Fremont-Mills, East Mills have strong showings at Stanton Co-ed

The Fremont-Mill girls were second and the boys fourth at the Stanton Co-ed Track Meet at Griswold on Thursday.

The F-M girls tallied 122 points for its runner up finish behind team champion Riverside’s 197 points. The East Mills girls were sixth with 51 points. On the boys’ side, Riverside edged ACGC 120 to 119 to win the team titles. Fremont-Mills finished with fourth with 67 points, 1.5 points ahead of the East Mills boys in fifth place.

The Knights girls notched seven gold medals at the meet.

Fremont-Mills coach Kyle Fichter said the wind didn’t make it easy on event at Griswold, but he still felt his team performed really well. Some times, he said, showed no effect by the wind like he expected.

The Knights’ 4x8-meter relay of Wilson, Ellie Switzer, Ella Thornton, Tegan Ewalt broke the school record. Hannah Wilson continued her strong start. So far this season she had competed in eight events and placed first in all eight.

“The whole team is performing ahead of where we thought they might be this early,” he said.

Wilson (400-meter hurdles), Emily Madison (high jump) and Lana Alley (long jump) all won individual golds. The Knights added golds in the shuttle hurdle (1:10.46), sprint medley (2:00.44) and distance medley (2:00.44).

Wilson also ran on shuttle hurdle and distance medley relays.

Cooper Marvel led Fremont-Mills with a top finish in the shot put. He also added a second place showing in the discus.

The Knights’ distance medley relay team of Paxten VanHouten, Payten VanHouten, J.W. Linkenhoker and Dylan Linkenhoker finished second.

East Mills coach Claude Lang agreed the wind was a factor but a factor his team dealt with well.

“We had a lot of hard working, determined athletes push through it to make themselves better,” he said. “I am impressed with all of the East Mills track athletes for the amount of support they give each other throughout the meet.  It was fun to watch, and I hope it continues all season.  

The East Mills girls were led by Emily Williams gold in the 100-meter hurdles. Jenna Thornburg added a second-place finish in the 200-meters.

“It is great to have this many girls out for track, competing and supporting each other,” Lang said. I am able to mix up a few things to see what everyone is good at.”

East Mills’ 4x100-meter relay team of Zach Thornburg, Mason Crouse, Caleb Urban and Davis McGrew ran a 46.53 for first place. The Wolverines’ added second place showings in the 4x200-meter and shuttle hurdle relays.

“Our seniors did a great job of setting the tone for us in the second meet of the week,” Lang said of his boys squad.
