The boys track and field team participated in the Bulldog Relays at Batavia High School on Thursday night. This meet featured an Opening Ceremony similar to the Olympics where the athletes are introduced as a team and walked out as a group.
The best finish for the Scouts was 2nd in the Distance Medley Relay (1200-400-800-1600m) which featured Ben Rosa, Jonathan Phalen, Eric Krieg, and Nathan Schmitt. The Scouts also finished 5th in the Sprint Medley Relay, led by senior Landon Edwards with a split of 23.2. The other members of that race were Jonathan Phalen (24.0), Kean O’Connor (55.4), and Eli Fietsam (2:06.4). All four runners earned their personal bests in that race, as the final time for the group was 3:49.50.
Also finishing in the top seven was the 4x400m Relay of Kean O’Connor (55.2), Daniel Flusser (58.2), Eric Krieg (55.2) and Eli Fietsam (55.7). Fietsam and O’Connor achieved their personal bests in that race. Their total time was 3:44.78.
The Scouts are back in action Tuesday, April 3, at Stevenson.
