New Richmond Invite Up Next For Boys Track And Field

Posted on: April 9, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  Following last week’s soggy and cold Coaches Classic, MHS boys track and field squad will head to the New Richmond Invite this week on Tuesday and Wednesday.   

 

A LOOK BACK:   Rain and severe storms put a damper on Wednesday’s preliminaries events of the Coaches Classic at Ross High School, with just a few events completed.  Thus most of the meet was held on Friday.

Milford boys finished the meet in 14th place.  Milford athletes placing in the top eight of each event were as follows:

  • 110 Meter Hurdles
    •    Manny Fernandez, 4th (16.47) 
  • 300 Meter Hurdles
    •    Manny Fernandez, 8th (44.39)
  • 400 Meter Dash
    •    Dustin Reynolds, 4th (52.73)
  • 1600 Meter Run
    •    Harris Craycraft, 8th (4:42.05)
