Mentor boys track team is off to a solid start

The Mentor boys track team started the season strong with a victory at the Lakeside Icebreaker on Saturday.
The Cardinals totaled 147 points and set several meet records along the way.
First place finishers included Andy Stevenson in the shot put (50-5) and discus (163-5). Both distances were new meet records.
Brian Palmer, Greg Blevins, Jesse Kovitch, Kyle Muenker won the 4x800 relay in a meet-record time of 8:34.75.
Joe Shaker won the 3200 in 10:13.
Colton Wallace won three events. He set a new meet-record in the long jump (22-3) and also won the 100 dash (11.47) and high jump (6-2). He was third on the  4x100 relay.
This is a great sign for the Cardinals who have 115 boys athletes on their roster. They have the experience, depth and talent to make it far in the postseason.
Winning these early-season meets helps boost confidence and gives the Cardinals momentum heading into their next meet.
There's no doubt the Cardinals are one of the top boys track teams in the area.
