Prep Sports Roundup: Trojans win BNC championships

TRAVERSE CITY — The domination was fairly complete.

Traverse City Central ran away with both the boys and girls Big North Conference championships Wednesday at Traverse City.

The boys rung up a meet-record 238.5 points, more than double runner-up West’s 108.5 total. Alpena was third (102.5), followed by Cadillac (64), Ogemaw Heights (54.5), Gaylord (41) and Petoskey (30).

The Trojan girls didn’t win by as quite as huge a margin, but also broke the BNC meet record with 216 points. West was second at 146, followed by Cadillac (79.5), Gaylord (72), Petoskey (53.5), Alpena (42) and Ogemaw (29).

“That’s really a satisfying end to the regular season,” Central boys coach John Lober said.

For Central’s boys, it’s the sixth straight BNC crown — something that hasn’t been accomplished before in league history. It’s also the Trojans’ 11th title in the conference’s 17-year history. The girls won their 12th Big North crown and fifth consecutive.

Alex Liggett and Anthony Berry both set individual BNC records as well.

Liggett won the 110 hurdles in 14.68 seconds, besting the previous mark of 14.71 by former Trojan Blair Bell in 2009.

Berry broke two record that were both at least a decade old.

He smashed the 1,600 best of Petoskey’s Van Tate from 2004 (4:23.81) by running a 4:21.04.

Berry also topped TC Central’s Blake Terhune 2001 record (1:58.6) with a 1:58.22.

In both events, he led a Trojan sweep of the top three spots, as Cam McAuliffe and Keefer Edwards were right behind in the 1,600 and Edwards and Chris Brower in the 800.

Liggett added a second place in 100 in 11.36 and a personal-best time of 22.98 in the 200 to take third. Drew Girard-Pampu’s personal-best 200 time of 23.3 was good enough for fifth.

The 400 relay quartet of Liggett, Girard-Pampu, Anthony Kratovil and Sean Williams ran a season-best 43.87 to take first, while the 800 relay team of Girard-Pampu, Kratovil, Rhys Adle and Josh Belcher won in 1:31.45.
