The boys track and field team took fourth place at the Davison Twilight Invitational behind a strong performance by freshman Braylon Silvas.

Silvas continued his dominant season with a personal record in the 300-meter hurdles, taking first in 43.30.  In addition, Silvas’ 17.14 finish in the 110 high hurdles was good enough for second place.

In the long jump, Silvas leaped 19-04 for second place.

St. Johns won the medium-sized division, scoring 187 points and squeaking past runner-up Linden with 184.

The Hornets scored 166 points, finishing behind third-place Powers Catholic with 178.

Senior Carlos Macedo placed second in the 100 dash with a time of 11.99 seconds.

The 1600 relay team of senior Taveon Harris, Silvas, Braziel, and Griffin also finished second. The relays time was 3:43.40.

In the 400 dash, senior Tre’Ron Griffin sprinted for a fourth-place in a 55.16 finish.

Junior Dylan Buschur placed fourth in the shot put, putting 40 feet, 10 inches.

Sophomore Raydoffa Braziel set a personal record in the 800 run, taking fifth in 2:06.43.  He also anchored the 3200-relay team of junior Josh Bischoff, Griffin, and senior Alex Willers, that finished third with an 8:48.05 finish.

In addition, Braziel, who was dominant in his relays and the 800 run, was excited for his prospects at qualifying for the state final after setting his personal record.

“It feels good because all of my hard work is paying off,” Braziel said. “Just knowing that I have a chance at going to states this year is really comforting, to know that I’m getting better than last year.”

Gavin Etson, senior, took sixth in the 110 high hurdles with a time of 18.11.

Despite some issues in the 800 relay, Braziel feels the team did well.

“We ended up catching up, but everyone makes mistakes,” Braziel said. “You just gotta keep working at it and just having teamwork is important to me.”

The Hornets will compete in an MHSAA regional in Clio. The regional is Friday, May 18.
