101The Lovell Chronicle I April 15, 2010 www.LovellChronicle.com Anderson near record in discus as Lovell thinclads look strong in Pavillion er 158.6-112 with Pinedale third at 89.3 points. 'Sb'e had 14 athletes, boys and girls, score," Ko- ritnik said. "It was a 1A-2A meet, so that shows the ath- letes how well they can do at that type of meet." Sophomore AJ Mon- tanez placed second in the discus at 130-3, Jonathan Wakelin seventh at 109-3 (a personal record) and Mark Grant eighth at 97-4. "That's the first time Jon has placed, which is kind of exciting for him," Koritnik noted. "The only teams from the West Re- gion that weren't there were Saratoga and Kemmerer, so athletes can feel that if they keep working they can place at the regional meet. Wind River was pretty represen- tative of what the regional meet might look like." Anderson also won the shot put with a throw of 52- 5 with Montanez third at 43-8 and Wakelin 15th at 31-9. Koritnik and his staff named Anderson as the male track and field athlete of the week. On the girls side, sopho- more Schuylar Davis placed second in the discus with a throw of 99-7. Miranda Griff- is was fourth at 85-5, Erin Robertson eighth at 66-0, a personal record. In the shot, Griffis placed fourth with a personal-record throw of 27-53, Robertson sixth at 26-1 (PR) and Davis sev- enth with a throw of 25-10. Bekah Schroeder was 13th at 23-3. Koritnik said Lovell jumpers placed well, though distances were general- BY DAVID PECK Lovell track and field coach Joe Koritnik said last week that, with thc hard work Tyler Anderson is putting in under the tu- telage of coach Chad Lind- say, he would "get off some big throws this season" as a senior. Call Joe Nostradamus. Anderson did uncork a big one Friday at the Wind River Invitational in Pavil- lion, flinging the discus a personal-record 173 feet, 3 inches to easily win the dis- cus competition. The throw was just two feet short of Lindsay's LHS school record of 175-4. Koritnik said Anderson topped his personal record by 11 feet. "With all the work he's done and Chad's done, as a senior I thought he'd have a huge throw at some point and he did," Koritnik said. "There are only a handful of kids in the state who have had a 170-foot throw. That's a really good throw. I'd like to think he'll do that again and possibly get a great throw in the shot put, too. He's put a lot of effort into track. "Obviously, it helps the team in a lot of ways from a leadership standpoint. Oth- ers can see that he's worked hard and is successful." Despite some cold, windy weather, the Bull- dogs and Lady Bulldogs had a strong day Friday. The Lovell girls won the team championship with 166 points, far ahead of second- place Dubois with 63. The Lovell boys finished sec- ond behind host Wind Riv- DAVID PECK Lovell freshman Chelsey Ellis sails toward a landing during the triple jump competition in Cody on March 27. The Lovell thinclads competed at the Wind River Invitational last Friday in Pavillion. ly down due to cold, windy weather. "It was cold in the morn- ing but warmed up in the af- ternoon," he said. "It was de- cent from about 1 on. But it was cold and windy for the jumpers and throwers. "I still think it will come together for the jumpers when we get better weath- er. In every meet they've jumped in pretty crummy conditions." Lovell went 2-3-4-7 in the girls long jump and 1-2- 5-8 in the triple jump. Se- nior Katie Walker won the triple jump at 33-8, and Karen Koritnik was second at 33-8, Jodi Walker fifth at 31-6 and Alyssa Geiser eighth at 30-10. Koritnik was second in the long jump at 15-, Ka- tie Walker third at 14-11, Jodi Walker fourth at 14-8 and Chelsey Ellis seventh at 13-6. Susie Shumway placed third in the high jump based on misses as one of many jumpers in a pack at 4-9. On the boys side, Lovell went 2-3-8 in the triple jump and 2-5-7 in the long jump. Freshman Cody Savage placed second in the triple jump with a leap of 37-9. Ben Long was third at 37- 63, Nathan Ballard eighth at 34-9. Dylan Hultgren fin- ished 13th at 33-7. In the long jump, Long placed second with a jump of 18-10, with Savage fifth at 17-10 and Ryan Croft seventh at 17-4. Dino Col- lins finished 10th at 16-7. Morgan Baxendale cleared 5-2 in the high jump, finish- ing 12th. RUNNING EVENTS In running events, soph- omore Colin May placed a strong third in the 3,200 meters with a personal-re- cord time of 10:50.88, with fellow soph Collin McArthur fourth at 11:07, his season best. "That was easily the best race I've seen Colin run," Koritnik said. "He ran an even-split race, and then over the last part was able to kick it in. He competed. He hit the splits Coach (Ca- leb) Sanders had for him, and yet he was strong at the end. He's going to per- form well down the stretch. I can also see Collin moving forward. I feel really good about the way those two are running." Junior Kenneth Mon- cur placed fifth in the 1,600 with a time of 5:05.05 and got some speed work in by running the 800 for the