Brandywine sweeps Buchanan

Published 10:05pm Monday, May 6, 2013

BUCHANAN — The third-ranked (Division III) Brandywine boys track team won the Lakeland Conference regular season title with its 103-34 win on Monday over Buchanan. The Bobcats can win the league’s outright title with a first place showing in two weeks at the Lakeland Conference meet.

Brandywine also won the girls meet over Buchanan, edging the Bucks, 58-53.

“It’s great for the girls,” said Brandywine track coach Terry Borr. “The girls were really looking to beat somebody and they were finally able to do it. We moved some girls around and they stepped up and ran well. For the guys, it puts us undefeated for the year in duals and we’ve won three invitationals. But the guys know two weeks from now we get the chance to accomplish our goal. We’re working hard to win a regional championship.”

Leading the boys were triple winners Andrew Duckett (800 relay-1:35.71, 110 hurdles-16.31, 1,600 relay-3:45.14), Mike Shelton (800 relay, 1,600 relay, 400-52.59), Courtlan Gordon (800 relay, 100-12.13, 200-23.25) and Michael Robbins (800-2:12.45, 1,600-4:57.63, 3,200-11:23.35).

“Business as usual for the boys,” Borr said. “In fact, it was a day to get in shape. We’re working to get in better shape. We’re shooting for two weeks from now.”

Evan Hartman led the Bobcats in the field events with first place showings in the discus (165-5) and shot put (45-2). Hartman is the defending state champion in the discus.

“Hartman has got a goal to be a state champion again,” Borr said. “He knows there’s a kid out there (in the discus) that’s throwing 180 in Division III so everyday Evan is going to put his time in and really work hard. He’s really a technician at the discus.”

The Brandywine girls were led by triple winners Emily Pedzinski (1,600 relay-6:32.82, 1,600-7:15.38, high jump-4-0) and Emilie Bush (100 hurdles-21.60, 800 relay-2:31.09, 1,600 relay).

“It was really a team effort,” Borr said about the girls team. “If I had five more girls we probably could go undefeated in the conference. It’s just a matter of getting girls out for track. There’s three other strong (spring) sports that are doing well that I really respect. It’s hard to spread girls around in a small school.”

The top performer on Monday was Buchanan’s Brianna Dinneen in the girls meet. Dinneen was a four-time winner, placing first in the long jump (14-8), 100 (11.33), 400 (1:02.01) and 200 (25.73).
