Fernwood Track

Monday Meet Recap- Excellent performance by the Boys track team Monday as they battled the wind at the high school track to defeat both competitors in our Tri-meet. Against Galloway the boys won 58 to 24 and against Northfield they won 51 to 3.

Top Scoring Performances by Jalen Green, Billy Christopher, Xavier Aucule, William Seaman, Matthew Reed, and Jack Carroll. Our boys swept both the 400 meters- Xavier Acule 1st, Caleb Ziegler 2nd, and Matthew Reed 3rd and the 800 meters- Billy Christopher 1st, William Seaman 2nd, and Matthew McDevitt 3rd. Shoutout to Easton Dilks who has been leading our sprint group all season and has the fastest 100m time on the team 12.3 seconds. Another shoutout to our throws team which continues to improve and Shawn Cobrand who has been a consistent scorer for the team in both the Shotput and the discus all season. It was a great team effort all around!

Big thank you to our managers Aleah Hamid, Jaliyah Prevard, and Allison Maurer for keeping us organized!
