Evart athletes continue to have success at the collegiate level

EVART — Spring sports practices begin Monday and Evart's track coaches are hoping it will be another successful season.

But the program continues to produce talented athletes. Brooke Belleville, a senior recently signed to run track and cross country at Wisconsin-Stout.

Boys coach Dennis Peacock and his counterpart on the girls team, Todd Scott, have seen many athletes having success with colleges for track and cross country programs in the past year. Scott's son, Santana, a former cross country state champion, is currently at the University of Detroit-Mercy.

"Brooke I think is going to do really well at college," Todd Scott said. "She's predominately a sprinter, but has also proven herself at cross country. She qualified for state in the 100 meter and the 4 by 1. She qualified for state (in cross country) and improved her time."

Logan Hammer is a strong senior at Ferris State University. VanOrder is at Cornerstone University. Alyssa Witbeck is at Davenport University and Jessica Tea-Hui is at Grand Valley State University.
