The Eagles won all but one running event, one relay, and one field event. The distance trio of Freeland, Martini, and Ignasiak led the way by sweeping the mile and 800 runs. Kent City also took the top two spots in the 200 (Denhof & Weeks), the long jump (Freeland & Weber), the high jump (Weber & McCuaig), the 2 mile (Martini & Sizemore), and the discus (Rodenburg & Schneider-Thomas). Individual winners included Dombrowski (pole vault), Weber (100 hurdles), and Freeland (400).
The JV boys baseball team traveled to Morley last night and were up 12-2 after 3 innings before the game was called due to rain. The boys played great. Great team effort. Practice right after school today.
