Nine young guys and four young ladies are off to Great Falls this weekend to compete in the State Meet.
It was a good year for the Raiders who started the season with 15 and gained two along the way who saw how much fun the others were having running, jumping and tossing things that they just couldn’t stay away.
Bethany Lacock continued her athletic dominance as she qualified in a mind-boggling seven events and now has to decide which five she wants to enter. Bethany broke the divisional pole vault record with a vault of 9-07 just two inches short of Sacarra Molina’s school record.
Delaney Beil has injuries that kept her from qualifying. She has a broken bone in her foot and has some muscle separation in her shin.
Courtney Capdeville qualified in the pole vault as did Lacock and Payton Chopper.
Josi Ellger, our young lady from Germany qualified in the long jump and is especially excited that her dad has come to Montana to watch his daughter compete. Good luck Josi.
For the boys, Pablo Pascual in the 100 and one leg of the 4x100 relay. Lukas Johnson qualified in the discus. Brett Johnson will run a leg of the 4x100 and maybe the 3,200. Wyatt Pattison tossed the spear far enough to make it to state. Hannes Seifert and Dallas Capdeville will run legs in the 4x100.
Anthony Sones, Cache Younkin, Valentin Robert and one other are in the second Hinsdale 4x100.
You’ll have to forgive my briefness. I’ve been on (and under) the tractor and air drill for two weeks and haven’t been too well informed on the situation but I’m going to Great Falls to watch the state action and will have a full report in next week’s Courier, uncut and in it’s entirety I hope.
That’s it for now folks. Thanks for listening.
