The Wykons’ Tyler Stafford crosses the finish line just ahead of Forest Park’s Jacob Siler in the 100-meter dash at the Niagara Invitational on April 26. Stafford won both his 100-meter races last week.
IRON RIVER—West Iron County’s girls track team has been unstoppable during the early part of the season, and nobody stopped them at two meets last week.
 The Wykon gals, coached by Kristi Berutti, earned first place at meets in Iron Mountain and Niagara. Meanwhile, West Iron’s boys were third at Iron Mountain and seventh at Niagara.
 The girls distance relay teams (1600 and 3200) won at both meets. On the boys team, Tyler Stafford was also a double winner in the 100-meter dash.

 Also winning events were Joanna Pellizzer (300 intermediate hurdles, 53.56), Kylee Erickson (800, 2:45.25) and Cassilyn Pellizzer (high jump, 4 feet, 7 inches).
