Lowell boys fall short at Northview

Despite a splendid performance from Matt Kyllonen, Lowell boys track team fell short in its meet against Northview, losing 74-54.

“We had a number of small victories and on paper I felt we should have won the meet,” said Lowell boys track coach Sarah Ellis.

Kyllonen had a grand day as he claimed firsts in the high jump, the 400M, 200M and had a leg in the winning 800-meter relay.

“I knew Matt would be a contributor this year, but we were surprised at how well he is doing in the high jump, he consistently is over 5’10”, his best being 6’1,” Ellis explained. Kyllonen cleared 5’10” to win the high  jump. He stopped the clock in a winning time of 54.78 to win the 400 meter run and his 24.3 took top honors in the 200 meter run.

The Red Arrow was the final leg in the Red Arrows’ winning 800-meter relay time of 1:40.1. Joining Kyllonen were Dylan Brower, Leighton Watson and Jacob Meyer.

It was Watson, Meyer, Brower and Robby Coffey stopping the clock in a winning time of 48.66 in the 400 relay.

Meyer raced home in 11.98 to claim the top spot in the 100-meter dash.

Bryce Hrusovsky won the 110 hurdles as he posted a winning time of 17.34. The Red Arrow also finished second (47.82) in the 300 hurdles.

Meyer (24.6) and Sean Khodl (2:13) were second in the 200-meter dash and 800-meter run respectively.
