Neither of the Fruitport track teams took home any trophies or first-place medals at their own Fruitport Invitational on Friday.

But both teams finished near the middle of the pack against talented competition, and lots of Fruitport athletes did very well.

As Trojan boys coach Randy Johnson put it, “Medals went to the top six individuals and top three relay teams. We brought home a lot of medals.”

In the boys competition, Fruitport finished fourth out of eight teams with 77.5 points. Berrien Springs won the boys championship with 120 points.

The Trojans had multiple athletes do well in several events.

In the pole vault, Fruitport’s Levi Glynn and Alex Wilber finished second and third, respectively, both clearing 10 feet.

In the long jump, Nathan Carlisle took second place with a mark of 18-8, while SeanPaul O’Brien was fifth.