first time, placing seventh at 2:20.67. Adam Beck placed sixth in the 800 with a sea- son-best time of 2:20.43, fol- lowed by brother Jacob in 10th at 2:22.73 and Darren Ballard 12th at 2:31.11. Ja- cob Mayes finished 14th in Cody Savage takes the baton from Dino Collins during the 400-meter relay at the Yellowstone Sports Medicine Invitational in Cody on March 27. The Bulldogs will compete in Basin Friday and Powell Saturday, then host their own meet on April 24. the 1,600 meters at 6:13.47. "That was a good, solid effort for Adam," Koritnik said. "I'd like to see him con- tinue to move forward and get under 2:20." In the 400, senior Ryan Croft ran another strong race and placed second with a time of 54.94. Fel- low senior Ben Long placed third at 55 seconds, Mark Grant seventh at 58.39. Dy- lan Hultgren was 17th at 1:02.09. "Ryan ran a really good race," Koritnik said. "He ran 57 on a windy day (at Wor- land). I felt he could run un- der 55 on a good day. He ran under 55 and Ben was right at 55. We need to do some training specific to the 400 in order to progress." Sprint results were as follows: 200m dash - Dimas Patina 12th at 25.72, Hunt- er Hinckley 26.29, Nathan Grant 26.95; 100m dash - Brigham Hopkin 13th at 12.49, Patina 16th at 12.58, N. Grant 13.13. The quartet of Croft, Savage, Mark Grant and Long was solid in the 1,600-meter relay, placing third with a time of 3:51.76. The foursome of Patina, Croft, Collins and Savage placed fifth with a season- best time of 48.09. GIRLS STRONG The Lovell girls brought home titles from the sprints to long-distance races. Soph- omore Alyssa Geiser won both the 100- and 200-me- ter dash and was named the Lovell female athlete of the week. Geiser won the 100 with a personal-record time of 13.35 (13.53 in prelims) and the 200 in 28.55 (27.89 in prelims). Senior Stephanie Green ran the sprints for the first time this season and placed third in the 100 at 13.79 (13.61 prelims) and sixth in the 200 at 30.29 (29.41 in prelims). Geiser had an outstand- ing day, Koritnik said, and Green is proving to be a very versatile and valuable mem- ber of the team, he added. Kassidy Hetland nearly placed in the 100 with a time of 14.24. Cheyenne Brightly ran the 100 in 15.47 and the 200 in 33.30. Nicole Emmett ran the 400 in 1:27. The Shumway sisters and Meryk McArthur had another strong day. Susie Shumway trimmed 2 sec- onds off her season best in the 800 meters and won the race with a time of 2:31.97. Amanda Shumway won the 1,600 meters in 5:48.10. McArthur won the 3,200 with a time of 13.50 and placed second in the 1,600 at 6:28.8. Senior Mykel Ander- son ran for the first time since her injury suffered in the regional basketball tournament championship game and helped two relay teams to first-place finish- es. The 400-meter quartet of Chelsey Ellis, Karen Ko- ritnik, Anderson and Geiser won with a season-best time of 52.99, and the 1,600-me- ter foursome of Amanda Shumway, Katie Walker, Anderson and Susie Shum- way won with a season- best time of 4:20.76, which is just three seconds off the school record, Coach Korit- nik noted. "It's definitely doable," he said. "They're a good group. If a meet comes down to the last event (always the 1,600 relay), they'll be tough "e " " BUSY WEEKEND .... The Lvell thinclads will attend two meets this week, Riverside High School's first meet in many years on Fri- day and the Powell L.A. Kohnke Invitational Satur- day. Riverside has a newly- resurfaced track, Koritnik said, and the Bulldogs are happy to attend their meet, with younger athletes able to get in a meet after entries at Wind River were limited. Action begins at 2 p.m. Friday with field events, fol- lowed by running events at 3:30. The Powell track meet starts at 10 a.m. Saturday with field events, followed by running events at 10:30. Koritnik said some ath- letes may choose to treat the weekend like the regional meet, for instance running one distance race the first day and another the sec- ond. Home meet Saturday LMS Mustangs open track season at Powell With the season-opener at Greybull cancelled on March 30 due to cold weather, the Lovell Mustangs opened the 2010 mid- die school track season at the Powell Athletic Roundtable In- vitational on Saturday.

Aerial photography topic at sage grouse meeting The Big Horn Basin Local Sage Grouse Working Group will meet Friday, April 16, at 10 a.m., at Big Horn Federal Savings Bank in Thermopolis. Agricultural Research Service researcher Terry Booth will pres- ent his new, low-level aerial pho- tography methodology. The pur- pose of the new technique is to assist biologists in determining the location of sage-grouse winter concentration areas. The working group will dis- cuss project priorities for funding through the Sage Grouse Conser- vation Fund. Funding was recent- ly made available by the Wyoming Legislature to help implement lo- cal Sage-grouse Conservation Plans. The meeting is open to the public and a specific time will be reserved for public comments.
