Batavia-Geneva track dual on temporary hold

Inclement weather postponed the boys-girls track dual between host Batavia and Geneva from Tuesday to Wednesday.

It could not delay athletes' excitement.

"It's against Geneva," said Batavia junior Jorden Berendt, a boys sprint/distance athlete, "so it would be a good meet to win."

The competition – whose victor receives a custom wood trophy created by Geneva boys coach Gale Gross – features combined boys and girls scoring.

For the girls, the dual comes two days before Geneva hosts the girls Kane County Meet Friday, but that's of no concern to the Bulldogs.

"I like this meet before county, because it kind of helps you get in the mode of competition, and it's nice to have competition there," Batavia junior girls jumper/sprinter Jessica Hartmann said.
