Titan Seniors Wrap Up Track Careers
On Wednesday, May 26th, the Titans competed in their last CSL Triangular of the season, racing against Maine West and Highland Park. As the last open meet of the season, this was the final competition for many of our runners. Congratulations to everyone on a fantastic season! If your season is over we will need to collect your uniform ASAP! The uniforms should be returned clean and ready to be stored away for the cross country season. Please bring your uniform to practice after school or to Coach Hasenstein directly in the PE Office during the school day during finals week....your help with this process will be greatly appreciated.
As we wrap up the season, we'd like to highlight the Titan Distance seniors who have competed for the last time in their gold and blue singlets.
There's no better place to start than with 3200m, where Carter Adams and Luke Gregory represented the class of 2021. Carter finished in a time of 12:12, and Luke finished with an 11:23. While the heat did take a toll on them, they both raced hard and left it all on the track. Carter will spend his next four years at Case Western Reserve University. One of our cross country captains, Luke will be attending St. Olaf College in the fall. Congrats, boys!
Dane Branstrom and Matthew Finkel finished up their careers in the 800m run. Dane, who will be attending the University of Illinois at Urban-Champaign, finished with a time of 2:28.7. This was a season record for Dane. Matthew Finkel, another one of our cross country captains and a 2019 state qualifier in cross country, finished at 2:21.3. Finkel will attend the University of Michigan next year. Both of them dedicated 4 solid years to the program, and we couldn't be more grateful to have had them on the team.
Last, and certainly not least, was Preston Davidson in the 1600m with a time of 5:06. Preston was a member of our cross country team's top 7 this past year, and he couldn't have been a more valuable part of the team. Preston is an exceptionally hard worker, and his talents are sure to carry him far next year at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Congrats, Preston!
Thank you to our seniors for helping to make this program into what it is today.
