CHRONICLE I April 17, 2014 I The Lovell Chronicle I 9 DAVm PECK Lovell sophomore Caitlyn Lundberg steams around the corner in the 200-meter dash Saturday during the L.A. Kohnke Invitational hosted by Powell High School. The Bulldogs will host the Lovell Invitational on Saturday, April 26. BY DAVID PECK The Lovell Bulldogs have certainly hit the busy stretch of the 2014 track and field season, participat- ing in track meets Friday in Burlington, Saturday in Powell and Tuesday in Cow- ley (see related story). They will now enjoy the Easter break before hosting the Lovell Invitational on Saturday, April 26. Coach Josh Sanders said the team enjoyed ex- cellent weather at the Bur- lington Invitational Friday, a meet coaches added at the last minute due to antici- pated inclement weather Saturday. "We liked going to that meet," Sander said. "It gave some of our athletes the op- portunity to get some points for lettering and to get some good marks with the good weather. "Our sprinting times were fast. That's what warm weather will do. Your muscles are loose. I'd guess it was 70 degrees." Sanders said even with adjusting for hand-held tim- ing, the times were excellent (coaches add .29 of a second to account for slow reaction in hand-held timing). Lovell swept both the boys and girls divisions in Burlington, topping Rocky Mountain 171-134 in the boys division and Shoshoni 164-85 for the girls title. Saturday in Powell, the Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs each placed third at the L.A. Kohnke Invitational. Powell won each division, followed by Cody and Lovell in the eight-team field. In the boys division it was Powell 249, Cody 150 and Lovell 79, and in the girls division it was Powell 166.5, Cody 141.5 and Lovell 120.5. Lovell out- scored Worland, Thermopo- lis, Greybull, Meeteetse and Ten Sleep in both divisions. The weather gradually deteriorated in Powell Sat- urday, as predicted, grow- ing increasingly colder and windy as a cold front moved in. "Toward the end of the meet the kids were wear- ing down," Sanders said. 'Tee could see the effects of the two meets back to back. We were glad to come out of it without any serious injuries." BOYS RESULTS Coaches named senior field events specialist Kade Englert as the male athlete of the week. Englert cleared 12-6 in the pole vault for the third week in a row Fri- day, winning the Burlington meet. He also set a person- al record in the long jump and prequalified for the state track meet with a leap of 19-9 and prequalified for State in the high jump, as well, clearing 5-10 Friday. "He's looking like Kade again," Sanders said. "Last year some issues prevented him from getting where he wanted to be. He has now prequalified in all three of his events." Another Cade is also coming on. Cade Bischoff started running the sprints this week at Burlington and prequalified for State in the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.46, good for third place. He was third at Powell, as well, Saturday at 11.74 with fully automatic timing. "Cade Bischoff looks fast," Sanders said. "I'm im- pressed with him. As the first leg of the 4-by-100 re- lay he looks fast, and we were very happy with his 100-meter dash times. We've struggled to place him. He also did the triple jump at Powell." The 400-meter re- lay team of Bischoff, Ty- ler Teter, Drake Welch and Britton Woody placed sec- ond in Burlington with a time of 47.33 seconds, but they were disqualified at Powell Saturday. Sanders said the quartet has some issues to work out with handoffs. Also running the 100 for the first time this season Friday was junior Drake Welch, who has mainly con- centrated on jumps so far. Welch placed eighth in the 100 meters Friday in Burl- ington with a time of 11.68, and he was 10th in Powell at 12.08. He also placed fourth in the triple jump Friday at 40-2 and was second at Pow- ell, jumping 40-3-1/2. "Drake has gone further in indoor (track)," Sand- ers said. "He's all tight like a knot. He does so much weightlifting. I'd like him to be more flexible." Bischoff placed third in the triple jump Saturday in Powell, sailing 39-5-1/4. Freshman Brandon Teter placed sixth in the triple jump Friday in Burlington with a jump of 39-4 and was fourth in Powell at 39-3-1/2. Teter also placed sec- ond in the high jump Fri- day, clearing 6 feet, then placed second in Powell Saturday at 5-10. Brandon Wolvington jumped 5-6 at both meets, placing seventh in Burlington and fifth in Powell. In the long jump, Bis- choff placed second in Bur- SEE 'LHS THINCLADS PRE-QUALIW,' page 11 BY DAVID PECK The Rocky Mountain Grizzlies stayed in the school district Friday as they traveled south to the Burlington Invitational, enjoying a mild, if breezy, day. Coach Tobee Christian- sen said the meet was a success as his athletes hit their mid-season stride. "We had nine kids pre- qualify for State," he said. "Some of those were re- peats, but I'm excited to see running times and hit- ting jumps on a consistent basis. We had a lot of PRs (personal records). That tells you a lot about a kid. They're continuing to get better. That shows a lot of character." The Grizz and Lady Grizz placed second behind Lovell with 202.5 team points overall. The Rocky boys were second with 134 points, the girls fourth with 68.5 points. Junior Cannon Sim- mons blazed to a time of 11.21 seconds in the 100-meter dash to win the event, set a new personal record and prequalify for State. He also placed sec- ond by a step to his broth- er Cole in the 200-meter dash. Cole ran 24.71, Can- non 24.93 to place first and second. The two brothers were also strong in the triple jump. Cole won the event at 40-7, and Cannon was one inch behind at 40-6, a per- sonal record. Both prequal- ified for State. It was a good day for the sprinters as seven ath- letes ran PRs. Caleb Hor- rocks placed sixth in the 100, just missing prequal- ifying time for hand-held timing at 11.64 seconds, and Joey Jewell was ninth at 11.71, Cole Simmons llth at 11.86, a PR. The 400-meter relay team of Kirby Winland, Jewell and Cannon and Cole Simmons took first place with a time of 45.62, the second Rocky combina- tion to prequalify for State. "We had some great performances (in the sprints)," Christiansen said. "I was proud of them. With (the new foursome in) the 4x100, that gives us some options down the road." John Higgins placed third in the 400-meter dash with a solid time of 58.08, and senior Joey Carroll ran 2:34.56 in the 1,600, good for seventh place, while Yo- suke Taniguchi ran 2:37.91 to place eighth. Freshman Dominic Twomey was strong in the distance races, winning the 3,200 in 12:09.38 and plac- ing second in the 1,600 at 5:27.15. Carroll was fourth at 5:39.38, Taniguchi fifth at 5:57.88 and Josh Mc- Cracken seventh at 6:58.12. The quartet of Winland, Horrocks, Bill Despain and Higgins won the 1,600-me- ter relay, running the four laps in 3:52.15. "I was proud of the guys.

BY SAM SMITH The North Big Horn wrestling squad took eight wrestlers to the Sheri- dan Shootout Saturday as they prepared for State in Casper. "Alex and Asher Nich- olson ended their season with the Sheridan Shootout and did a great job," Ang- ie Spann said. "Both boys stayed throughout Sunday and wrestled all three styles. "Going to the Sheridan Shootout was a great op= portunity for our team so they could get a better feel for more of the other com- petition they will be fac- ing this coming week at State. There were a lot of wrestlers over there that our kids have never had the opportunity to wres- tle and the competition was very good. Many of our kids came home with a better understanding of where they need to be men- tally when they show up to State." Spann reported the fol- lowing results from Satur- day's meet in Sheridan: Folkstyle results PeeWee 45A - Zayden Stahl, 1st, 23.00 pts. Bantam 45B- Tyler Wilkerson, 5th, 7.00 pts.
