HILLSDALE, Mich. – The Lake Erie College track and field team was in action today as they competed in day one of the Hillsdale Wide Track Classic.
Head Coach Grant Lofdahl said "Overall, we had a pretty good day. Some things in the sprints and hurdles are starting to click. We had PRs from the Ettinger twins, Kenzie Patton, and a few others. Logan Ebersole and Brandon Bryan both ran a PR in the 3000 as well. Maybe the highlight of Day One was in the weight throw as Hannah Brehm-Gutting has been on the comeback trail from foot surgery last year, and she hit a big season best, very close to what she was throwing before the injury".
The Storm men were led by their performance in the 3000 meter run as Logan Ebersole (Chesterville, Ohio / Highland) and Brandon Bryan (Geneva, Ohio / Geneva) each set personal records with times of 9:03.92 and 9:15.47 respectively. The Storm had more personal records set by Steven Ettinger (Painesville, Ohio / Riverside) and Dustin Ettinger (Painesville, Ohio / Riverside) as they had time of 8:98 and 9:07 seconds respectively, in the 60 meter hurdles.
The Storm women were led by Hannah Brehm-Gutting (Edon, Ohio / Edon Northwest) as she won her heat in the weight throw. She threw a distance of 44 feet 6.75 inches, which is her season best. The Storm also received a solid performance from McKenzie Patton (Bellefontaine, Ohio / Bellefontane) as she had a personal best in the 60 meter dash, with a time of 8.12 seconds.
Lake Erie will wrap up the competition at the Hillsdale Wide Track Classic tomorrow (Feb.4).
