PREP BOYS TRACK AND FIELD: Falcons, Redskins shine

Goshen, Central share Class A crown; Fairfield takes Class B

DUNLAP — The Goshen Redskins and Fairfield Falcons were among the big winners Friday night at Concord High School in the 43rd annual running of the Kelly Relays.

The Relays were the idea of former Concord track and field coach Dick Kelly. The event is a unique one as everything is in a relay format, including field events.

Goshen and Elkhart Central shared the Class A title with 100 points apiece. Concord was third at 74, followed by Northridge 45, NorthWood 34, New Prairie 29 1/2 and Plymouth 21 1/2.

Goshen won the title outright a year ago.

“The way we look at this meet since it is so close to our conference meet (Tuesday at Warsaw) is a great practice,” Goshen coach Brock Maust said. “We told the kids there were certain things they needed to do tonight and they went out and did them.”

Fairfield continued on a high-note by winning a fourth consecutive Class B championship by totaling 114 points. Earlier this season, the Falcons won a fifth straight Class B Goshen Relays title and on Thursday claimed the NECC regular season championship.

“Winning this title after running a meet last night is special,” Fairfield coach Bob Miller said. “We told the guys the way the spring has been these were the two best training days we have had. We had some great performances.”

Westview was second at 77 points, followed by Bremen 68, Jimtown 60, Whitko 34 and LaVille 21.

Falcon senior Alex Mast, Brett Baumgartner, Dillon Lockwood, Kyle Ostrander and Caleb Noble were athletes Miller highlighted.

“Those guys have had an amazing four years,” Miller said. “They went 42-0 in the NECC over four years. If you add in the Goshen Relays and the Kelly Relays it’s 136-0.

“I’m really proud of them. It’s the best run we’ve ever had in school history.”

Baumgartner’s effort in the 4 x 400 relay was an effort Miller recognized.

“That was a great effort the way he came from behind to win,” the coach said.

Ostrander and David Miller were both parts of winning shot put and discus relays.

“Kyle and David have been so consistent this season,” Miller said. “Both are solid in the events.”

Goshen did well in the distance events and that was without one of their aces in Luke Kaufman.

“He’s home sick,” Maust said.

“Distance is one of our strengths. When the distance runners do well the team does well.”

Alfonso Torres and Abraham Medellin were two of the runners that filled in for Kaufman.

“Both did great jobs,” the coach said. “Abraham ran a 2:03 split on the 4 x 800 relay that won on 8:13.72. His time was a personal best by six seconds and the team a season best.”

Also on the relay were Reid Zimmerman, Ricardo Castillo and Torres.

Torres ran a 4:49 split on the distance medley relay.

“This season we have not had No. 1-types, but we have more depth,: Maust said. “Depth is what you need to win this event. We are looking to build upon this.
