On Wednesday the Hawkeye Cross teams were in action for the OK Green Conference meet. The boys team finished 2nd behind Zeeland West. Mark Freyhof finished first, earning All Conference honors. Andrew Fathman earned All Conference Honorable Mention. Matt Field once again didn’t run, as he is now going to miss the remainder of the season with a calf injury.
On the Girls side of things, Erika Freyhof finished second receiving All Conference honors, along side her sister, Audrey Freyhof, and Jennica Schaffer. Melinda Overbeek earned All Conference Honorable Mention by passing three opposing runners in the last 100 feet. The Girls’ team finished second at Wednesday’s meet, behind Holland Christian. However the Conference Championship is determined by a combination of dual meet results and the conference meet results, and since Hamilton had the best dual meet season, the Hawkeye Girls tied Holland Christian, sharing the conference crown.
The Hawkeyes are back in action on Friday for the Allegan County Meet at Martin Speedway.
