SPORTS REWIND: A look back at 30-years from the TRIBUNE files

Making her Senior year count the most, former Lady Haymaker standout Gretchen Clark was named the MIAA Field Athlete of the Week for Women’s Track and Field, as a result of her record breaking effort in the high jump. On her home turf, Clark soared above the bar that was set at 5’9.25” to establish a new Pitt State School Record as well as a Stadium Record.  
Defending his home course, Lexington’s Nate Jaeger shot a course record score of 65 to win top honors and pace the Minutemen to win the team title at the Lexington Invitational held at Lakeside Country Club. Lex shot a combined team score of 299 to edge Kearney’s score of 301. Minuteman Cam Smith circled the course to the tune of a carded score of 74, to finish sixth overall.

Lindsay Hain and Lauren Pfister  were unstoppable and won all five of their matches at No. 1 Doubles. Sara Lauby and Brette Baldwin won four of five matches, which was good enough for first place at No. 2 Doubles.

Apparently they didn’t bother the Swedes very much as four of their top five earned medals on their home course, on their way to a 401-417 victory over runner-up Lexington. Cozad was third with 440. Tom Fecht of Gothenburg and Eric Jamros of Lex, set the pace early, firing first round scores of 38. But on the back nine, Fecht pulled away by carding a 34. Jamros entered the clubhouse with a score of 40 on the back nine. Fecht’s 72 was the low round of the day, and he was one of four Swedes to earn medals. Cozad’s Ross Beavers was the lone medalist for the Haymakers with a carded score of 81. 
Despite the stormy conditions, it was the McCook Boys that were creating the noise in racking up 205 points and the team championship at the Dutch Zorn Invitational Track Meet  that was cold, windy and threatened with tornadoes. Lexington was the runner-up in the team race with 104 points, while Gothenburg was third at 94 points. A pair of Minutemen won gold medals. In the long jump, Jeff Sykes soared 21’11.25” for the gold.
