CHURUBUSCO â€” The Eagles extended their streak to six.
Thatâ€™s what happened Saturday when Churubuscoâ€™s boys track and field team won the â€™Busco Invite. The Eagles have now won their own invite every year since 2008.
The run began in Head Coach Zach Dockâ€™s second year with the team.
â€śTo win six straight is pretty important to our kids,â€ť Dock said.
Weather conditions were not conducive to the running, jumping and throwing that the high school athletes were doing.
â€śWe were mentally prepared for the cold weather, snow, rain and all those things,â€ť said Dock. â€śWe had a lot of our best times in this weather. That says a lot about our kids.â€ť
Churubuscoâ€™s victory over the other eight schools competing in the invite was decisive. The Eagles scored 193.5 points, while Manchester came in a distant second with 75.5 points.
Churubuscoâ€™s trackers persevered to win nine of the inviteâ€™s sixteen events.
Top contributors for the Eagles included Davon Geiger, who won each of the four events he competed in. Geiger took solo victories in the 800-meter dash and the 1600-meter run. He also helped Churubusco win the 1600 and 3200 relays.
