BTC 2018 Indoor Season Off to a Great Start!

Results from GVSU

A group of about 15 Breen athletes made the trek to GVSU Saturday. 5 athletes represented the club in the Gazelle Sports Elite Mile to start off a great day. Austin Remick (Rochester) started out the day with an outstanding 4:26.00 finishing in 12th in the elite mile field. Megan Worrel (Troy) led the girls in the elite mile with a 6th place finish in 5:00.30. She was followed by Hannah Palomino (Troy) finishing 8th in 5:06.90 and Elizabeth Dalrymple (Clarkston) finishing 12th in 5:12.80. Mallory Ferguson (Clarkston) ran 5:14.70 in the 1600 to punch her ticket to the state finals. Joining her in qualifying to the state finals was a pair of first time qualifiers in Meghan Monaghan (Troy) in 5:18.50 and Donald O’Keefe (Troy) in 4:34.00.

 

Austin(Rochester) would come back in the 800 meters and run a state qualifying 2:02.40 to finish a very nice day. In the girls 800 the Breen girls showed their talent and depth and had 4 girls under that state qualifying time including a state leading time. Megan Worrel (Troy) improved her state leading 800 time to 2:16.90 for the win. She was followed by Lauren Fulcher (Troy) joining the sub 2:20 club in only her second 800 ever and running 2:19.50.   2:22.70, and Mallory Furguson (Clarkston) 2:25.60 capped off an outstanding day for the distance races. The day wasn’t quite finished though as Lauren Fulcher (Troy) came back in the 60 hurdles right after the 800 and just missed her pr by .03 while running 9.48 and finishing 3rd.

Results from SVSU

A much larger field of about 70 athletes of Breen Track Club went to SVSU and got off to a great start with numerous first time participants, some early PR’s, and several state meet qualifying marks. The girls sprint medley relay of Callie Dickens (Clarkston), Javionna Davis (Rochester), Haley Puskar (Clarkston), Mia Patria (Clarkston) ran 4:41.25 to beat the qualifying time of 4:46. Also, the girls 4×400 relay of Bridget Cusick (Oxford), Karenna Duffey (L’Ance Creuse North), Antonia Vackaro (Oxford), Callie Dickens ran 4:26.91 to get under the 4:32 qualifying mark.

Individually, Dominic Bruce (Oxford) qualified for his first indoor state meet in style doing it in two events in one day, by running a 4:32.50 1600m and a 2:04.11 800m. Last years indoor state champion in the 1600m Karenna Duffey ran a season best of 5:07.99 to win the event.

Another first time qualifier was Sky Fugmann (Troy) with a huge foot plus personal best of 16-02.5 in the long jump, well over the 15-03 qualifying standard. A special mention for Hunter Green (Oxford) that ran two personal bests in the 1600m and 800m on his birthday, running 4:45 and 2:12! In the Girls 60 M high hurdles, two Breen runners qualified for the state championship with times that met the qualifying standard of 11.0 seconds. Erinn Costello (Groves), clocked a time of 10.47 in the final round. Haley Puskar ran an 11.0 in the preliminary round.

Several middle school athletes walked onto the indoor track stage for the first time, toeing up with high school runners. This can certainly be an intimidating environment, but the kids showed great confidence in their efforts. In the 1600m, Amanda Solden (Van Hoosen) and Kate Meinecke (Guardian Angels) lead the girls with a 5:45.45 and 5:45.56 effort. They were followed closely by Alaine Cusick (Oxford) and Jessica Jarski (Holy Family). Nathaniel Smith (Clarkston) had an outstanding effort as well, clocking a 5:17.24. He was followed by teammates Brendan Washburn (Hart) and Drew Kovacs (Smith). Erika Mann (Avondale) had a near personal record performance in the long jump, and came back with Javonaye Davis (Ruther) in the 60m dash to start their indoor track careers.

Breen Track Club will take a break this weekend, but be be back at it on January 19 at SVSU!
