Plymouth ends NLC drought
Plymouth’s boys track team earned a split in a three-way Northern Lakes Conference meet on the Pilgrims’ home track Monday.
The Pilgrims may have fallen to Elkhart Memorial, 86-46, but they beat out NorthWood 71-61 to end a two-year drought in NLC dual meet wins.
Adam Lacefield and Dan Samuelson finished one-two in the shot put, and they switched places in another one-two showing in the discus. Michael Hartman had an outstanding night with second-place finishes in the 100, 200 — where he and teammate Sam Stevens finished in order in second and third — and 400 and in the 4x400 relay with Mason Reed, Jack Barron and Taylor Fulton.
Austin Rose placed second in the mile and third in the two-mile for Plymouth, while freshman A.J. Styers placed third in the 300-meter hurdles.
Freshman Terrance Hooten placed second in the pole vault followed by teammate Clay Corsbie in third. Corsbie also finished fourth in the 110-meter hurdles, while Reed placed fourth in the 800, and freshman Kameron Ray was fourth in the 1600.
NorthWood’s Will Stueve, Devon Hunsberger and Bennett Parker swept the top three spots in order in the high jump, while Zach Telschow won both hurdles races, Mason Pippenger won the 3200, and Albert Gongwer won the vault.
Pippenger was third in the 1600, Nick Swarcan was second in the 800, Ke’Juan Leek placed second in the long jump, and the Panthers placed second in both the 3200 relay and the 400 relay.
