Middle school track and field teams wrap up 2014 season

The Cubs boys and girls traveled to Lovell for the conference track meet on May 10  and then to Riverton on May 13 for the Best of the Best meet.

Lander originally was scheduled to host the Best of the Best, but weather moved the meet to Riverton.

Girls’ coach Dale Ann Meeker said the Cubs set many personal bests at conference, including JuliaKay O’Neill’s time of 59.62 in the 400-meter dash, which broke her own school record of 61.4.

O’Neill bested herself again in Riverton, this time in the 800-meter run. The eighth-grader eclipsed her previous time of 2:27.33 with a time of 2:24.52.

Kodi Stringer set a new school record in the shot put with her throw of 29 feet, 2 inches.

The eighth-grade girls 4x200-meter relay team of McKenna Hanson, Maddy Hanks, Kooper Stringer and O’Neill won in Riverton with a time of 1:58.65. The 4x400-meter relay team of Dagne Stratton, Hanks, Kooper Stringer and O’Neill won in 4:35.97 in Lovell.

The eighth-grade boys’ 4x200-meter relay team of Brooks Asher, Antonio Garza, A.J. Lewis and Aaron Smith won at conference with a time of 1:46.68.

The seventh-grade girls won the 4x400-meter relay in Lovell with a time of 4:56.25. Mollie Kissner, Rylee Ramsey, Jasmyne Lensegrav and Caitlyn Miner each ran a leg.
