Track

Rochester 73, Manchester 65, Wabash 23 (girls, Tuesday)

Macie Nelson, Kennedy Jackson and Madilyn Calloway won two events each for the Rochester girls track team in a win over Manchester and Wabash in a three-way meet at Barnhart Field Tuesday.

Nelson won the 100 hurdles and the pole vault. Jackson won the discus and shot put, and her shot put throw of 39-2 was a personal best. Calloway won the 800 and 1,600 and claimed a third blue ribbon when she anchored the 4 x 400 relay that also consisted of Audrey Wagoner, Emily Basham and Kendyll Bradley.

Other Rochester individual event winners included Kenzie Bradley in the 200 and Zoe Seward in the 3,200.

Rochester also won the 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 relays. The 4 x 100 relay consisted of Kasey Gray, Kendyll Bradley, Savanah Eccles and Lilly Watson.

“Another key performance came from senior Kenzie Bradley,” Rochester coach Ryan Helt said in a statement. “After sitting out most of the indoor season and the opening meet of the outdoor season due to hamstring tightness, Bradley made her 2022 outdoor debut with a clock-adjusted 13.14 in the 100, just shy of her PR (personal record) of 13.07, set last year’s regional final at Goshen, where Bradley finished sixth. Next, she ran the opening leg of the 4x100. At 53.24, she and teammates Savanah Eccles, Lilly Watson, and Kasey Gray ran the fastest 4 x 100 since the 2011 record breaking team of Katlyn Sawyer, Brittany Rife, Callie Richard, and Ashley Minix ran a 52.99 in 2011. She concluded the night with a win in the 200 in 29.14.”

Kenzie Bradley and Eccles were second and third, respectively, in the 100. Kendyll Bradley was second behind Calloway in the 800. Araceli Ochoa was second in the 3,200 behind Seward. Wagoner was third in the 400. Lucy Rangel was third in the 1,600. Ella Brooks was fourth in both the 100 hurdles and long jump. Lilly Watson was fourth in the 200.

Manchester 74, Rochester 64, Wabash 28 (boys, Tuesday)

In the boys meet, Rochester athletes won five individual events and the 4 x 800 relay, but the Zebras finished second behind Manchester but ahead of Wabash.

Zach Pickens won the 400, Dylan Steininger won the 3,200, Braxton Mencias won the long jump, Marshall Fishback won the shot put, and Dustin Siebert won the pole vault for the Zebras.

“The seniors for the boys team came through on Tuesday. Braxton Mencias took first place in the long jump for the second meet in a row with a leap of 18’ 8”, a personal best. Marshall Fishback took first in shot put with a 46’ heave. Dustin Siebert tied a PR in pole vault with a 12-0 jump, good for the win. Zach Pickens ran a 52.64 in his first open 400 of the season, easily taking first place. Dylan Steininger won the 3200 in a showdown with Manchester’s Raven King that somewhat mirrored their close race in last year’s Three Rivers Conference championship meet,” Helt said in a statement.

Steininger also ran a leg on the victorious 4 x 800 relay team along with Peyton Hiatt, Chris Rohr and R.J. Keranko. Their time of 8:29.9 is faster than the 8:33.9 that the same foursome ran at the 2021 Plymouth sectional.
