The Wykons’ Casey Harrington is first across the finish line, winning the 100-meter dash during the Division 2 regional tournament May 17.

IRON RIVER—A gray, damp day was just fine for West Iron’s track team, as the Wykons had a big day during their Division 2 regional tournament, held at Nelson Field on May 17.
 The girls team rolled to first place with 75 points, well ahead of second place Westwood (41) and third place Ironwood (32). That was no surprise.
 The boys team, however, did raise a few eyebrows with a strong showing and a second place finish with 46 points. Ironwood won with 58, and Westwood was third at 33.


 Coach Dan Schive said most of the 12-point difference is because of pole vault—Ironwood swept the top four places; the Wykons don’t have a vaulter.
 The regional tourney decides qualifiers for the U.P. Finals in Kingsford on June 2, and there will be plenty of blue and white at Flivver Field.
 Fourteen girls qualified in 25 events, not including all four relay teams. Joanna Pellizzer and Rebekah Serbinski qualified in three individual events, and seven girls--Casey Harrington, Megan Miatech, Jaclyn Waara, Kylee Erickson, Alexis Golfis, Cassilyn Pellizzer and Sydnie Mazurek—qualified in two.
 Six girls—Harrington, Erickson, Waara, Shannon Penkivech, Carli Johnson and Konnor Tousignant—qualified in two relays. Four girls—Joanna Pellizzer, Harrington, Serbinski and Waara—will be involved in four different events, including relays.
