Boys Track and Field off to a fast start at the University of Kentucky
February 21, 2014By Chris Davis of Bishop Brossart High School
The Boys track team took 19 runners, jumpers, and throwers down to the University of Kentucky this past Saturday. Led by Seniors Michael Caldwell, Drew Berkemeyer, Drew Miller, and Dutch Graus, the team held their own against the top schools of all classes in the state of Kentucky. The team got much needed experience against competition as they prepare for the Indoor State Championships on March 8th.
Michael Caldwell set a new 1 mile record set previously by Zack Holtkamp. Caldwell ran 4:37.89 and finished 7th out of 113 runners! Drew Berkemeyer had a solid day in the 60 meter hurdles and a 12 place finish in the long jump. Chris Loos and Dutch Graus also had very good performances in the 400 meter dash.
New comers Chase Britt and Gabe Roberts had very good performances in their first ever track meet. The team will be back in action at Mason County on February the 15th.
