Frankenmuth rolls over field for second consecutive Division 3 girls state championship

COMSTOCK PARK — No matter how likely it seemed to be, the prospect of winning back-to-back state titles was taboo for the Frankenmuth girls track and field team throughout the course of the season.

So it was understandable that the enthusiasm bubbled over Saturday afternoon, when a chant of “back-to-back” erupted from the Frankenmuth girls after dominating the competition en route to their second straight MHSAA Division 3 state title.

Frankenmuth led the whole way, and finished 40 points ahead of second-place Benzie Central, 89-39, when all was said and done at Comstock Park High School. The title was Frankenmuth's third overall, after the Eagles won the 1991 crown.

Frankenmuth had two individual state champions in Kelsey Ritter and Emily Wee, and won two relays, the 800-meter and 1,600.

Ritter's standout career came to a close with two more state titles, bringing her career total to five. She won the 400-meter title for the third straight year, and the 200 championship for the second straight year. She also placed second in the 100 dash and anchored the 1,600 relay.
