NTL TRACK & FIELD: TROY BOYS HISTORIC SEASON IN 2024 (2024-06-04)

Northern Tier Sports Report
Troy track and field had a season for the ages, with the boys claiming their first NTL title since 1981, and, as a group, they sent three individuals and one relay to states.

The boys had a convincing win at leagues, then saw Avery Sens (shot put) and Ben Warburton (long jump) win district titles. Their 4x100 relay also made states. Sens would make the state podium in the shot put, taking seventh.


“The men’s team this year was one for Troy’s history books,” said coach Matt Geer. “From start to finish, they set out with high goals and met almost all of them. Having finished second the two previous years in the NTL, they came into the season determined to win it all. Finally winning the NTL after 43 years was very special to the guys and something they will remember for a long time. It was led by seniors Jake Hinman and Colin Loveland, but it was a true team effort.”


The Troy boys also went undefeated in NTL dual meet action.


“Juniors Ben Warburton and Avery Sens winning their events at districts was fun to watch and to take them and the 4x100 team to states was icing on the cake of an already great season,” Geer said. “I knew winning the District meet as a team was a stretch. A lot of perfection and luck would have been needed to win it, but just being able to see the team in a position to score a lot of points at the district meet was very exciting and a testament to the depth of the team this year.”


On the girls’ side Alyssa Parks earned a state berth in the 300 hurdles to go with a big medal haul the final two weeks of the season.


“I thought the women’s team performed well,” Geer said. “We didn’t finish as high in the NTL Championships as we had hoped, but our team was very young and that is exciting for the future. Alyssa Parks, Kylee Roy and Maddy Seeley led the team all year in points and all three will be returning next year along with a lot of now experienced freshman and sophomores. Having Alyssa and Kylee both medal at districts was very exciting, Alyssa finally make it to the state meet in the 300 hurdles capped a great year for her. I can’t wait to see what she and the whole team can do next year.”


Sens, Warburton, Parks, and plenty of relays on both sides return some key athletes for next season, as they have crowns to defend.
