Bulldog men’s varsity track team begins season with ‘solid start’

Bulldog logo (Chelsea Update would like to thank Head Track Coach Eric Swager for the information in this story.)

The Chelsea Men’s Track Team began its season with a solid start last weekend at the Huron Relays.

“We had a good chunk of guys turn in lifetime bests in the very first meet,” said Men’s Varsity Head  Track Coach Eric Swager.

Travis Weiss began the season with a personal best of 14’6″ in the pole vault, increasing his best vault by 5 inches.

Berkley Edwards’ 60 dash time tied the Division II meet record, and Jacob Stubbs victory in the mile was “an exciting, tight-fought battle,” Swager said.

The Bulldog’s 4×800 relay time is one of the top in the state for this early in the season, Swager said.

“We still need to solidify a few events, get our hurdlers back, and work on getting the main group of sprinters in shape, but overall we are pleased with the outcome,” he said of the second-place finish out of about 25 teams in the Division II meet.

The team heads to the MSU True Team Invite later this week.
