Bucs' track can't catch Rams

Rockford has long been a powerhouse on the track, and while Grand Haven has closed the gap considerably between the two programs, the Rams had just enough to edge the Buccaneers in both the boys and girls meets on Thursday. In the boys competition, Rockford dominated the sprint and relay events, clearing the way for a 72.5-64.5 victory. Rockford took the top two spots in the 100-meter dash, swept the top three places in the 200 dash, and won the 800, 400 and 3,200 relay events.

The Buccaneer girls came as close to Rockford as the have in 15 years, according to coach John Tarr, suffering an 80-57 loss.

Megan Newhouse and Jordan Keefe had great outings for the Bucs. Newhouse won the 100 hurdles in 16.38 seconds, with teammate Alex Schurkamp in second place. Newhouse also won the 300 hurdles in 49.51 seconds, with Grace Kendra third.
