The Brookfield Central boys track and field team finished fourth out of eight teams May 2 at the Greater Metro Conference Relays at Central.
Central had three first-place performances and three second-place finishes.
"I thought the conference relay meet was a good one for our team," Central coach Mark Pulkownik said. "We had some outstanding performances."
The 6,400-meter relay team (18:42.62) of Wes Vann, Gabe Poser, Danny Buck and Nick Petersson; the 3,200 relay (8:02.30) of Andrew Dusing, Riley Tsang, Amir Alwan and Carl Hirsch; and the shot put relay of Chikwe Obasih, (49 feet, 7½ inches), Danny Turelli (48-5) and Ryan Johnson (47-0) all won their events.
The distance medley took second (10:27.31) behind Brandon Meyer, Dusing and Alwan and Hirsch as did the pole vault relay of Elliott Yanasak (13-0), Chris Dubois (11-6) and Andrew Brath (9-6) and the high jump relay of Donnell Ward (6-0), Joe Baker (5-3) and Vantwan Melton (NH) finished fourth.
"The high jump team was a nice surprise finishing second," Pulkownik said. "The 6,400 relay team had a great race. The 3,200 relay ran a good race as well. The group of distance runners are getting close to the school record. The shot relay had a consistent meet with Danny Tureilli having a personal record."
The 800 relay (1:33.46) of Meyer, Marcus Crumm, Jason Toney and Brath finished fourth. The 330 shuttle hurdle relay (52.80) behind Rob Rossmiller and Ryan Jehly and the 300 hurdles relay of Alex Espada-Hernandez (43.36), Ryan Jehly (46.56) and Robert Rossmiller (46.84) each finished fifth.
The 1,600 relay (3:36.21) behind Meyer, Griffen, Espada-Hernandez and Poser and the triple jump relay of Melton (40-8), Ward (36-9½) and Julian Plant (36-½) also took fifth.
The 400 relay (46.04) of Toney, Melton, Dan Seaman and Crumm and the 800 sprint medley (1:42.48) of Crumm, Toney, John Dusing and Melton were seventh and two field event relays rounded out the scoring with eighth-place finishes.
The long jump relay of Seaman (17-8¾), Plant (16-8) and Meyer (16-0) and the discus throw relay of Turelli (114-0), Johnson (104-0) and Dubois (96-5).
Brookfield East won the title (109 points), Marquette was second (80) and Menomonee Falls (34) was third ahead of the Lancers (70). Following Central were Hamilton (66), West Allis Nathan Hale (46), West Allis Central (42) and Wauwatosa East (19).
The Lancers depth is presenting a good situation for Pulkownik and his staff.
"If we continue to have great performances the athletes are going to give the coaches something to do with the regional entries due in a couple of weeks. A nice problem to have."
