Regional Champs: Sparta Boys and Girls – (Dennis Stouten/Gosparta.com)

What a season it has been for the Sparta Spartans, and it’s not over yet. Both the Sparta boys and girls track and field teams competed at the MHSAA Regional meet at Coopersville High School, and both teams ended the day as regional champions. Although both teams came in on a high from conference championships, neither had an easy time securing the regional title. The Sparta girls had an easier time securing the meet by outscoring second place Forest Hills Eastern 120-100.33. On the boys side the meet came down to the final event; the Spartans third place finish in the 1600 meter relay scored just enough to break defending champion Whitehall’s heart, 83-81. The girls earned their second regional title in three years, whereas the boys won their first regional title since 1986 – this is the first time in school history that both the boys and girls teams have held the regional title in the same year.
