PETOSKEY — Traverse City Central has gone back to back.

The top-5 ranked Trojan boys and girls cross country programs won their second straight Big North Conference championship at the conference finals Tuesday in Petoskey. 

Central's Drew Seabase finished first in the boys meet and Julia Flynn won the girls meet.

The boys had four all-conference runners, finishing five in the top-10 Tuesday. They were Seabase, Luke Venhuizen, Micah Bauer, Joe Muha and Matt Ritter. 

Coach Bryan Burns called Ritter, who finished eighth, an unsung hero.

"He was working on putting together a real complete race," Burns said. "Tonight he did it in difficult conditions."

Both the Trojans boys and girls programs won the JV races as a team.

West wins conference titles in golf, soccer

TRAVERSE CITY — Monday’s Big North Conference Championship may have served as a bit of a preview for what’s to come this weekend.

Traverse City West girls golf won the Traverse City Central Invitational with a team score of 333 in a tournament that featured eight teams — seven of which qualified for the state finals as a team and one that had an individual qualify.

West also took home the Big North Conference title, with TC Central finishing conference runner-up. The Titans finished with 35 points on the season and the Trojans had 26. Petoskey and Cadillac tied for third with 18, Alpena finished fifth with seven.

Monday’s tournament scores were doubled for sake of the conference’s season standings. The BNC plays five rounds and assesses points based on a team’s finish at them, the largest number of points awarded to the team that finishes first.

West’s Anci Dy was medalist in the meet, shooting 5-under 66 at the par-71 Traverse City Country Club. She also led the All-Big North Conference first team with an average score of 68.4 over six rounds. Ava Warren, Ainslee Hewitt and Ava Krueger joined Dy with first-team honors.

Central’s Grace Maitland and Alpena’s Kennedy Ellis rounded out first team.

The state finals begin Friday at Michigan State University’s Forest Akers Golf Course in East Lansing. Division 1 plays on the East course and Division 2 on the West course.
