Both win Stingray Invitational

The MICMS Eagles boys and girls track teams last took to the track on March 16, but they showed no rust in dominating the Stingray Middle School Invitational at Seacrest Country Day School on Tuesday.

They came back with fire in their eyes and both came out victorious. It was a great way to begin the second half of the season.

The girls had a banner day with wins in all but three events.

Lauren Hanscom won the 200 meter sprint and long jump and was a member of the winning 4x400 meter relay team.

Rosie Poling continued her wining ways, racing to wins in the 800 and 1600 meter runs and also on the winning 4x400 meter relay.

Christy Thorstenson won the 400 meter sprint and was the anchor member of the 4x400 relay.

The 4x100 meter relay was won with Lexie Lundquist, Taylor Fetzer, Samantha Jennings and Ashley Schneller carrying the batons for the Eagles.

Madison Smith was first in the shot and Alyssa Stolinas won the discus.

The girls dominated because a number of runners and field competitors, registered points for coming in the top five.

The final score for the meet was: Charter School, 107.5, First Baptist 33.5, Community 18, Seacrest, 10.

The boys were led by Patrick Michel, winning the 100 and 200 meter runs and long jump and he anchored the winning 4x100 meter relay team.

Tanner Fulcher had another outstanding meet with first place finishes in the 800 and 1600 meter races.

Trevor Dye threw the discus 98’ 5” for a personal best and possible school record in his win. He also was a member of the winning 4x100 relay team. Dalton Herrity and Josh Wagner were also on this relay.

Tarken Peksen won the 100 meter hurdles.

The boys, too, dominated because our competitors scored top five points.

The final scores for the boys meet were: Charter School, 88, First Baptist 55, Community School 18 and Seacrest 10.

The Sunshine Athletic Conference Championship will be at First Baptist Academy at 4 p.m. on Tuesday.
