DASH Middle School Track Brookfield Academy Meet Report

Hello DASH families,

The middle school track team had a perfect day to run last Thursday, showing off its abilities at Brookfield Academy. We have had some great meets in the past on the Brookfield track, and this year was no exception.

In the 100 meters, Meg Mazza had another great run taking 4th. Amelie Kemmann broke her own DASH record with a 13.81 effort! Our 800 meter runners really got the fans noticing the DASH team. Lucretia Nyhart passed Faith Caspers in the home stretch with some great racing. The next race Andrea Beck led the whole way, breaking her own DASH record in the process. Christian LeSac followed that up with his own first place finish showing us his kick on the second lap. Ransom Nyhart, Matthew LeSac, and Zeb Caspers put up the best times of the day in their race. Meg Mazza and Amelie Kemmann set personal records in the 200 meters to highlight that race. Christian LeSac, Zeb Caspers, and Thomas Mazza looked fast in the 400 meters, finishing 2nd, 3rd, and 4th respectively. The 1600 girls race was one to get excited about as usual with Andrea Beck and Zipporah Caspers coming through with victories. Lucretia Nyhart and Faith Caspers both broke into the 6:40’s in their 5th grade race taking 2nd and 3rd. Ransom Nyhart and Matthew LeSac had their usual strong finishes in the boys race, with Ransom winning and Matthew coming in right behind. The little guys, Kevin Egan and Daniel Caspers, had everyone cheering as they kept pace with the big guys in a hard-fought race. We had three 4×400 teams that all ran great. The 7th grade team of Amelie Kemmann, Thomas Mazza, Andrea Beck, and Matthew LeSac took first by over 100 meters to cap a great day of running. Of course the DASH team does field events. Our shot putters were amazing. Amelie Kemmann and Kelaine Egan finished 2nd and 4th among the 7th graders, and Jon Fossell had a 38 foot throw that was literally jaw-dropping to win by over three feet.

It was a perfect day to run fast and set some good times, and that is exactly what we did. After I got a little help in reading the results, I couldn’t wait to get them in the Results Archive.  We have lots of photos to check out, too.  Thanks to the parents for getting everyone to the meet and prepared to run. Thanks to the athletes for giving their best, and being ready to run.  Thanks to Brookfield Academy for hosting the meet and letting us compete on their track. It was fun.

Take care,
Jim Caspers
