CAAC Gold Finals Recap
The Panthers traveled to Charlotte Wednesday to compete in the CAAC Finals and finished in fourth place, behind Mason, Waverly, and Charlotte.
Highlights of the meet included Levert Franklin-Potter's victory in the 100m dash, and new personal best performances by junior Patrick Harris and sophomore Spencer Aldrich. Harris became the newest Panther to join the 13-foot club. He and Aldrich, who cleared 5'9" in the high jump, each placed third in their events
"I finally was able to turn and clear the bar," Harris said. "Everything is working the way it should."
Jacob Inosencio, who trained through the meet in order to be ready for the MHSAA State Finals on May 31, finished second in the 3200m run. "That race really hurt today," Inosencio said.
Freshman Lake Buseth continued to show how bright Western's future is by placing fourth in the 1600m run, and junior Sam Ellis improved with each attempt in the long jump, finished in fourth place in the event.
On Thursday, May 29, at 5:30 p.m. athletes, family and friends are invited to the men's team's end-of-season celebration in the Western High School Cafeteria.
We will hand out varsity and JV letters, four-year awards, the MVP and Coaches Awards, and medals from the Regional and CAAC Finals, the Selby Classic and the JV meet at Jackson.
Please email Coach Palmer (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let her know what kind of passing dish you're bringing (so we don't end up with ten tubs of potato salad and no pasta salad not enough broccoli salad.) If you can't bring anything, we still want you there, so we can say nice things about you.
Thanks, everyone, for all your hard work.
