PHS track strong in Worland

Posted

With seven first-place finishes and a slew of second and thirds, the Powell High School boys and girls track teams continue to improve, showing up strong at Thursday’s D & D Invitational in Worland.

The Panthers finished first in a field that included Cody, Worland, Ten Sleep and Riverside (Basin), scoring 230 points; Cody was second with 211. On the girls side, Cody took the top spot with 237 points, while Powell followed with 200.

“We were actually pretty happy about the weather down there,” said Powell head coach Scott Smith, whose team was forced to cancel last weekend’s home meet due to inclement weather. “The forecast [in Worland] was for winds of 20 to 40 mph, and I don’t think the wind ever got above 5 mph. It was still chilly, but you can’t really do anything about that. We had a lot of good performances down there. The kids have been running really, really well.”

For the girls, Sabrina Shoopman once again dominated the girls 100 meter hurdles, finishing first with a time of 16.82 and qualifying for state. Teammate Caitlyn Miner finished second at 17.07.

“Sabrina [Shoopman] keeps improving her time in both hurdles,” Smith said. “Caitlyn Miner had a good day as well, she improved in hurdles and run well in the relay.”

Freshman Madelyn Horton was the lone finisher in the 3200 meters with a time of 15.19:95. Aubrie Stenerson rounded out the girls’ top finishers, winning the long jump with a leap of 15 feet, 2.5 inches.

On the boys’ side, Jay Cox finished first in the 400 meters with a time of 53.30, while Colby Warner was first in the high jump at 5 feet, 10 inches. Dalton Woodward continues to impress in the triple jump, winning the event with a leap of 40 feet, 6.5 inches. Teammate Dylan Preator was second at 39 feet, 11 inches. The boys 4x100 meter relay team of Jon Morrow, Jacob Harrison, Landon Lengfelder and AJ Lewis also finished first.

Lady Panthers

Scoring points for the Lady Panthers in the 100 meters were Aubrie Stenerson in seventh place with a time of 14.17, while Gracen Curtis finished eighth with a time of 14.18.

Emma Karhu finished second in the 200 meters with a time of 28.17, followed by Brea Terry in fifth at 28.90.

JuliaKay O’Neill and Sidney O’Brien finished second and third, respectively, in the 800 meters, while Hailee Paul finished seventh in the 1600, followed closely by Jenna Merritt in eighth.

“Sidney O’Brien is one of the runners who did a really nice job for us. She’s been doing a number of different events and doing well,” Smith said.

O’Neill’s time of 2:27.15 in the 800 qualified her for state.

In the field events, Hailee Hyde finished third in the high jump with a leap of 4 feet, 5 inches, while Gabri Lundberg was sixth at 4 feet, 1 inch. Jaz Haney and McKenna Hanson were third and fourth in the triple jump, while Maddy Hanks, Caitlyn Miner and Emma Karhu finished third, fourth and fifth in the pole vault.

Lady Panther Rachel Bonander continues to improve in the throwing events with each meet, finishing fourth in the shot put with a toss of 32 feet, 5.75 inches and second in the discus with a throw of 104 feet, 11 inches.

Panthers

In the 100 meters, Panther Kaelan Groves sprinted to a third place finish, with a time of 11.80. Brody Karhu and Jacob Harrison finished second and third, consecutively in the 200 meters, while Jayden Yates finished fourth in the 800 meters with a time of 2:15.97.

“We were running Brody Karhu in the 200 just to get some sprint training, and he qualified for state,” Smith said. “He also bettered his pole vaulting ... He also ran good legs on the relays. He had a really good day.”

In the longer distances, Alan Merritt had a pair of second-place finishes in the 1600 and 3200 meter events. Kacey Creed finished second in the 110 meter hurdles with a time of 18.42, while the 4x400 relay team of Jon Morrow, Dylan Cordes, Kaelan Groves and Brody Karhu finished second with a time of 3:50.19. The 4x800 relay team of Merritt, Tyler Pfeifer, Joey Hernandez and Cox also finished second.

In the field events, Brody Karhu finished third in the pole vault, clearing a height of 13 feet, 6 inches. Kaelan Groves finished fifth in the event with a height of 12 feet, 6 inches and qualified for state.

Dylan Preator and AJ Lewis finished third and fourth, consecutively, in the long jump.

In the throwing events, Ryan Good finished second in the shot put with a toss of 45 feet, to go along with a seventh-place finish in the discus. Coach Smith said Good continues to improve every week.

“Ryan Good had a season best by over 10 feet in the shot put,” Smith said. “It was a nice breakout performance by him.”

Cayden Lynn also had a good meet, finishing second in the discus with a throw of 124 feet, 1 inch, and fourth in the shot put with a toss of 40 feet, 5.5 inches.

“Our throwers are so young, and it’s such technical events, that they’re going to keep getting better and better as their technique improves,” Smith said. “There are a lot of kids who don’t have the full form yet, just using power throws. That’s the beauty of it — as they learn the forms, they continue to improve.”

PHS competed at Rocky Mountain High School on Saturday; results from that competition will appear in Thursday’s Tribune.
