In their own Brown City Invitational, the Lady Green Devils finished fifth in the standings with 69 points. North Branch, a Division 2 school, was the champion with 109.5 points. Meanwhile, Marlette was sixth and Sandusky finished eighth.

Junior sprinter Alexandra Hanson, ’16 Div. 4 state champ in the 400 meter dash, had a good start overall to the season. She anchored the winning 400 relay team that won in 1:54.88, joined by Sarah Woodall, Carly Randolph and Amethyst Millsap. However, she settled for second in the 400 (1:04.21), losing to Bad Axe’s Mikayla Beeler, who went in 1:02.09. Hanson was also second behind Beeler in the 200 and anchored the fifth place 1600 relay team.

Brown City, meanwhile, had a second place finish in the 3200 meter run from sophomore Whitley Blake (12:48.04).

Junior Emily Schaub had an impact on Marlette’s fifth place finish. She was second in the 100 hurdles (16.53), 4th in the 300 hurdles (52.74) and was on two second place relay teams (400 & 800).

Nearly all of Sandusky’s points came from Jess Kursinsky and Carolyn Caporuscio in the throws. Kursinsky won the shot put with a toss of 36’4/5” and was second in the discus (92’6”) while Caporuscio was second in the shot (34’4.5”) and third in the discus (91,’9”).
