Competing in his final Badger Challenge, Portage senior Trent Briggs put together a standout performance, as he finished in the top six in two events and the Warriors placed 11th in the 13-team meet held at Portage’s Bob Mael Field on Tuesday evening.

The top finish for Briggs came in the boys high jump, where he cleared the bar at 5 feet, 4 inches to finish in third place. He was one of four athletes to finish at 5-4, but due to missed attempts by the others, Briggs finished ahead of them all. Only Milton junior Ben Soergel (5-8) and Mount Horeb freshman Caden Thomas (5-6) finished ahead of Briggs.

Briggs also finished in sixth place in the 300-meter intermediate hurdles in 43 seconds flat. Reedsburg senior Jacob Dregney won the event in :40.86.

Most of the top finishes for the Portage boys came in the field events. Senior James Liegel was sixth in the long jump with a distance of 19-4. Mount Horeb’s Caden Lee won the long jump with a 20-6. Liegel also finished 11th in the triple jump when he reached 37-7¾.

Portage senior Mitchell Amend finished sixth in the pole vault, clearing 10-0. Sauk Prairie’s PJ Lane won the event as the only athlete to clear 11-6. Also finishing sixth for the Portage boys was junior Austin Mielke in the discus with a throw of 123-2.

Another notable performance for the Portage boys came from sophomore Garrett Lynch, who was eighth in the high jump (5-2).

The top finish for the Portage boys in the relay events came in the 400 relay, where the team of Alexander Horn, Hunter Collins, Jesus Bazaldua and Lynch finished seventh in :48.15.

The Portage girls finished in last place, but did have some notable individual performances. The Warriors’ top finish came in the 1,600 relay, where the foursome of Makenna Bisch, Genna Garrigan, Emma Kreuziger and Aivy Ta finished sixth in 4:41.66.

Portage freshman Carmen Ratz took sixth in the high jump (4-2) and Bisch in the triple jump (30-1).
