Schubert won a silver medal in the 100-meter high hurdles Friday with a time of 15.94 seconds. Schubert finished behind Faith Lubner of Reedsville who took first in 15.58. Schubert won a fourth-place medal in this event last year when Lubner won the gold.

On Friday Schubert captured a sixth-place medal in the long jump with a 17-2 performance. The winner was Shell Lake’s Nicole Mikula with 18-4¾. Schubert placed second last year.

“Sonia felt very positive and rested, especially about the hurdles. She ran an exceptional race, and had good technique and focus, and had the best start out of the blocks this year,” said EL-G head coach Joe Greuel.

The top-six finishers in each state event earned medals and the top eight scored team points.

Plymouth had three athletes who competed at the D-1 level. Junior Derek Novotny finished 12th in the boys long jump with a season-best 21-9½. Junior Mason Guell placed 22nd in the boys triple jump with a 40-10 effort. Sophomore Cece Huhn took 12th in the girls discus with a throw of 117-0.

“All three of our athletes performed well at state. It is a great experience to compete against the best in the state and all three of them represented themselves and our team very well,” said PHS head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

Senior Kjersten Grinna of Howards Grove participated in the D-2 girls 300 low hurdles and the 200 dash. Grinna finished 16th in the 300 lows preliminaries in 52.68 and was 15th in the 200 prelims with 26.95. She didn’t qualify for the finals in either event.

The Elkhart Resorters competed in four other state events. Senior Camrie Schmitz ran in the girls preliminary 100 and 200 dashes. Schmitz sustained a hamstring injury in the 200 prelims Friday which sidelined her the rest of the meet.

Schmitz qualified for the 100 finals after taking eighth in the prelims in 13.12 but was unable to race in the finals due to her injury.

Elkhart’s girls 400 relay finished 12th in the prelims and didn’t make the finals. The relay team of Schmitz, sophomore Mia Rentmeester, senior Lauren Boos and Schubert ran a season best time of 51.92.

Resorter freshman Finn Shields placed 13th in the boys discus with a 130-6 performance.

“Camrie pulled her hamstring as she came out of the blocks in the 200 meters in preliminaries. Unfortunately, she was unable to run in both events on Saturday. It was very disappointing for her but she had an extremely good year and had the best times in Division 3 in the 100 and 200 most of the season.” said Greuel.

“Overall, I was very proud of our athletes and of our track season as a whole. Everyone had their personal bests at the end of the season.”
