Jeff Deininger knew Tuesday’s Big Eight Conference track and field opener was coming down to the wire.

Turns out, the first dual meet of the outdoor season came down to the very last race for the Janesville Craig boys.

Senior Aaron Leverson anchored the winning 4x400-meter relay that sealed a 71-70 victory over visiting Sun Prairie.

“Aaron was just dynamic tonight,” said Deininger, Craig’s head coach. “We were trailing in that race and came back and won it.

“It was really fun getting back into competition. It was as good of a first night as we could have hoped.”

Leverson also won the 400 meters for Craig. The Cougars swept the 100-meter dash, behind a victory from sophomore Grant Mullen. Mullen was also part of the Cougars’ two sprint-relay victories. Logan Kahl won the triple jump and was also part of the 400-meter relay team.

Sun Prairie won the girls meet 90-42.

Cougars freshman Rylee Coleman won the 400 and was part of Craig’s winning 4x400-meter relay team that won. Sophomore Clare Hulick won the 800 meters and was also part of that relay.

“That 4x4 relay team ran a really good time,” Craig girls coach Brad Troeger said. “We had some good performances. Tonight was a little bit about kicking the rust offand seeing what we have.”
