By Jeff Steers JTV Sports Perhaps aptly named, Lexus Bargesser of Grass Lake High School was in pursuit of perfection on Saturday at the Michigan High School Athletic Association Division 3 track and field championships at Jenison High School. The freshman stole the show winning the 100 and 200-meter dash events on a stormy Saturday near Grand Rapids. The state meet was delayed at least three times for thunder and lightning in the area. Bargesser was a bolt of lightning in winning the 100 in 12.56 seconds – a personal best – and the 200 with a time of 25.43 – also her best time ever. She was one of a number of Jackson County athletes who earned medals and all-state honors finishing in the top eight in his/her events. Bargesser was seeded third heading into the 100 final, but got out of blocks quickly and held off fellow Cascades Conference runner Jayden Humphrey of Manchester at the end. “Jayden and I have gone back and…

The Cardinals will move on to play the regional round at home beginning Monday at 5:30 p.m. against Springport. Grass Lake goes home with a 21-2 record and a Cascades Conference championship. Both of their losses were to Michigan Center. The Cardinals defeated Grass Lake early in the season and the Warriors returned the favor with a 3-point win later in the year. “We learned from the run last year to play every possession like it was your last,” MCHS Coach Joe Lusk said. “Because it could be.” Both teams feature a number of underclassmen and this could be the beginning of two or three years of great duels.
