PREP BOYS TRACK AND FIELD: A Raider career night

Northridge’s Bello has a hand in winning four events at meet

MIDDLEBURY — Miguel Bello had quite a night for the Northridge Raiders.

All he did was win three individual events and run on a winning relay as the Raiders defeated Concord 69-63 and NorthWood 89-43 in an NLC meet Thursday evening at Northridge. Concord was a 73-59 winner over NorthWood.

Bello finished first in long jump (20-10 1/2), the 100-  (11.72) and 200-meter dashes (23.67). He teamed with Jailyn Rolle, Alex Mark and Michael Presnell to win the 4 x 100 relay (45.91).

“Miguel won every event he was entered in,” Northridge coach Josh Fletcher said. “You can’t ask for anything more.”

Grant Bass had a big night for Concord, placing first in the 110 high hurdles (15.53), 300 hurdles (40.91) and anchoring the 4 x 400 relay to a win (3:58.57).

Others on the 4 x 400 were Giovanny Montoya, Jadon Chupp and Dominique Holt.

After Bass finished the final leg of the 4 x 400 he shouted “That’s the way to run a 400!” It took everything he had as Concord fell behind when one of their runners went down while exchanging the baton earlier in the race.

“Bass is a leader for our team,” Concord coach CJ Shafer said. “He runs the 400 well and the team looks to him for that. He gets emotional. In track it is not always good to do that, but he has a way of keeping it under control. He can use that to his advantage.”

Northridge has always been known for its distance runners and James Bradberry led a 1-2-3 sweep in the 3,200. Bradberry was first in 9:55.49, followed by Jacob Frost second in 9:56.4 and Blake O’Dell third in 9:56.69.

“Bradberry ran the 4 x 800, the 800, 1,600 and 3,200,” Fletcher said. “That is a lot to ask of a kid. He led us in the 3,200 and that sweep probably won us the meet.”

Former Goshen standout distance runner Jeff Payne is an assistant coach for the Raiders.

“The kids in the 3,200 listened to what Coach Payne and I told them,” Fletcher said.

Also for Northridge, Hunter Goodwin won the 400 (52.79), Devin Puckett pole vault (12-6), Neel Patel, Mike Linn, Travis Schlabach and Bradberry the 4 x 800 (8:31.00).

“Schlabach had a good night for us,” Fletcher said. “He ran the third leg of the 4 x 800 and 4 x 400. That is a lot to ask of a freshman.

“We also had a good night in pole vault with four guys over 11-6. That is consistent.”

Collin Chupp finished first in the 1,600 (4:34.13) for Concord.

“Chupp ran as far as you can ask a high school distance runner to run in a meet,” Shafer said. “He ran on the 4 x 800, in the 800, 1,600 and 3,200. He is another one of the leaders for this team. He has embraced that role. He might have been a little tired in the ,3200 but he was going up against three pretty good runners.”

Winning events for NorthWood were Ethan Killian shot put (50-6) and discus (139-1), Corban Wyatt 800 (2:50.67) and Devin Hunsberger high jump (5-10).

“I’m very happy,” NorthWood coach Scott Mikel said. “The last couple of seasons these were the kind of meets were we getting blown out in. I told the guys had we not given up nine points in long jump it would have been closer.

“Killian is already throwing over 50 in shot. He didn’t make that a year ago until much later in the season.”
