The Emerald junior crossed the finish line at the 40.12 mark, breaking his own junior school record – set just a week ago – and qualifying for the upcoming U.P. Finals. Broullire also qualified for the finals with a third place finish in long jump.

The Emeralds 1,600- and 3,200-meter relay teams will also make the trip to the finals. Broullire, along with Ryan Ramey, John Rahn and Bryson Lawrence came in second in the 1,600 with a time of 3.36.78. Ramey, Lawrence, Rahn and Robert Ayotte made the cut in the 3,200-meter relay with a combined time of 8.40.15.

Lawrence also took fourth place in the 800-meter run with his time of 2.08.17.

Tanner Yurk and Adam Nagy placed in field events. Nagy took first place in pole vault, crossing the bar at 12-6. Yurk took fourth in high jump.

“Kenner had a great day once again,” coach Mary Lou Lund said. “Overall, they did a great job. As a team they have nothing to regret, they performed at a very high level, setting personal bests in several events. I am very proud of what they have done this season.”

The Emeralds will travel to Negaunee to compete for the Mid- Peninsula Conference title today.

Gladstone won the meet with a team score 62.5. Marquette had 46.5, Menominee 31, Manistique 20, Escanaba 14 and Sault Ste. Marie 13.
