new school records.

Individual medal winners for the meet included Michael Pigorsh placing fourth in the 800 meter with a time of 2:13.67; Jaydon Moleski placing third in the 1600 meter with a time of 5:00.51; and Nate Perry placing fourth in the 400 meter with a time of 55.56. Corey Bowers and Landon Totten also represented the school in the 3200 meter and the shot put, respectively. The school also had three qualifying relay teams. Landon Totten, Da’Monte Barnett, Ben VanDusen, and Ben Shaw represented the Hawks in the 800 meter relay. A close race was had in the 1600 meter relay, where Jaydon Moleski, Zak Schmid, Michael Pigorsh, and Nate Perry received a third place medal for the event with a time of 3:51.74, finishing just 1.32 seconds behind the overall event winner. While not quite fast enough to win the event, the boys did leave their mark with a new school record.  The school record for the 3200 meter relay was also broken at the Megastar.  The team of Michael Pigorsh, Zak Schmid, Brendon Carlson, and Jaydon Moleski finished with a time of 9:12.65 seconds to become not only the division champion, but the overall event champion as well.

Congratulations to not only these athletes, but the entire Cedar Springs Middle School track team and coaches on a great season.
