Hatchets love some home cooking

The Hatchet girls stayed in character by running away with last Tuesday’s Hatchet Invite, their 10th consecutive title, while the boys ranked a solid third.
The girls captured nine wins in 18 events, two with new meet records. Kellan Flynn cleared 5′ 4″ and Rachel Sudbury dashed the 400 in 1:01.13 for new marks.
Other titles came from Sudbury in the 3200 (11:31.40), Grace Mickelson in the pole vault (9′ 0″), Emmy Larson in the triple jump (30′ 3.5″), Emily Miller in the 800 (2:34.84), the 400 team (Flynn, Katie Koth, Breanna Renn, Kayli Ogstad, :54.85), the 800 squad (Flynn, Koth, Renn, Miller, 1:52.61) and the 3200 group (Kelsey Renn, Rebecca Barkholz, Alex Zedler, Regan Swan, 11:30.41).
The boys took four titles with Bryan Tomek in the 800 (2:02.73), Tyler Saindon in the long jump (19′ 7.25″), the 400 team (Saindon, Austin Bellile, Eddie Yirsa, Dan Galloy, :45.56) and the 1600 foursome (Yirsa, Bellile, Saindon, Tomek, 3:34.49).
“It was a busy week and our athletes really rose to the occasion as they competed on their home venue in front of their parents, classmates, and friends,” THS coach John Zuelsdorf said. “We had several seasonal best performances and PR’s and we were able to get enough times and distances to get a clearer picture of our best tournament entries going into the upcoming conference meet and regional.
“The girls were dominant in their Hatchet Invitational victory and more importantly came through the week relatively healthy.”
The girls went 2-3 in the 100 HH with Marlee Kiander (:16.52) and Ogstad (:16.73), and the shot put with Flynn (31′ 4″) and Sam Schade (29′ 7″). Also placing third were: Larson (LJ, 14′ 4″/200, :29.68); and Kiander (300 LH, :51.05).
Other runner-up finishes for the boys came from: Yirsa (TJ, 36′ 11″); Peter Pintens (PV, 11′ 0″); Connor Ahrens (1600, 4:59.57): and the 3200 team (Dakota Tomek, B. Tomek, Jacob McGuire, Dylan Dahl, 9:20.20). Rating third were: Zack Bruesewitz (Discus, 121′ 2″/ 300 IH, :45.37); Galloy (100, :11.60); Yirsa (200, :23.49); and Austin Kaiser (3200, 11:45.25).
