Competition Brings Out the Best

Wednesday, May 26 2021 - SPC Tri Meet Oswego East and West Aurora

This year has been all about competing regardless of who we are up against. And Tuesday night we continued to build on that mentality. We had lots of both event winners but also heat winners who were propelled to strong times despite less than ideal condition in the rain and wind.

Connor O’Leary took first in both the 100 and 200. Anthony Nieves took 2nd in the 200 as well.   (2nd overall) Patrick Todd had a PR in the 100, Chris Frazier in the 400, Logan Bown in the 100 and 200, Colby Williams in the long jump, 100 and 200, and Richard Todd PRd in the high jump as well as a 3rd place finish in both the 400 and 100. DJ Pearson ran just over his PR in an epic battle to win his heat in the 100. 

Gavin Schryer took a big W with a PR in the shot put going over 12.19 for the first time officially in a meet. Nathan Lusk also added a PR in the discus. Nick Syron took 2nd overall in the discus.

The distance crew took a win and 1st and 2nd finish in the 800 with Aiden Haughian and Mike Forbear both running PRs of 2:01. Alex Rojo, Paul DeAvila and Kyle Schick all set PRs in the 800 as well. In the 1600 Henry Matson broke 5 for the first time, Aaron Wyckoff took the overall win, Jayson Matula ran a 15 second PR, Raymond Churchill ran a .07 PR, and the distance 4x400 took the overall victory with 3 PRs for the 4 guys, Mike Forbear, Paul DeAvila, Alex Rojo, and a monster anchor leg from Jason Zigmant.

The Wildcats are back in action this weekend as they host Plainfield North, Plainfield South and DeKalb.
