BIG NORTH CONF FINALS

WOW - what a crazy day.  TCWest girls beat TCCentral girls (who are ranked #3 in the state) in the finals BNC race.  TCW boys beat TCCentral boys for the conference title.  Petoskey boys beat Cadillac (who were at one time ranked top 10 in the state)  Just goes to show you that at this point in the season ANYTHING can happen!!!!!!!

FULL RESULTS HERE - RESULTS

For the Blue Devils - Congrats to ALL-CONFERENCE runners Zak Goddard and Carlie Martella.  Both had good races today to earn these honors,  Well done!!

As a team the boys had a hard pill to swallow - 6th in the conference.  I am happy to say that this is about as happy as I have even been with a 6th place.  There are 4 teams fighting it out in our regional for the remaining two state finals qualifying spots behind Fremont - Cadillac, Petoskey, Ludington and Gaylord.  Today we were closer to Cadillac than we have been ALL season and we have beaten Petoskey twice this season.  I truly believe, with some rest next week, and some good races from our top 5 the boys team CAN qualify.  Zak's effort was almost as good as his run at TCC two weeks ago and earning All-conference honors is a fine pat on the back.

On the girls side we again topped Petoskey and got a little bit closer to Cadillac.  Carlie's race wasn't the race she had hoped but it was enough to earn All-conference after 4 years of hard work.  Brianna Martin made a very nice step up closing the gap between her and Carlie.  The girls have been steadily improving their times and efforts and today we ran "ok" - I am hoping with some rest next week we can change that from 'ok' to "we ran great" when it comes time for regionals.


reminder - parent meeting at GHS on Wednesday 10/19 at 6pm to talk about our home invitational and regionals.
