Esky takes 2 silvers

Justin St. Ours | Daily Press Escanaba’s Kahler Geyer anchors the 800m boys relay during a triangular meet Friday between Escanaba, Gwinn and Marquette at Escanaba.

ESCANABA — Marquette provided some stiff competition here Friday as it swept both ends of a triangular track meet.

The Marquette boys scored 92 points, followed by Escanaba 61 and Gwinn 20.

“We had some real good performances,” said Marquette coach Kyle Detmers. “Escanaba and Gwinn also had some nice performances. Derek Douglas had quite a day for Esky.”

The Marquette girls collected 105 points, followed by Esky 57 and Gwinn 10.

Douglas, whose plans are to run track and cross country at St. Scholastica College in Duluth next season, won the 800-meter run in two minutes, 8.34 seconds and 1600 (4:58) on this cloudy, chilly and windy day.

“Derek had a good day,” said Esky coach Scott Dykema. “He wanted to break five minutes in the 1600 and said he had more in the tank. We have some good sprinters, but struggled in the relays because we had some guys missing. Marquette has a great team. It’s fun to watch them run.”

Esky’s Trevor DeGrand won pole vault at 10 feet, and Reilly Huskey and Joey Kositzky shared first in high jump at 5-2.

Marquette’s Cayden Dahlin was a double-winner, taking shot put (34-4 1/2) and discus (118-7) and Gwinn’s David Duvall captured the 110 hurdles (15.84) and long jump (19-10).

Senior Kameron Karp added a victory in the 200 (23.76) and was runner-up for the first time this season in the 100, won by teammate Owen Beauchamp (11.09).

“We had real good performances by Colin and Carson in the 3200 (10:22) and Lincoln Sager in the 400 (53.6),” said Detmers. “Those were real good times for the conditions. This was a good effort by our whole team.”

Esky junior Ciara Ostrenga won the girls’ 800 (2:36) and anchored the winning 1600 relay. Classmate Allison Korpi copped discus (97-11).

“It was a tough day, but I thought our girls performed pretty well,” said Esky coach Dan DeLong. “This was the first time Ciara run the 800 without running the open 400. She had a nice race, and Allison’s throw in discus was a personal-best. Morgan (Gartland) had kind of a breakthrough in shot, with this being the first time she threw in the 29s. Our pole vaulters did well. They’re improving in every meet. We’re just happy to get this meet in.”

Marquette sophomore Baux Truckey won the 100 (12.52 and 200 (27.0) and anchored the winning sprint relays, and Tianna Taylor achieved Gwinn’s lone first in shot put (30-8 1/2).

Esky visits Gladstone for a triangular meet Tuesday.
