Boys Varsity Track · Boys Varsity Track finishes 21st place at State Finals


  Place Points
Grand Rapids Christian High School 21st 11

Track and Field is measured in quarter inches and hundredth of seconds as the Eagles can attest to at the State Finals on Saturday in Zeeland. In a meet filled with weather delays, and didn’t end until 1:00AM, the Eagles came up just short a few times. Charles Thiam ran a great prelim 110 hurdles, but came in 9th, just .01 seconds out of making the finals and earning all state. The 4×100 team came just short of a perfect handoff on the last leg, but the near miss proved the difference in another all state performance as well. The 4×800 team ran a PR, but finished just 2 seconds out of a medal. On the positive side, Thad Gamble finished third in the 100 meter dash, earning a spot on the podium. ( again, just .01 out of second.) Finally Zach Veenstra took to the track and ran a huge PR to finish 4th in the 300 hurdles. His epic final 50 meters, complete with a dive across the finish, was a sight to witness.
