I’m sure many have heard the news by now, but the MHSAA Division 1 State Finals took place over this past weekend at East Kentwood High School. Competing at the meet for Dexter High School was Noah Gary (PV), Matt Greve (3200), Andy Dumont (PV), Casey Hanson (PV), Kamie Powell (PV), Dana Tessmer (PV), and Sarah Stone (HJ).
What most coaches, competitors, and families thought would end up being another miserable day (seemed to be the theme of the 2013 season) turned out to be one of the best days of this season!
Kamie Powell and Noah Gary both earned All-State honors placing 5th and 4th in the Pole Vault, while Casey Hanson (11′ 10″), Andy Dumont (12′ 10″) and Dana Tessmer (10′ 6″) all matched or flirted with their personal bests in the vault. In the High Jump, Sarah Stone cleared 5′ 0″ and Matt Greve ran 9:43 for 3200m. Although not a personal best for either of them, both are quality marks and displayed how tough it is to place on the podium at the State Finals.
Fun Fact: Matt Greve and Kamie Powell are the only 3-time Outdoor State Meet Qualifiers since Dexter went D1 for Outdoor Track & Field.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 4th is the Banquet! Please be at DHS and enter the commons by 7:00pm. We are not having a dinner/meal and will roll right into the presentations and awards.
