ST. MARYS — The DuBois boys track and field team won 13 of 18 events and swept the top three places in 10 of the 15 individual events on its way to a lopsided 119-31 victory over the Flying Dutchmen.

DuBois’ victory was a true team effort as 10 different athletes posted individual victories on the day, with just four Beavers — Bradyn Schwabenbauer, Dante Dawson, Seth Braid and Jeremy Fischer — collecting two wins overall on the day.

Schwabenbauer led a dominant day in the jumping events for the Beavers, who swept all three jumping events.

Schwabenbauer won both the long (19-2 1/2) and triple (38-11) jumps and added a third in the high jump. Carson Hanna won the high jump (5-8), while Jared McCoy added a second-place in the long jump to go along with a victory in the 100 dash (12.18) and second-place finish in the 400.

Freshman Jordan Meinert was second in both the long and high jumps, while fellow freshman Christian Sharp placed third in both the long and triple jumps.

“Bradyn Schwabenbauer had another big day for and has ben having a nice season for us,” said Beavers coach Brian Clinger. “The jumpers have all be doing a nice job this season.

“Carson Hanna had a nice day in the high jump, and Jordan Meinert had another consistent day for us with a second in the high jump and a huge jump in the triple jump (38-0 for 2nd place). For his first season, Jordan is doing a fantastic job.”

DuBois also picked up a win in the throwing events, with Rick Lines capturing the javelin with a toss of 126-11.

On the track, DuBois won nine races, including two of the three relays.

On top of McCoy’s win in the 100 dash, the Beavers also got individual wins from Dawson (200 dash, 24.03), Fischer (1,600, 5:03), Braid (800, 2:14), Brenden Saunders (110 hurdles, 18.49), Keaton Chapman (300 hurdles, 45.76) and Kaleb Stevens (3,200 (11:16).

Dawson notched his second win of the day in the 4x100 relay, anchoring the team of Damien Ashenfelter, Ethon Fields and Domenic DiLullo to victory in 45.70.

Fischer and Braid teamed up with Andrew Boyle and Jacob Butterfuss to take home the 4x800 relay in 8:59.60. Fischer added a second in the 3,200, while Saunders (300 hurdles), Stevens (1,600) and Boyle (800) also chipped in seconds to go along with their victories.

Matt Holben cleared 11-0 feet to finish second to St. Marys’ Zach Pistner (11-8) on the pole vault, while teammates Austin Shaffer-Doan (shot put), Sharp (100 dash) and Liam Wilderator (discus) finished second in their respective events.

“Matt Holben hit 11-foot mark today in the pole vault for second place,” said Clinger. “I’m so proud of matt. Pole vault is a difficult event, but Matt has stuck with it and participated in camps over the winter. The height is starting to come with his hard work.”

DuBois also got third-place finishes from Dylan Yohe (shot put, javelin), Chapman (110 hurdles), DiLullo (100, 200), Butterfuss (400), Blizzard (300 hurdles), Alexander Bush (800), Dalton Kruzelak (pole vault), Wes Russell (discus) and Layton Yarus (3,200).

St. Marys got two victories from thrower Tom Bojalad, who took home the shot put (56-1) and discus (161-8). Pistner added his win in the pole vault, while Parker Smith raced to victory in the 400 dash (54.19). The Dutch also won the 4x400 relay, but names were not available for that squad.

Smith added a second in the 200, while Pat Schlimm was second in the javelin.

DuBois closes out the regular season at Clearfield Thursday.
