Broncos Girls Shine at Munising Invitational | News, Sports, Jobs

MUNISING — The Bark River-Harris girls shone almost as bright as the lights of Mustang Stadium here Friday night, taking care of business while winning the Munising Lions Invitational track meet.

BR-H scored 88 1/2 points, followed by Munising 43 1/2 and Pickford 30.

The Broncos captured the 400-meter relay at a school and clocked a record 53.21 seconds and set a meet record in the 800 relay (1:54.73).

“With the cancellation of our meeting (Stephenson Invitational) on Tuesday, we have worked a lot on transfers”, said BR-H assistant coach Travis Depuydt. “The girls performed very well. Our sprinters are very strong and Hazel (Conklin) is doing well in the hurdles. I think we are peaking at the right time. The children have worked hard and we are very proud of them.

The Pickford boys retained their title with 77 points, followed by Munising 54 and Manistique 28.

BR-H sophomore Julia Olson, who set a school record in the 400 (1:03.2) at North Dickinson on May 3, won again Friday in 1:03.91, clocked the 200 (28 .33) and helped winning sprint relays.

“My beginnings were good” she says. “The coaches helped me prepare. I still have a lot left. »

The Broncos, led by sophomore Mckenzie Hoffmeyer, grabbed the top three spots in the 100.

She was clocked at 13.51, followed by rookie Marissa Ives (13.54) and senior Aspen Fredrick (13.88).

“We wanted to get at least one of the records in the sprint relays,” said Hoffmeyer, who also did the long jump (15-8). “It’s getting closer to the regional (Division 2). It helps us prepare for it. It’s great fun to break records. It’s such a feeling of accomplishment.

Senior Alaska Peterson, second Lauren Zawada (800) and Fredrick also played major roles in the sprint relays.

“Our transfers went very well in the 400 relay,” said Peterson, who led that relay. “I started really well, which I think really helps. The other girls are also doing really well, which helps prepare us for a tough region.

Fredrick, who anchored both sprint stints, had similar thoughts.

“The relays went well” Frederique said. “Even though we had a big lead in the 800m relay, I knew I had to give it my all. Regionals are only a week away.

The Broncos also won the 1600 (4:32.38) and 3200 (11:17.25) relays.

“Our transfers need a bit of work, although they went well overall,” said Zawada, who also helped the longest stint. “We put a lot of work into it, and the effort really showed tonight.”

Along with assisting the sprint relays and taking second place in the 100m, Ives added a second in the 400m (1:05.63).

“Taking the top three places in the 100 gave us a lot of points,” she says. “We know how to push each other and we trust each other. I don’t usually do the 400. I led for most of the race, but in the last 100 my legs couldn’t take it anymore. Julia is a very strong runner.

Conklin won the 100 hurdles (19.08), placed second in the 300 (53.78) and third in the shot put with a personal best of 28-3 1/2.

“Everything went pretty well overall” she says. “There was really good competition here tonight and I just pushed it. My departures went well. It’s the first time I’ve put myself in the firing line. I’m pretty happy with it.

Mid Peninsula senior Landry Koski stormed from 25 yards to win the 800m in a personal best 2:30.29, thrashing Manistique rookie Leah Goudreau (2:30.51) on the wire. BR-H freshman Hope Varoni placed third (2:43.21).

Koski also won the 1600 (5:45.28) and 3200 (12:47.56), the two bests of the season.

“I was really surprised” she says. “It was very hot at the start. We are lucky that this is a meeting in the spotlight. Once it got dark it cooled down really well and I felt really good. In the early 1600s, it was really nice. She (Goudreau) was in front of me all along (in the 800). I didn’t expect to catch up with her. Although I could tell she was getting tired by the end.

Sophomore Danielle Lund provided Manistique with a first shot (31-9 1/4) and ranked second in discus (93-10), and BR-H junior Carley Varoni and Pickford’s Lizzie Storey shared first place in the pole vault (7-0).

In the men’s pole vault, Munising junior Josiah Peramaki hit a meet record of 13-6, six inches off his school best in Rapid River on May 5, and won the long jump (19-4 3/4 ).

“I am not disappointed” he said. “I needed to extend my left arm, but today I couldn’t get it in. I’m trying to be consistent with a 14-foot distance.”

His twin brother Micaiah shot the 100 (11.6) and 200 (23.36) and the discus (120-10).

Superior Central’s Wyatt Kulik became the lone winner in the zone winning the 400 (54.52), just 0.17 seconds ahead of junior Manistique Grant Mason.

“It was very close” said Mason. “I got off to a good start and took the lead and then he caught me halfway through. I thought I had a good night anyway.
