Lady Eagles keep improving at Clare Invitational

  On Friday, April 29, the Frankenmuth Lady Eagles traveled to Clare to run in a 14 team invitational. Clare has a beautiful facility with a turf field surrounded by the track. This year’s MITCA Team State Championships will be held here. Ithaca looks like one of the top contenders for the top spots at the state level this season as they have a very deep and competitive team. The lady Eagles finished a very respectable 6th overall just four points out of 5th:

  1. Ithaca                                 122.5
  2. Clare                                       92
  3. Freeland                                  85
  4. Fowler                                  83.5
  5. Mt. Pleasant Sacred ...            66
  6. Frankenmuth                           62
  7. Midland Bullock Creek           53.5
  8. Beal City                                 51
  9. Harrison                               50.5
10. Hillsdale                                  41
11. Breckenridge                           25
12. Hemlock                                 15
13. Carson City-Crystal                   7
14. St. Louis                                  2

  The team set 13 personal records and nine season best marks as they competed today. We really like going to Clare even though it is over one hour away, as it is a very well run meet, great facility, and very good competition. Leading the way for the Lady Eagles were our throwers tonight with senior Keri Frahm winning the shot put setting a personal record with a toss of 38�”. This was followed by an 8th place personal record toss of 30’ 5.5” by senior Megan Reinbold. It was great to see Megan break the 30’ barrier tonight. Also setting a personal record in the shot put was sophomore Kenzie Harmon with a toss of 27’ 9.75”. In the discus, Keri also won as she set a season best distance of 122’ 5”. Kenzie also had a good throw as she set a personal record with a toss of 78’ 7”. In the pole vault, senior Kelsie Kujat continues to be consistent over 8’ 6” tying her season best and capturing 2nd place overall. Junior Megan Ihrig captured 5th place overall with a jump of 8’ 0”. In the long jump, junior Sara Aldrich leaped 14’ 0” setting a season best and just missing her personal record by 2”. Sara took 6th overall in the long jump.
  In the 100m dash, Faythe Bergman set a season best time of 14.2. Freshman Natalie Clark set a personal record in the 200m with a time of 31.53. Megan Ihrig set a season best time in the 100m hurdles clocking an 18.70 as well as setting a season best mark of 56.58 in the 300m hurdles. Faythe Bergman also set a season best time of 56.82 in the 300m hurdles. 
  Moving to the 800m run, junior Carissa Schurr and sophomore Sarah Richmond set season best marks as Carissa finished with a 4th place time of 2:29.69 and Sarah finished with a time of 2:39.66. In the 1600m run, LuLu Karney set another personal record with a time of 6:39.59. LuLu is really working hard to make these marks and it is great to see her making them. The 3200m trio of Hannah Loucks, Gabby Harris, and Lulu Karney had a good night as all three set personal records. Hannah finished 6th overall with a time of 12:37.80 followed by freshman Gabby Harris with a time of 13:31.00 and freshman Lulu with a time of 15:23.00. 
  The 4x100m Relay team of Adalee Beller, Kelsie Kujat, Abi Samson, and Alexa Cross captured 6th with a season best time of 54.94. In the 4x200m Relay, the team of Faythe Bergman, Alexa Cross, Felicia Whitley, and Adalee Beller set a season best time of 1:58.00. The 4x400m relay team of Adalee Beller, Grace Kaiser, Felicia Whitley, and Carissa Schurr also set a season best time of 4:29.45. Finally, the 4x800m relay team of Halia Andrews, Sarah Richmond, Hannah Loucks, and Carissa Schurr set a season best time of 10:37.60. This was the first time Halia has run an 800m as we asked her to step out of her normal sprinting role to help the 4x800m team. Halia did this without flinching and ran a very nice split. All of the relay teams are making improvements most every meet. We still have sprinters Alaina Elnick and Sarah Pasco coming back from injuries and this could strengthen the teams even more. We need to see how Alaina and Sarah’s legs hold out.
