HOLLY, Michigan – For the first time in its nine-year history, the Holly High School Equestrian Team is saddling up to ride into regional competition. The seven girls on the team, including five seniors who have been riding together since middle school, will be at the Shiawassee County Fairgrounds this weekend, said Vicki Dellinger, parent and secretary for District 1.

“We’ve been working four years for this,” senior Carolynn Que said.

With different members of the team specializing in different classes at the shows, Que is the only one whose horse competes in jumping, while senior Erin Miyamotl is great at trail riding. A weekend ago, senior Jessalyn Jarrell received a standing ovation from the judge when she took first in reining. Junior Margaret Dellinger competes in many events, receiving the high point award for Division B, and overall out of 179 riders. It was the first year for high point awards.

FENTON, Michigan - On a beautiful late Spring evening, the Holly Bronchos’ girls’ track team exacted some minor revenge by edging the Brandon Blackhawks in Fenton, Wednesday night by a slim margin 182.33 to 174.33. Keyed by a late effort in the 3200 meter run, the Bronchos were able to pull ahead and hold on in this second to last event of the evening. The Blackhawks finished the regular season at 8-0, with Holly’s only loss coming to Brandon while ending at 7-1.

On the boys’ side, the Linden Eagles used the dominance of sophomore star Ted Parcher to take the league title, holding off both Swartz Creek and Flint Kearsley for the win. The Eagles finished at 132 points. Creek and Kearsley had 115 and 111.5 points respectively. Holly was fourth at 96.5 points and Brandon finished sixth with 46 points.

FLINT TOWNSHIP, Michigan - The Holly girls’ track team ended the Flint Metro League meet season on a high note Wednesday at Kearsley. The Lady Bronchos swept the Fenton Tigers and the host Hornets, dominating Fenton 110-27 and Kearsley114-23.

The Holly boys easily topped Fenton but lost yet another close one, losing to Kearsley by a margin of 71-65. The Bronchos beat Fenton 90-47.

Led by a school record performance from senior Rachel Domagalski, the Bronchos made quick work of both squads. Domagalski topped the bar at 10-feet six-inches in the pole vault, improving on a school record she earned earlier this year. She bested teammate Avery Johnston and Fenton’s Tori Chapin by a full 18-inches.

HOLLY, Michigan - The Holly girls’ track team resoundingly defeated their Clio and Swartz Creek counterparts in Holly Wednesday night. The Bronchos topped Clio by a margin of 131 to 6, and Swartz Creek by a score of 109-½ to 27-½.

The boys, however, dominated Clio but fell to another talented team in losing to the Swartz Creek Dragons, 72-65.  They easily beat the Mustangs, 99-38.

Holly’s Sarah Delwalsche and Elizabeth Hawley both had big nights in field events, finishing first and second in both the shot put and discus. Dewalsche had a personal best of 111-feet even in the discus.

After bouncing back from a tough loss to Brandon last week, Dewalsche praised the squad. “Our girls try really hard – we have a really good group of girls this year” she said. “We have a lot of young talent, and it kind of leaves us seniors with a good heart knowing that (Holly) will still be good when we are gone.”

SWARTZ CREEK, Michigan - Coming in to this game, the Holly Bronchos knew they would have their hands full with 19-2, state-ranked Clarkston. On Wednesday night in Swartz Creek, Holly simply didn’t have enough hands available to deal with a talented and deep Clarkston squad and were bombed by a score of 73-19.

As happened in last year’s finale when the Bronchos fell behind 14-2 after the first quarter and as in 2010 when they were down 12-0 at the start to Carman Ainsworth in the district final, Holly put itself in a big hole with another very slow start.

The Wolves used a 9-0 run, keyed by a quick three-pointer from senior star Nick Tatu in the first seconds of the game, and cruised to a 19-2 lead at the end of the first quarter.
