Cadets track squads fifth at WCC

The Cascade boys' and girls' track teams both finished in fifth place in the West Central Conference track meets at South Putnam on Friday night. 

Cascade's boys finished with 72 points in a tightly packed battle for team placements with Monrovia (111.5) scoring the victory over Greencastle (98.5). On the girls' side, Greencastle outdistanced Monrovia 143-128 to claim the team title, with Cascade pulling in 40 points..

Boys' coach Tim Whicker had a trio of standouts prove themselves among the very best in the conference. Zac Butler and Kyle Harbison were both double winners, while distance runner Mac White garnered a pair of second places.

“Overall, we did well,” Whicker said. “Other than one injury, it was a good night. We had a bunch of (personal records) in the meet. That injury might have made a difference of about three or four points for us.”

Butler claimed his first places in the 100 and long jump before suffering an injury in the 4x100 relay. Harbison made it a clean sweep for the Cadets in the sprint races as he crossed the line first in the 200 and 400.

Meanwhile, White logged some mileage on the track and came home second in both the 1600 and 3200.

“Mac did really well in setting personal bests in both of the distance races,” Whicker said. “Zac  had a great meet... before he got injured.”

As a team, the Cascade girls found the results a bit thin, but senior Megan Frederick put in a yeoman’s effort by placing second in the 800, third in the 1600, and third in the 3200. 

As if that weren’t yet enough, Frederick also placed third in the pole vault, a combined effort that Cascade girls coach Kristi Newcomer was especially proud of.

“Megan is a wonderfully hard worker and has a great positive attitude,” Newcomer said. “She gives it her all with everything she does. Overall, I think she was pleased with how she did, and we are just as excited with how she did.”
