Teams of the Week: M-S boys' track & field in spotlight



Coach Keith Pogue's team won the 13-team Gene Ward Invitational in Champaign by four points. Cale McCormick (800), Jonathan Schaap (3,200) and Derek Bunch (shot put) won individual events, and the 3,200-meter relay was also triumphant.



The Chargers outscored two Big 12 Conference foes by a cumulative 5-1 margin to raise their winning streak to four matches. Kaitlynn Martinez had three of the goals. Grace Ayodele and Annie Regan each had a goal and at least one assist.



The Broncos ended a seasonlong losing streak in style, breaking a 6-6 tie with a 17-run sixth inning vs. Martinsville. Sadie Sawyer was 5 for 5, and Sophie Ozier was 3 for 3. Pitcher Lauren Winters, backed by an errorless defense, walked one.



The Panthers won four games in five days with different pitchers getting the decisions. Caleb Graybeal had two doubles against Fisher, two hits against Fieldcrest and a three-run homer to account for all the runs vs. Paxton-Buckley-Loda.
