Lakers', Trojans' girls track excels at WM Invite

Athletes from Spring Lake and Fruitport's varsity girls track teams proved they can compete just fine against competitors in larger Division 1 schools. Spring Lake standout sophomore Brittany Beeler ran to two individual victories and also was a member of the Lakers' victorious 3,200-meter relay squad, and Fruitport also had a pair of first-place finishes at the 33rd Meijer West Michigan Track Invitational at Reeths-Puffer High School. The meet is a collection of the best track athletes throughout the greater Muskegon area.

Beeler excelled in two events that she should also flourish in at next weekend’s Division 2 state finals — the 1,600 and 3,200 runs. Her time of 5 minutes, 18.26 seconds beat out a pair of Grand Haven runners — Natalie Myers and Julia Stock — in the 1,600 run. Later, she easily outdistanced the Bucs’ Kristi King by 17 seconds in the 3,200 with a finish of 11:39.74.


Grand Haven’s James DeWitt has flourished throughout the spring in the hurdles, and Thursday was no different.

The junior standout easily won the 110-meter hurdles with a 15.04 finish, and later squeaked out a win in the 300 hurdles with a time of 39.77 — breaking his own school record that he established last year.
