Meet Recap

Webb MoonThe Elkhart Central Boys Track team picked up wins over Mishawaka and New Prairie thanks to an impressive effort in the field events. Coming off a less-than-stellar showing at the Goshen Relays Saturday, the field events contributed 38 of the team’s 77.5 points.

The Blue Blazers had 1-2 finishes in the pole vault (Mikey Holtz and Noah Sears), discus (Drew Huxhold and Tyler Myers), long jump (JT Webb and Adam Moon), high jump (Seth Collings and Webb), and 800 meter run (Luis Perez and Elias Soto). Also picking up 1st place finishes were Devin Jones in the shot put, JT Webb in the 100, and the 4×800 meter relay team of Adam Delks, Elias Soto, Oliver Hasler, and Brayan Vega-Guzman.

“I challenged our field event athletes yesterday in practice and they responded well,” said head coach Jake Balch.  “I was also very impressed with a breakout performance by Elias Soto.”

The team is now 6-2 on the season (5-1 NIC) and has won 10 straight at home. Please come out next Tuesday as they host South Bend Adams and Clay on Senior Night. Seniors will be honored before the meet at 4:30.
