From staff reports

GAYLORD — Tommy Roush set another school record as Traverse City West knocked off Big North Conference foes Cadillac and Gaylord in a double dual meet.

West defeated Cadillac 95.5-76.5 and Gaylord 97-60.

Roush — who broke the shot put record last week — this time set a new discus mark with a heave of 168’11”. He also won the shot with a 52’6” throw.

Connor Priest took the pole vault, clearing 11 feet. John Sheehan’s leap of 5’10” won the high jump.

Zach McGuire claimed the 100 in 11.5 seconds, and Jack Bishop took the 200 in 23.3.

West’s two other double winners came from the 400 and 800 relay teams. The 400 team of Cam Rainey, Dominic Teeples, Grant Balino and McGuire won in 45.8 ticks, while the 800 quartet of Dan Phifer, Donovan Michael, Teeples and Bishop took their race in 1:35.3.

The Titans compete Friday at the Graves-Swayze Relays in Midland.
