GARDNER – Jack Mick and Charlie Koontz were among several members of the Louisburg Middle School eighth-grade boys track and field team to medal during Saturday’s Frontier League meet at Gardner-Edgerton High School.

However, Mick and Koontz were the lone athletes to win league titles.

The Wildcats dominated the pole vault competition as Mick cleared 9 feet to win the league crown. Teammate Trent Martin also cleared 9-0 and came in second, while Koontz medaled third at 8-6.

Koontz also came up big in the long jump for the Wildcats as he captured the league title with a leap of 18-9.

Louisburg got several points in those two events and the Wildcats finished seventh overall in the 9-team meet with 57 points. Pioneer Ridge won the league crown with 86 points and edged out runner-up Paola by one point.

Brayden White was just inches away from winning a league crown in the shot put. White finished runner-up with a throw of 42-1 and teammate Hunter Millbern was fifth at 37-4.5.

Louisburg’s Michael Waldron earned the third place medal in the high jump after he cleared 5-2, which was a personal record, and teammate Drake Varns was seventh at 5-0. Waldron also earned points in the discus as he finished seventh with a throw of 116-5.

The Wildcats had four runner-up finishes on the day, including two in the field events and two relays.

Cole Evans scored big points in two events for Louisburg. Evans was second in the shot put with a toss of 34 feet and later finished third in the discus with a throw of 95-3.
