Prep Sports Roundup: Trojans sweep BNC titles

CADILLAC — Traverse City Central did something that’s never been done in the boys’ Big North Conference track championships.

The Trojans scored more than 200 points.

Central finished with 211 Wednesday to easily capture its fifth league title in a row. The 211 points broke the previous high of 184.

“We had great team balance across the board,” Central coach John Lober said.

Traverse City West took second with 111. The Titans were followed by Alpena (110), Cadillac (75), Petoskey (52), Gaylord (40) and Ogemaw Heights (7).

Senior T.J. Schwannecke led the Trojans, winning the 100 (11.36), taking second in the 200 and 400 and teaming with Alex Liggett, Anthony Kratovil and Jephte Jean-Claude to win the 400 relay (44.99).

Liggett won the 110 high hurdles (15.49).

Aaron Taylor claimed the long jump (20’.5”) and took second in the high hurdles and high jump.

Anthony Berry and Kyle Dotterrer went one-two in the 1600 (4:28.44 to 4:28.69), Dotterrer and Cam McAuliffe went one-two in the 3200 (9:48.38 to 10:02.52) and Chris Brower and Berry went one-two in the 800 (1:59.4 to 1:59.7).

West’s Tyler Johnson claimed the 200 (22.93), Gaylord’s Trae Hill took the 400 (50.46) and Alpena’s Josh Bell the 300 hurdles (41.46).

In the field events, Cadillac’s Riley Norman was first in the shot put (55’10”) and discus (166’3”). Teammate Aaron Hodges took the pole vault (14’) and Petoskey’s Louis Lamberti the high jump (6’4”).

Charlevoix wins LMC championship

Charlevoix won five events — including two relays — en route to winning the Lake Michigan Conference championship at Harbor Springs.

The Rayders put up 169 team points, followed by Harbor Springs (135), Traverse City St. Francis (102), East Jordan (75), Grayling (55.5), Boyne City (41), Elk Rapids (33.5) and Kalkaska (32).
