Celina Lopez makes a leap in the triple jump at Tuesday’s Berlin Invitational.

   The Ripon High School track and field teams may have finished simply middle of the pack Tuesday at the Berlin Invite, but that wasn’t due to a lack of strong individual performances.

   Several Tiger athletes recorded impressive afternoons, bringing home multiple place-finishes for Ripon High School.

   “I think we did very well,” Ripon head coach Chris Gatzke said. “Our relay teams were solid.”

   The boys, who collectively took fourth out of nine teams with 104 points, were led by Carter Hahn.

   “Carter Hahn had a pretty decent meet,” Gatzke said, understatedly.

   All told, Hahn took first in the 400-meter dash with a time of 53.63 seconds. He also took second in the 100 with a time of 11.71, and helped the 1,600 relay to a third-place finish. Joining him on that relay squad were Max Beuthin, Limi Ahmedi and Remington Mueller.

   “Max had a pretty decent day [as well],” Gatzke said. “He was part of the [3,200] relay team that started us off with a win.”

   That team — which also featured Daniel Mader, James Stanfield and Ryan Brewer — finished in 9:17.70.
