Irish Continue Breaking Records at CHSL Final

Competing at the CHSL A-B Championships at Catholic Central High School, the Notre Dame Track and Field ield teams produced three individual league champions while continuing a trend of breaking school records this spring.  Overall, the boys team placed fourth in the team result and the girls team was fifth. Fresh off breaking the school record in the 1600m run at the regional meet, senior Nathan Mylenek set his sights on the 800m run mark held by Chris Burns since 2010.  Mylenek didn’t leave anything for chance, breaking the record by more than two seconds with a time of 1:55.20, to finish first in the race.  Mylenek then joined seniors Brendan O’Sullivan, Aidan Schurig, and Matthew Durkin to finish second in the 4x400m relay while also breaking the school’s one year-old record in 3:30.86. Senior Patrick Anger joined O’Sullivan, Schurig, and Durkin in the 4x100m dash to finish second and break their four day-old school record with a time of 43.63.  The same group raced to a third place result in the 4x200m relay in 1:32.50.  Anger also placed fourth in the long jump with a leap of 20’ 3.25”. Junior Brendan Fraser took top prize in the 3200m run, easily outpacing his nearest competitor with a time of 9:31.94. Senior Andrew Durkin finished sixth in the 110m hurdles in 16.98. On the girl’s side, senior Claire Bolden led the way with a huge win in the 400m dash in 57.32 followed by a second place finish in the 200m dash with a time of 26.11. Sophomore Lauren Neiheisel scored a second place finish in the 800m run in 2:25.73.  Freshman Lexi Case placed fifth in the 800m run in 2:31.40, but earlier in the day placed third in the 1600m run with a time of 5:34.53.  Freshman Paige Gollinger advanced to the 100m final and placed fifth in 13.62. In relays, the 4x100m team of Gollinger, sophomore Katelyn Kozole, senior Chanel Dore, and senior Caitlin Fitzgerald was fourth in 52.97 and Kozole, Gollinger, Fitzgerald, and sophomore Destiny Sandle teamed up for a fourth place result in the 4x200m in 1:55.41.  Dore also placed in the shot put with a toss of 35’ 2.75”, good for second.
