LAKE CITY – Both the Titans of Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire and the Wolverines of West Bend-Mallard/Gilmore City-Bradgate competed Monday night at the Ink Wunderlay Invitational Track Meet. GT/RA would finish ninth with 10 points and WBM/GCB finished 10th with eight points in the team race.

Leading the effort for GT/RA was Jake Conlon, as he finished fourth in the 800 meter run with a 2:08 clocking.

Also earning a fourth place finish was the Titans’ 4×800 meter relay. The foursome of Eric Sundall, Jared Sikora, Chris Conlon and Jake Conlon would finish with a 9:02.93 clocking.

Cole Hagedorn would come away with a throw of 40’8.5″ in the shot put to finish fifth in the competition. Additionally, Hagedorn set a new school record in the discus with a throw of 104 feet, but the throw did not end up placing in the competition.

“This meet is probably the deepest quality meet we will attend this year,” noted Titan Head Coach David Peterson. “I am very happy with our times and our field events as we continue to show improvement.”

For West Bend-Mallard/Gilmore City-Bradgate’s Wolverines, Nolan Dahlhauser would place fourth in the long jump, as he came away with a leap of 18’7″.

Also earning a fourth place finish was the Shuttle Hurdle Relay squad comprised of Nolan Dahlhauser, Hunter Jergens, Danie Riesenberg and Jack Banwart, as they finished with a 1:09 clocking.

“This was a very tough meet for us, as most of the teams in this meet were 2A and 3A size,”?noted Wolverine Head Coach Jerry Vanderhorst. “Nolan jumped well for the first time out and the Relay ran a nice race also. It was still good to get out and compete.”
