PREP TRACK AND FIELD: Sweep for the Falcons

BENTON — It was a rainy night in Benton.

But that didn’t seem to deter the Fairfield Falcons as they posted a 78-54 win over the visiting Lakeland Lakers Tuesday in NECC action.

One of the keys for the Falcons was a 16-2 swing in the throws. Falcon senior David Miller took first in shot out (46-5 1/2) and classmate Kyle Ostrander second (46-0 1/1) while Ostrander won discus (142-10) and Miller was second (140-10).

“I never expected that kind of point swing in the throws,” Fairfield coach Bob Miller said.

“One of the things we told the kids after the meet is this shows how every point in a meet like this is important.

“David (Miller) and Kyle (Ostrander) have been leading our throwers all season. They are getting better, but neither one is at their best yet. I’m looking forward to when they will be peeking. Both of them are very talented throwers.”

Senior Brett Baumgartner turned in his usual all-around effort by winning the 100 (11.92) and 200 (23.02) dashes and anchoring the 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 relays to first-place finishes.

He teamed with freshman Mitch Dewitt, junior Cameron Kitson and senior Dillon Lockwood in the 4 x 100 (44.81) and with junior AJ Mast, sophomore Kegan Showalter and senior Alex Mast in the 400 (3:37.79).

“The 4 x 400 impressed me,” Miller said.

“Their time is a nice one and especially so since it came at the end of a meet on a very rainy night. It also has been a busy week for us.”

The Falcons won the Class B title at the Goshen Relays last Saturday for the fifth consecutive season and on Monday night defeated Central Noble 117-15 in a makeup conference meet.

“We have guys that are going to need a good day of rest on Wednesday,” Miller said.

“Competing on a night like this comes down to mental toughness and our guys rose to the occasion. I’m proud of them.”

Also winning individual events for the Falcons were senior Alex Mast 400 (53.26), senior Dillon Lockwood long jump (19-0) and junior Cameron Kitson 110 high hurdles (16.18) and pole vault (12-6).

Lakeland junior Joseph Trost won the 800 (2:06.40), 1,600 (4:46.30) and 3,200 (10:09.50).

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?
