Lake’s Powell first at Lakota Invite, SLL Jamboree
Lake senior Zack Powell went through the mile with three other runners, but by at the two mile he was all alone and pushing to the finish to win the Lakota Invitational's large school division 5K cross-country race in 16:04.

Senior teammate Louis Szilagyi set a personal best by finishing in sixth place in 16:58. Sophomore Nathan Scanlan again set his personal best by placing 29th overall in 17:52. Sophomore Riley Breese and junior Steve Stanley rounded out the Flyers scoring in 63rd and 92nd place of 185 runners. Freshman Drew Northcut, Trevor Walsh, and Tyler Coutcher all set personal records during this race as well. The Flyers finished in sixth place in the team race out of 16 teams.

At the second Suburban Lakes League cross country Jamboree held at Elmwood, Powell took charge at the 1½ mile mark to finish in first place overall. Szilagyi placed fifth overall, Scanlan and Breese finished in 13th and 29th. Stanley rounded out the Flyers scoring by placing 40th overall. The Lake boys team placed third of seven teams competing, just missing second by four points.

Genoa football coach Mike Vicars knows this much about Eastwood senior

running back Cody Seifert.

"He's the fastest kid in the league," Vicars said.

Seifert will use his speed to test Genoa's stingy defense when the two Suburban Lakes League teams square off Oct. 2 in Genoa.

Seifert (5-10, 170) was a state-placer in the 100-meter dash at the Division II state track and field meet as a sophomore, and he was a state qualifier again last spring.

"We won't have anybody who can catch him," Vicars said. "He's faster than Blair (Skilliter, former Genoa back). He is a hard runner and he's not the only weapon they have. Obviously, he's one of their primary weapons. If he slips past the line of scrimmage, we'll have a hard time catching him. We have to keep him pinned in, which most teams haven't been able to do."

Eastwood's wrestling team should have more than enough room to sprawl out in the years to come.

Although it has yet to be completed, the school's new steel-structure wrestling facility covers 6,000 square feet and is located between the administration building and the football stadium. The facility is more than three times as large as the old wrestling facility, which is located in the high school auxiliary gym.

Rob Eaton, who serves as a board member of the Eagle Wrestling Club, is the general contractor for the project. The Eagle Wrestling Club, a non-profit organization, consists of nearly 100 parents of current and former Eastwood wrestlers and serves more than 100 biddy, middle school and high school wrestlers in the Eastwood district.

"A number of companies have donated labor and supplies that have helped keep our costs tremendously low," Eaton said. "The facility is going to provide a practice area, full locker rooms, handicap accessible bathrooms that will be utilized by not only the wrestling team but by the community at any event held on the Eastwood campus. Also, there will be a ticket window at one end for overflow ticket sales."
