April 18, 2018

With the unpredictable spring weather causing havoc on the track season throughout the region, and meets canceled or rescheduled to different days, the Green River track team split some of their competitors this past week.

A small contingent of the team traveled to the Okie Blanchard meet in Cheyenne Wednesday, which had nice, but windy weather, while others competed in the Roy Peck Invitational in Riverton, enjoying nice weather on Saturday, according to head track coach Dan Hansen.

Leading the girls, scoring points and finishing in the top eight in Cheyenne was Mariyah Brady with the top finish for the Lady Wolves. She took second in the girls 100-meter hurdle in 17.48. Lauren Hoyt placed sixth in the long jump at 16’.05.5.”

Liberty Ferrell took seventh in the 300-meter hurdles in 54.08 and Kaisa Arnell placed eighth in the 1,600-meter run in 6:18.53.

Also in the 1,600, finishing ninth, just out of the team scoring, was Sydney Hosford who dropped her time by 29 seconds.

The boys top finisher of the day was shot putter Nick Boldt who took third place with a throw of 45’.08.25,” while David Martinez led the way in the discus by taking seventh at 121’.06.”

Other top-eight finishers included Marcos Molina in sixth in the 100-meter dash in 11.79, Gavin Heiser, eighth in the 200-meter dash in 25.18 and Kyle Cacho, fifth in the 400-meters in 53.96.

In the distance runs, Marcos Valerio led the way by placing sixth in the 800 meters in 2:09.23 and fifth in the 1,600 meters in 4:54.85. Other leaders in the field events for the boys were Cacho, taking sixth in the long jump at 20’.07.75,” and sophomore Issac Ruiz, who placed 10th in the long jump while upping his season’s best with a fine jump of 19’.05.”

Fourteen teams from Wyoming traveled to Riverton on Saturday to compete in the Roy Peck Invitational at Riverton High School.

Besides the host, competing teams were Lander, Natrona, Green River, Worland, Thermopolis, Rawlins, Cody, Shoshoni, Wyoming Indian, Wind River, Meeteeste, St. Stephens, Dubois and Western Heritage.

Finally, sunshine, little wind and no rain or snow greeted the competitors for a great day for track.

Some of the track veterans competed in both this meet and the Okie Blanchard in Cheyenne earlier in the week, but there was a host of young talent who only competed in Riverton.

Those finishing in the top eight for the girls included Hoyt, who finished fifth in the 100-meter dash in 13.68 and second in the long jump at 15’2” and Brady taking second in the 100-meter hurdles in 16.68.

For the boys, those scoring team points included Cacho, who finished fourth in the 200-meter dash in 23.75 and first in the long jump at 19’11.”

Also finishing in the top eight were Miles Moffatt, finishing fourth in the 800-meter run in 2:12.53 and seventh in the 1,600 meters in 5:07.94, and Nick Boldt, who took fourth in the shot put at 42”10.50” and first in the discus with a season best of 138’.06.”
