BV's Hoffert wins 3 TRAC titles
MANLIUS — Bureau Valley's Logan Hoffert enjoyed some home cooking Friday, winning three events in the Three Rivers Conference boys track and field championships at Storm Stadium.
The Storm senior standout added his third consecutive conference title in the 300 hurdles to his victories in the triple jump and 4x400 relay.
In the 300 hurdles, Hoffert beat Fulton's Bryce Holesinger by four-tenths of a second with a time of 41.31, spurred on by defending his title and a poor first jump in the triple.
"I was angry going in, and I put that bad jump into the race," Hoffert said. "I started slower than usual, but I sped up halfway through the curve and caught Bryce. I've won this race since my sophomore year, and it means a lot when it comes against such good competition."
Holesinger had earlier won the 110 hurdles (16.14), battling through a left hip flexor that flared up in the 300s.
"I'm going to get Hoffert before he leaves," Holesinger said with a smile. "I ran the 110s really clean, and my hip didn't bother me at all. Then, when I felt Hoffert on my hip around the curve in the 300s, I tried to pour it on and it balled up on me. It's tough that my hip hasn't hurt all year, and now, right before conference and sectionals, it's got to be like that, but I just have to push through it the best I can."
