Temps cool, but action hot at Twilight Meet

Temps cool, but action hot at Twilight Meet

{{featured_button_text}}

With temperatures dipping into the low 40s, the athletes were shivering last Friday during the Chadron High School Twilight Meet at Cardinal Field, but an array of hotly-contested events helped ward off the chill factor

The host Cardinals won both team titles, but each of the other six schools also had some highlights that made it an interesting meet. The winner of a couple of the field events was decided by less than an inch and the outcome of several of the races was determined by less than a stride.

Among the Cardinals who stood out was junior Chayton Bynes, who won all three jumps and also ran on the winning 4x100 relay team. He cleared 6-feet in the high jump for the first time and won the triple jump by nearly three feet.

Sophomore Rhett Cullers swept the hurdles for the Cardinals with teammate Garrett Reece the runner-up in both races. Carter Ryan was the 800 winner.

Chadron boys also set the pace in the throws. Juniors Jarek Anderson and Cody Hall finished one-two in the shot put, just as they did at the Mitchell Meet on April 8, and sophomore Henry Kennell, who wasn’t in the varsity lineup previously, won the discus, perhaps surprising even himself and also bolstering his confidence.

In the girls’ action, Tatum Bailey easily won the high jump, was just a quarter of an inch shy of tying for first in the triple jump and also showed plenty of promise while winning a new event for her--the 100-meter high hurdles. She also anchored the winning 4x100 relay. Coach Blakelee Hoffman indicated it probably won’t be the last time Bailey will run the highs.

Two CHS cross country standouts last fall continued to find success in shorter races this spring. Makinley Fuller won the 300 hurdles and Grace Pyle captured the 800.

Here are some highlights for the other schools:

--Crawford senior Jillian Brennan, who as a freshman in 2018, won both the 1600 and 3200 at the Chadron Twilight Meet, slammed the 200 and 400 this year. She also helped Crawford win both the 4x400 and 4x800 relays. The Orange and Black also got firsts from junior Dalli Anders in the 100 and freshman Halee Wasserburger in the 3200.

--In one of the most exciting races, Sioux County freshman Britney Klein used a strong finish to nip another rookie, Tyrah American Horse of Gordon-Rushville, for top honors in the 1600. Klein also challenged Wasserburger for the 3200 title.

--Hay Springs sophomore Wes Jacobs used strong finishes to win both boys’ distance races by the narrowest of margins. He nipped Chadron’s Gavin Sloan by 3 hundreths of a second in the 3200 early in the competition and a couple hours later edged Gordon-Rushville’s Greg Johns by 8 hundreths in the 1600.

--Cody-Kilgore senior Elle Ravenscroft joined Bailey, Brennan and Jacobs as a double winner by taking top honors in the shot put and triple jump, an unusual combination. Another Cowgirl, Fayth From, won the long jump, shading Chadron’s Jayrah Ngio by a half inch.

--The Gordon-Rushville boys claimed the first four places in the 400 meters. Jace Freeseman led the way while Elijah Jackson, PJ Lynch and Mac Ballard weren’t far behind. As anticipated, they also won the day’s final event, the 4x400 relay. But a Chadron foursome made up of Cullers, Michael Sorenson, Seth Gaswick and Reece finished less than a half second behind.

--Jackson won the 100 dash and also was second in the triple jump. Freeseman was the runner-up in the 800.

--Another Gordon-Rushville highlight was posted by freshman McKinley Grover, who sailed the discus 116-5 while no one else hit 100 feet. Generally, athletes who excel in the throws as freshmen develop into standouts.

--Hemingford senior Brian Turek won the 200 with a career-best of 23.39 and was second in the 100. Both of the Wyland brothers placed in the discus for the Bobcats.
