Fresh-Soph Comets Compete in I-8 Conference Track Meet


The Reed-Custer freshmen and sophomore track members traveled to Seneca last night to compete in the Frosh-Soph I-8 conference meet. The girls had a challenging night, finishing 11th, but only had 4 girls competing. But one of those four, Kelly Golaszewski, had a splendid night, setting personal records in both the shot (7th place) and discus. Mia Kuchar also scored, finishing 7th in the 3200 run. The boys team had a spectacular night, finishing in 3rd place. Vinnie Vercelote continued to excel, winning both the long jump and 300 hurdles in new conference-setting record style and finishing 2nd in the triple jump. Gabe Nagel placed in both the 800 and 1600 with his best times of the year. Shane Milburn placed 3rd and 4th the 800 and 200, respectively. Zach Weaver had a big night, too, placing 2nd in the long jump and 3rd in the 400. Dylan Hutchinson placed 8th in the 400 and helped the 4×4 relay of Vercelote, Milburn, and Weaver get 2nd place. Cody Kempf and Tyler Hood rounded out the Comet scoring by placing 5th in triple jump and 4th in the pole vault, respectively. Logan Zacharias, although not scoring, bettered his previous best shot put throw by 2.5 feet! The future looks bright for these young Comets. They will join their varsity teammates to compete in the Herscher Invitational Friday. Senior Night is Tuesday, May 5. Come out and celebrate with the seniors and the other track members on this special night!
