Cadet boys' track team battles hard at NEIC meet


DECORAH - The Crestwood boys’ track team battled hard last Tuesday during its first meet of the season at the NEIC Indoor Meet held at Luther College. No team standings were recorded.
Dayton Swatek posted the highest finish for the Cadets as he placed third in the 400 dash in 58.74 seconds. Crestwood senior Michael Mashek took fourth in the 1600 (5:09.58) and he was fourth in the 3200 (10:55.14). 
Austin McAllister placed fourth in the long jump at 18 feet, 6.5 inches. The 4x800 team of Blake Murphy, Bryden Juelsgaard, Trevor Trende and Lucas McGee finished fourth in 10:16.29. Chris Guest was fourth in the 55 meter hurdles in 8.73.
“For our first meet of the season indoors, we did some good things,” Cadet Coach Chris Lentz said. “We showed some promise in some events, such as the shuttle hurdle relay and the high hurdles. Boston Ferrie had a personal record in the 1600 (5:39.71), and Michael Mashek ran well in the mile, too.”
The coach said the team has room for improvement, but he is pleased with the way they are competing hard.
“We still need to work on our starts,” Lentz said. “It will help us when we can work out on our track when the weather warms up. We still need to mix and match some guys in some events to give them the best chance to succeed, but it’s still early in the season.”
The Cadets will compete at the Waukon Invite March 30.
