Schafer leads area athletes at Bremen

BREMEN — Jasmine Schafer understands. Winning a sectional track title is nice, but survival is the name of the game.
It was less important to win a blue ribbon at the Bremen Girls Track Sectional than it was to earn a trip to next week’s Warsaw regional.
So, when Schafer finished second in the 100-meter dash Tuesday night, well, that was OK.
Same thing with her fourth place finish in the 200.
The top four finishers in each event at a sectional advance to regional meets. So Schafer lives to race another day.
And in this meet, that was a tall order.
With Penn and Mishawaka pretty much dominating the proceedings, only three local athletes finished high enough to qualify for next week’s affair at Warsaw.
Penn came from behind in the final event of the evening — the shot put — to edge defending champion Mishawaka for the team title, 129 1/2 to 123.
South Bend Adams finished third, South Bend Clay was fourth, and Bremen took sixth with 51 1/2 points.
Glenn was ninth and LaVille 10th.
LaVille junior Katie Minarik finished second in the high jump, clearing 5-1. Only four girls in the field managed to negotiate the 5-foot mark.
Bremen junior Sara Slabaugh, meanwhile, had one of the best efforts of the evening. She out-kicked Penn’s Maddie Woods to finish third in the 1600-meter run.
Woods was an All-State cross country runner. Slabaugh clocked 5:29.29, while Woods ran 5:32.96.
Clay’s Amanda Farrough won the 1600-meter race, edging national cross country champion Anna Rohrer of Mishawaka in 5:02.60.
While Bremen scored well, a lot of Lion points came from fifth and sixth-place awards that don’t carry regional qualification.
The Lion 4 x 100, 4 x 400 and 4 x 800 relay teams each finished fifth by narrow margins. Vianca Montes de Oca, Marisa Browning, Katelyn Aguayo and Schafer clocked 51.21 in the 4 x 1, missing a regional berth by three-tenths of a second.
Nicole Hueni, Browning, Jorgi Klockow and Schafer were equally close in the 4 x 4, trailing Penn by a half-second (4:16.91).
Aguayo was fifth in the 200-meter dash. Kaley Gann was fifth in the long jump.
Glenn was equally unfortunate. In the shot put, sophomore Morgan Eggleston ended up fifth with a best effort of 33 feet, 6 inches. She was also fifth in the discus (95-2).
Emily Schmalzried clocked 16.82 but finished fifth in the 100 hurdles by a tenth of a second.
