A wet win for Indians


Camanche recorded a big win early, taking first in the shuttle hurdle relay. A strong second leg by Zach Feller put the Indians in the lead, and Beal and Brantley made sure they held on. Blake Bialas ran the opening leg.

“I’ve been hurt all year, and this is the best I’ve felt,” Feller said. “I just wanted to catch him and pass him.”

The Indians placed second at state in the event last year, but Brantley is the only member of that unit who is back.

“We’ve had to work hard to get there, but hard work pays off,” Feller said. “Blake has come on strong, Brady is running well and Tom, obviously, is good.”

The Indians also advanced with a second-place finish from McDaniel, Brantley, Beal and Will Seeser in the 800 relay (1:35.14).

Drake Sachsenmier also is returning to state in all four wheelchair events: the 100, 200 and 400 races, and the shot put.

Camanche had all but clinched the team title after it won the 400 relay, but Bellevue cut the gap by four when Jace Michels, Jake Schroeder, Aaron Beckley and Noah Reed won the 1,600 relay in 3:34.78, while Camanche came in third.

Michels also won the 400 hurdles race in 57.03 for the Comets, while Andrew Meyer took second in the 3,200 (9:51.22), Reed was second in the 200 (23.54) and Robert Schroeder was the runner-up in the 110 hurdles (15.51), Evan Dalldorf placed second in the long jump (20 feet, 3.25 inches). The Comets qualified for state in the shuttle hurdle relay (second in 1:01.86).

Northeast placed fourth in team race with 79 points. Eli Kaczinski was a double winner in the 3,200 (9:48.75) and 1,600 (4:35.87), Axel Dondiego won the high jump (5 feet, 10 inches) and Nick Anderson made a strategic run to the title in the 800 (2:02.60).

“I knew he (Mount Vernon’s Nolan Teubel) was a strong racer and had a lot of endurance, so I just tried to stick with him as long as I could and then kick it in as fast as I possibly could to get the win,” Anderson said.
