Track: Improving by leaps and bounds

 

April 4, 2019



On Friday, March 22, the Wolves Track and Field team competed at the Natrona Invite in Casper. The Wolves had a lot of competition to contend with and showed up to battle with the best.

Hailey and Jordan Jones pre-qualified for State competition in the 1600 Meter Run with the times of 5:39.23 and 5:43.87 respectively. Hailey earned a fourth place finish and Jordan took a sixth place finish in a field of forty plus runners.

The team of Kaylee Terry, Grace Breaux, Jordan Jones and Hailey Jones put on a phenomenal show in the 1600 Meter Sprint Medley and took second place. They finished less than one second behind first place. This will be a race to watch at the state tournament because this medley team pre-qualified for state competition with this show of strength.

On Saturday, March 30, the Wolves went to Buffalo, WY for the Jerry Campbell Invite. At this track meet with a view, Jordan Jones pre-qualified for state competition in the 3200 Meter Run with a time of 12:39.99. Hailey Jones pre-qualified in the 800 Meter Run with a time of 2:25.36 and re-qualified for the 1600 Meter Run with a time of 5:32.51. Grayson Osmon pre-qualified for state competition in the 100 Meter Dash with a time of 11.64 and he pre-qualified in the 200 Meter Dash with a time of 23.44.

There was an impressive show of how hard work pays off when you are willing to put in the time and effort with several athletes improving upon personal records. Amasa Gerstner has shaved 40 seconds off of her mile time, Char Cranston cut 8/10 of a second off of her 100m hurdle race, Katie Cuthrell has improved in all three of her events and she improved on the Shot Put by nearly two and a half feet!

Kaylee Terry is making improvements in the 400 Meter Dash as is Grace Breaux in the 200 Meter Dash. Mandi Otto is making strides in the 200 Meter Dash as she improves her time and Marla Sproul leaped almost a full foot further in the Long Jump.

April Miller has improved her time in the in the 200 Meter Dash by 2/10 of a second. Hailey Jones has improved her time by three seconds in the 800 Meter Run while Grayson Osmon has improved his 200 Meter Dash time by almost 1 1/2 seconds and he is inching his way toward state competition.

To many people these numbers don’t mean much, but to a runner every one hundredth of a second matters. All said we, the coaches, are very proud of the accomplishments that this awesome team has enjoyed and we are looking forward to seeing their faces every time they, yet again, earn a new personal record.
