Hall Stadium on Tuesday as the Emeralds played host to Newberry and Bay de Noc.

Mother Nature wasn’t very kind at home for the Emeralds this season as they only had two home meets and both were held under not so favorable conditions. Wind and rain are two elements track and fielders would rather not experience.

As they say, the show must go on and the Emerald boys did just that. The Emeralds took 10 first place finishes Tuesday ending the day with 78 points. Newberry finished second with 55 and Big Bay de Noc ended the meet with 22.

First place finish: 3,200-meter relay, 9:34; Kenner Broullire, 100-meter dash, 11.82; 800-meter relay, 1:41.62; 400-meter relay, 48.55; Ryan Ramey, 400-meter dash, 54.89; Broullire, 300-meter hurdles, 42.21; Ramey, 800-meter run, 2:19.16; 1,600-meter relay, 3:54.29; pole vault, Zach Lambert, 9-0; shot put, Broullire; 34-1
