CARTHAGE — South Lewis juniors Brynn Bernard and Collin Stafford each won their respective steeplechase races to close out the Frontier League track and field championships Tuesday at Carthage.
Bernard took first in the 2,000-meter steeplechase with a mark 7 minutes, 35.30 seconds while teammate Mallory Kraeger finished third. South Jefferson’s Annabelle Renzi was second and Julena Grauel took sixth to help the Spartans edge Beaver River for the Frontier League team title, 148 to 147.5.
“I think this shows that track meets often come down to who finishes fifth or sixth and can be just as important as who wins,” South Jefferson girls coach Justin Crossway said. “Winning the league meet says a lot about our future.”
The Beavers’ Greta Kuhl and Hannah Moser were fourth and fifth, respectively.
In the boys’ 3,000 steeplechase, Stafford closed out a stellar league meet with his fourth victory of the event. The Falcons’ distance specialist won with a time of 11:09.90 while teammate MacCoy Maciejko finished second.
Beaver River junior Mason Zehr was third and Carthage’s Grant Gillman and Garrett Roberts were fourth and sixth, respectively. Indian River senior Hector Ramos grabbed fifth place.
Watertown held on to be team champion for the second straight season. The Cyclones finished with 154 points while the Warriors earned 141. South Lewis placed third with 120 points.
“Winning the league meet feels great because we came together as a team after losing to Indian River,” Watertown boys coach Brandon Marston said. “It was nice to rally and get the win.”
