Lewis continues to excel for Red Robin track men|
April 17, 2013
The official sports calendar had listed April 16 as the Red Robin track and field team’s outdoor opener — but Mother Nature has certainly had other ideas this season.
Although host Wausau West could boast of far better conditions than Antigo’s snow and water-covered facilities — a scenario which has forced the cancellation of Thursday’s Dale Peterson Inviational — the gloomy weather forced a majority of Tuesday’s events to remain indoors.
“It was an interesting meet,” co-head coach Jim Alfonso explained. “The field events, except for the discus, were inside. The discus and all races of 800 meter and up were held outside.”
One of four teams to compete, Antigo finished third overall with 50 points, beating out last place Wausau East with 10. Marshfield took the title with 111.5. Wausau West was second at 88.5.
“It was a decent start to what we hope will be a continuing outdoor season,” Alfonso said.
No matter the arena, Antigo’s Tyler Lewis continued to excel. Running three events, he won them all to take the title in the 55 meter dash (6.96); 200 meter (24.94); and 400 meter dash (56.74).
“He had an outstanding meet,” Alfonso said.
Collin Koss also scored victory, crossing the finish line first in the one mile at 4:49.17. In the lengthier two mile, he took second with a time of 10:32.11. Marshfield’s Nolan Redetzke won with a time of 10:28.58.
Aeric Berner continues to improve and impress. After barely missing scoring in two events (55 meter dash and long jump), he ran a very good 200 meter (26.27) to finish third overall.
Berner also earned a bronze in the in the 4x400 relay, joining Caleb Hohensee, Abe Shinners and David Ison in finishing third with a time of 3:59.96.
Hohensee took third on pole vault (12’ 6’’) to tie his personal best while teammate Kirk Prince was fourth with a 10 foot leap, a personal record. Noah Nicholson was seventh with a nine foot jump.
Jake Zabrowski was solid in shot put, finishing third with a 41’ 3 1/2’’ toss. Michael Bradley placed fourth with a 41’ throw. Josh Hale took sixth with a 37 4 1/2’’ toss.
The 4x800 relay team — Aaron Koss, Abe Shinners, Eli Wickersheim and Michael Purdun — placed third with a time of 9:19.06.
The four lap relay team — Dan Spaude, John Monk, Connor Adams and Jared Rolo — placed fourth with a time of 1:22.27.
Other top eight efforts were produced by Ison, fourth in 400 meter dash (59.29); Justin Hickman, fifth in 400 meter dash (59.31) and sixth in high jump (5’ 2’’); Jon Conklin, sixth in high jump (5’ 2’’); Wyatt Franzen, seventh in shot put (37’ 2 1/2’’); Purdun, seventh in two mile (1:30.37); Joe Wittmann, seventh in 200 meter hurdles (32.25); and Jesse Letendre, seventh in 800 meter (2:25.45).
