Now that the weather has finally allowed it, Peetz track is back in action. On Saturday, the Bulldogs made the trip to Holyoke for its small invite, which hosted just 13 teams.

Senior Colton Howell placed fifth in the 400-meter dash with a time of 59.89 seconds, then complemented that effort with another fifth-place mark, this time in the triple jump, after leaping 37 feet, 9.5 inches.

Sophomore Lyle Schumacher claimed the silver in the mile run after he clocked in at five minutes, 19.03 seconds, then placed sixth in the 110-meter hurdles with a mark of 21.25. Senior Grady White placed 11th in the discus finals after launching the disc 85-10.50, then managed 18th in shot put with a toss of 28–4.

Junior Khira Gipfert finished 25th in the 100-meter dash after crossing the finish line at 16.56, ahead of her teammates, freshman McKrai Dennison (30th, 18.25) and freshman Savannah Huls (31st, 18.41). Freshman Natalie Adels placed ninth in the 400 with a time of 1:19.38, then outperformed herself in the 800 with fifth place and a 3:13.87 mark.

Dennison finished 10th in the 100 hurdles at 38.94 while Adelsdoubled up with high jump, in which she placed 18th and cleared the four-foot bar. Gipfert took the lead for the Peetz girls in the long jump with 12th place and a hop of 10–9, and Huls complemented her with 19th in the same event at 8–6.

Gipfert rounded out her day with 12th in the triple jump at 24–2.50.

Now that the Bulldogs have their first meet under their belts, they will now prepare to head to the Dick Evans Invitational in Wray on April 20. They’ll join 15 other small schools for the competition, as long as Mother Nature allows it.
