The Ord High School track teams had a great district meet this past Thursday at the C-9
District Meet. With Burwell as the host for the meet, the Chants were able to bring home a
championship plaque in the girls division and a runner-up plaque in the boys. "We really had a
good meet all the way around", Coach Derry Trampe said. "Our girls were a dominating team
and our boys had their best showing of the season. I am very proud of the way our kids
performed. The hard work they put in this season really paid off for them in the end." The boys
scored 126 points to claim the runner up spot in the 8-team field. Ainsworth won the meet with
161 points. Burwell was a distant third with 60 points. Rounding out the team scoring were:

The girls won 10 events and scored in all 17 events on their way to scoring 168 points and
claiming the team championship. Clearwater/Orchard was a distant second with 105 points. "I
don't ever remember our team scoring in all events at a meet," Coach Trampe stated. "That is
what probably impressed me the most with our girls. It was really a complete team effort."

Colton Zulkoski fired a season-low one over par 73 and propelled the Chants to another championship at the Fullerton Invitational. The Chants shot a 315 to best Humphrey St. Francis by 7. Battle Creek shot a 325 for third.
Coach Mike Bechtold said the Chants had to step it up to get past the field on a perfect day.
“This meet included 5 or more teams that will head to state, so it was no cake walk,” Bechtold said, “It took a great effort from Zulk and the same consistency from everyone else to get this done.”
Ord’s team score was one of the top ten all time at the meet and Zulkoski’s score put him in the top ten all time as well.
“We weren’t too far from the record performance at this meet, a score of 302, which coincidentally is also held by the Ord team of 2006.”
Zulkoski’s effort was good enough for the second place medal at the meet. Trevor Kosch of St. Francis set the meet record with a 68.
“Colton has gotten into his groove and at just the right time.”
Tanner Bundy shot a season-low 77 to take 4th. Brady Rogers shot 82 for 14th. Ethan John shot 83 for 15th and Cy Trofholz shot 88 for the Chants.
“Bundy has really been improving throughout the year and is now finding out just how good he can be,” Bechtold said, “It seems to be coming together for him.”
Bechtold said the team continued a yearlong theme at the meet.
“We haven’t had all five guys play really well on the same day yet this year,” Bechtold said, “When you can do that and still win, it’s great, but I believe we need to put it all together if we want to finish the year the way we think we can.”
The Chants have only District golf and State remaining should they qualify.

Zoe Ritz, Ali Smith, and Andrea Carson to win the 4 X 800 relay in a new Lou-Platte conference
meet record time of 9:53.81. "Our girls had a very good day on the track as well as in the field",
Coach Derry Trampe stated. "The 3200 relay not only set a meet record, they also established
the top time in Class C so far this season. They are really running well right now and Morgan
just continues to get stronger and stronger in the vault. This is a great confidence builder
heading into the district meet." In the team race the Chanticleer girls finished 2 nd with 89 points
which was just 5 points behind Adams Central (94). "Our girls had a good day and really scored
more than I thought we would but Adams Central had a little better day and put together some
pretty good relays at the end of the meet", Trampe said. Rounding out the team scores were:
Wood River (69), Kearney Catholic (67), Centura (53), Arcadia-Loup City (50), St. Paul (44),
Ravenna (25), Doniphan-Trumbull (19), and Gibbon (17).
great day based on the entries heading into the meet", Trampe said. "Looking at the entries it
looked like we should get 6 th or 7 th in the meet but our boys came through with some quality
performances to finish in a close race for the third place spot. I am really proud of the way they
competed on the day." Adams Central ran away with the team title scoring 179 points while
