Trio of Swathers Competing in 3 Events at State

Posted 5/24/2018

Elise Kaiser, Parker Roth and Reese Nebel each qualified for state in three events Thursday by placing in the top four at the regional meet Thursday, May 17, at Beloit.

Roth placed second in the 200-meter dash and third in the 100 by setting personal records in both of 22.51 and 10.89 seconds respectively.

“I PR’d in both, but I can run faster,” he said. “I had bad starts in both races.” Roth, Ayden Fleming, Mitchell Martin and Josh Roth placed fourth in the 400 relay (44.16).

Kaiser also is peaking at the right time by winning the 400 (59.55) and placing fourth in the 100 hurdles (16.04). Both were personal bests.

Hesston golf coach Grady Pauls had a little chat with Grant Brenneman on the 18th tee box Monday at Spring Hill Golf Course in Seneca.

Pauls said Brenneman “finished like a champion does” with a birdie on 18. 

Pauls said he talked all day about staying in the moment, and Brenneman stayed calm, not knowing whether he might end up in a playoff.
