DuBOIS — The DuBois boys track and field team celebrated Senior Night in a big way with a sweep over Brookville and Bellefonte.

The Beavers beat Brookville, 94-56, while getting past Bellefonte, 88-62.

“On Senior Night, this was a total team effort for us,” said DuBois coach Brian Clinger. “We really worked together today to send our seniors off for their last home track meet.”

The Beavers earned wins in seven of the 18 events on the day, including a pair of relays and two wins from Bradyn Schwabenbauer.

Schwabenbauer took home wins in the long jump and triple jump. His distance in the long jump was 19-0 1/2, while his leap in the triple jump was 38-11 3/4, which pleased Clinger.

Jacob Butterfuss, Seth Braid, Alexander Bush and Jeremy Fischer started the meet with a first place in the 4x800 relay with a time of 9:08.6.

Damien Ashenfelter, Ethon Fields, Domenic DiLullo and Dante Dawson took the 4x100 relay in 46.1 seconds.

Jeremy Fischer won the 1600 run with a time of 5:02.1, while Keaton Chapman (300 hurdles, 45.5) and Kaleb Stevens (3200 run, 11:10.9) rounded out wins for DuBois.

The distance runners proved to be a big factor for the Beavers, according to Clinger.

“On the track, our distance runners really came through today,” he said. “The second and third place finishes add up for our victories today.”

Brookville also got five wins on the day, with sprinter Ryan Thrush taking two of them.

Thrush took the 100 dash (11.3 seconds) and 200 dash (23.0 seconds) to lead the way.

The Raiders also got first place in three field events as Seth Ray (high jump, 5-10), Braden MacBeth (javelin, 149-2) and Cole Aaron (pole vault, 10-6) also picked up individual victories.

DuBois picked up six second-place finishes as Dante Dawson (110 hurdles), Seth Braid (800 run), Jeremy Fischer (3200 run), Carson Hanna (high jump), Rick Lines (javelin) and Randy Holben (pole vault) were all runners-up.

The Beavers also picked up five more third place finishes from Brenden Saunders (110 hurdles), Kaleb Stevens (1600 run), Jeremy Fischer (300 hurdles), Dawson (long jump) and Austin Shaffer-Doan (shot put).

For Brookville, five athletes picked up second place finishes, with Bryan Dworek getting two of them. Dworek was runner-up in the 200 dash and long jump, while Addison Singleton (110 hurdles), Kirkland Smith (triple jump) and Jake Walk (shot put) were also second place in their respective events.

Also for the Raiders, John Matheny had a couple third places in the 200 dash and 400 run, while Dworek was third in the 100 dash.

Zak Gilbert (3200 run) and Zach Wildeson (pole vault) rounded out third place finishes for Brookville.

DuBois is back in action on Friday at the West Central Coaches Meet at Mansion Park in Altoona. Brookville goes to the Oil City Invite on Saturday.
