LANDER — Corry’s girls captured their first win of the track and field season beating Eisenhower on Tuesday, 89 1/2-51 1/2, while the Beaver boys lost to Ike, 74 1/2, 65 1/2.

“I’m really happy for our girls, we really stepped up in several events,” said coach Andy Potocki, who once coached volleyball at Eisenhower. “This is such a wonderful group of young ladies, and I’m glad they got to experience some success.”

Lindsey Flick qualified for districts in the shot put and she finished second in the discus. “It was a great night for her,” said Potocki. “It was also nice to see Katie Meerhoff come up with wins in both hurdle events."

Sam Bickerstaff won the 100, Autumn Sterling the 200 and Sam Owens the 3200.

Rachel Munsee was first in both the 1600 and 3200, and part of two winning relays with Owens.

The boys gave it a shot as coach Andy Passinger returned to his old stomping grounds at Eisenhower.

Nathan Smith won the high hurdles, Jordan Wingard the 1600, Dave Hajec the 100 and Shawn McCray the 3200 (see photo above).

Alec Gluvna took firsts in the shot put and discus.

“Yet again we had some more guys step up to the challenge when we needed them, but we still fell short because we didn't have our whole team,” noted Passinger. “We were missing a couple of distance guys who would have changed the loss to a win.

“Until we have a complete team showing, we are going to continue coming up short,” he claimed. “On another level, we lost by 9 and it's quite interesting that once again, because Warren County won't commit to its pole vaulters, we weren't able to use pole vault points, which would have at least given us the tie.

“I am willing to call it a tie for our athletes at this point,” he said. “With no (home) track, no lines or lanes, no exchange zones, no hurdles, and limited high jump practices, these kids are not willing to give up. And that's a wonderful credit to them.”

CAHS competes next at the North East Invitational on Saturday.
