The Glen Lake boys and girls track teams hosted the Glen Lake Tri Meet Monday afternoon. Both teams finished second. The boys had 59 points, while the girls scored 52.

Kingsley won for both the boys and the girls with 106 points and 65, respectively.

“The kids have been working really hard,” Glen Lake boys coach Jason Bradford said.

“We ran really well today,” girls coach Paul Christiansen said. “We keep getting faster.”

Glen Lake’s boys swept the 100m dash, sending five runners to run in the first heat. Spencer Query won the event, crossing the line in 11.59 seconds.

The girls swept the same event, with Anna Spencer crossing first in 14.26.

“It’s been really nice,” Bradford said. “We’ve got some fast kids. They’ve been working hard coming out of the blocks.”


THE GLEN Lake girls finished second in the Glen Lake Tri Meet Monday. THE GLEN Lake girls finished second in the Glen Lake Tri Meet Monday. Arguably the most exciting finish of the meet was that of the 1600 meter relay. Glen Lake was in front for three of the four laps. Query, who was anchoring the relay for Glen Lake, got out to a 150 meter lead on Kingsley’s Jake Keena. Keena closed the gap over the next 200 meters, overtaking Query in the final straight. Kingsley took first with a combined time of 3:41.44, half a second faster than Glen Lake.

“He’s (Keena) a heck of a runner,” Bradford said. “The first two legs were really close. They were bumping arms in the corner in that second leg. Coming down to the end, I was wondering if (Keena) was going to catch (Query) or not. It was a good, exciting race. Quite a finish.”

Both Glen Lake teams will make the short trip to Suttons Bay to compete in the Garland Relays this afternoon.

Scoring for the meet will be different than normal scoring. Each team will send three runners, or relay teams, and the combined score will count for the top two.

“It’ll be interesting how we piece it together,” Bradford said. “We’re looking to be right in the mix.”

Christiansen, who will be missing the Relays to see his daughter graduate from Richmond University, said meets like that are good for his team.

“It’s always good to run against good competition,” he said. “It makes you run faster.”
