After Newaygo canceled their invitational due to weather, the Eagles secured an opportunity last minute to compete in a large school invite in Battle Creek. We left the sleet and snow in Kent City and traveled to surprisingly pleasant weather 1 ½ hours south. The gamble paid off as the Eagles brought home 4 1st place finishes in the 10 team invite. The top six scored for the Eagles and the top three medaled. Gio Weeks (LJ & 200m) and Fraser Wilson (1600m & 3200m) brought home two first place finishes each. Gio broke his school record twice in the meet, setting our new 200m record at an impressive 22.63. He also broke the record in the prelims (22.82). These are impressive times considering how cold and windy it was! Hunter Nelson ran well taking 3rd in the 1600m, and our 3200m relay team of Flegel, Nelson, Russo, Wilson also medaled with their 3rd place finish. We compete again on Tuesday at Kent City versus White Cloud.
