Jack Wexler

For the second season in a row, boys track finished 4-1 through the regular season.

The team dominated every meet except for one, falling to Chippewa Valley for the second year in a row. ” I hated losing to the same team for two years in a row, but I definitely can’t complain” Senior Ray Bell said

The team had a very successful season, including multiple school records from high jumper Sam Narusch, and sprinter Peter Milne.

The squad started the season with an impressive win over a tough anchor bay team. It was close at first but then the team pulled away during the sprint relays. The final score of the meet was Utica 81.5 Anchor Bay 55.5.

for the next meet of the season, the boys traveled out to frigid Port Huron. The team dominated in a meet with ice cold winds on the home stretch. The final score was Utica 115 Port Huron 21.

The third meet of the season brought a very tough Chippewa Valley team to Swinehart Field. Last season, Chippewa came out with the win by 2 points. It was another close meet and once again Chippewa came away with the win, this time by 3 points. The final score was Utica 67 Chippewa Valley.

For the next meet, the team traveled to Henry Ford III High school. As expected the boys came out with a convincing win. Ford dominated in the field, but what Utica lacked was made up in the running events. Juan Walker won the 400 Meter sprint and the trio of Bell, Nicoletti, Wexler swept the 800 meter run. The final score of the meet was Utica 82 Ford 55.

The last meet of the season brought in Port Huron Northern. The team did very well all around. There were Utica scorers in every event. the seal on the meet was sophomore Angelo Pipitone and junior Jeffery Hitchcock going 1 and 2 in the two mile run. The final score of the meet was Utica 102 Port Huron Northern 35.

The team will be back on the track for the Regional, Division and County meets in the next couple weeks.
