Cole White competes in the 100 meters during previous action at the regional track meet in Rock Springs two weeks ago.

While neither the Wolves nor the Rock Springs Tigers were able to crown any state champions this State meet, there were some good performances from the locals.

Leading the way for the Lady Wolves, as she has done all season, was junior Andri Dewey, who took second place in both the 100 and 200-meter dashes.

Dewey ran the 100 in 12.63 and the 200 in 25.84, both times close to her season bests. Also taking second place was sophomore Erika Wilson in the high jump, who jumped 5'2."

The only other Lady Wolf to score points finishing in the top eight was long jumper, Lauren Hoyt who jumped 15'11.50."

Also the girls, 4x100 relay team made up of freshman Mariah Brady, Wilson, Hoyt and Dewey, took eighth place. All of the Lady Wolves that scored points are underclassman and have one more year of eligibility.

For the boys, senior Braden Reichl led the way finishing three grueling distance races. He took third in the 800 meters with his best time of the season in 1:58.07. He also finished seventh in the 1,600 meters in 4:29.68 and took third in the 3,200 meters in 9:46.49. Other individual top-eight finishers for the boys included junior Kyle Cacho taking sixth in the long jump at 20'05.25, and senior Hunter Spartz taking eighth in the discus and achieving his season best in the shot put with a throw of 49'6.50."

Also scoring points for the boys were Cody Childress, Cole White, Cacho and Drew Wilson in the 4x100-meter relay taking eighth and Eric Cligenpeel, Zach Orr, Miles Moffat and Wilson taking seventh in the 4x800-meter relay.

In addition to those who finished in the top eight scoring points, several competitors finished in the top 10, including Wilson taking ninth in the 100-meter hurdles and the youngest relay team in the field with sophomore Kaisa Arnell, freshman Sydney Hosford, sophomore Ashley Jensen and freshman Kezley Moore taking ninth in the 4x800-meter relay.

Those in the top 10 for the boys included junior Chance Hofer taking ninth in the long jump at 19'.2.50" and Junior Nick Boldt taking 10th in the shot put with his seasons best of 43'7."

Also competing well for the Wolves and gaining invaluable experience were freshman Kezley Moore in the 400 and 800 meters, sophomores Kaisa Arnell in the 3,200 meters, sophomore hurdler Jimena Campos in the 100 and 300-meter hurdles and junior Natasha Young in the shot put.

On the boys side, junior Chance Hofer gained experience in the 110-meter hurdles as did freshman Grant Huber who improved his times in almost every race of the year both of whom also have eligibility remaining.

All in all, coach Dan Hansen was pleased with his young teams performance and wishes his seniors well as all that went to State have the potential to compete at the next level and the future looks bright given the number of young performers who, with hard work in the off season, provide a promising future for the Green River track program.
