May 10, 2012 I The Lovell Chronicle I 11 Shumway breaks Bischoff 200-meter record in Thermop BY DAVID PECK With numerous athletes staying home to prepare for the junior-senior prom lat- er that night, a handful of Lovell thinclads traveled to the Thermopolis Pro-Region- al Friday, and the young ath- letes turned in some strong performances. Perhaps the highlight of the meet was the perfor- mance of sophomore Kim Shumway, who broke Bet- sy Bischoffs record in the 200-meter dash set in 2005. Shumway finished second to Rawlins racehorse Keres- ton Thomas, with a time of 25.67, breaking Bischoffs re- cord of 25.94. Thomas won at 25.42 and holds the Class 3A state record in both the 100 and 200. Coach Joshua Sand- ers named Shumway as the Lovell female athlete of the week. "She came around the curve behind the Thomas girl, then used the straight- away to get into a good stride," Sanders said. "The girl pulled her and Kim got stronger down the straight- away and almost caught her. We couldn't tell who won. "The Thomas girl does a good job getting out and run- ning the curve. Once Kim gets to the straightaway, that's a better part of the race for her. It was a fun race to watch." In another highlight from Thermop, freshman Ameesha Anderson set two new personal records in the sprints, placing fourth in the 100-meter dash with a time of 14.11 and sixth in the 200 with a time of 29.13. "She looked fast," Sand- ers said. 'We have several fast freshman girls. NATHAN OSTER Lovell sophomore Derek Phelps cruises over a hurdle during the Thermopolis Pre-Regional Friday. Phelps slashed his time in both hurdles races Friday. Fellow frosh Lauren Hinckley placed 10th in the 100 at 14.63. In the only other running performance for the Lady Bulldogs, freshman Whit- ney Grant placed third in the 100-meter intermediate hur- dles with a time of 17.63, just 1/100th of a second off of her PR. "It was good to see that, breaking into the 17s again," Sanders said. "That shows where she is." In field events, Shum- way placed second in the long jump with a leap of 15-10. "She's very close to that 16-foot mark," Sanders said. "In the last couple of weeks she's been at 15-11 and 15- 10. That's really great to see." Freshman Chayli McAr- thur placed third in the tri- ple jump with a jump of 31- 7, and she placed fourth in the high jump, clearing 4-4. Hinckley finished 16th in the long jump at 11-93A. Sophomore Katie Hoover placed sixth in the shot put with a throw of 30-3 34 and threw the discus 62-8. Sa- mantha Stevens threw the shot 20-11 and the discus 59- 23A. "Katie's been throwing well in the shot put," Sand- ers said. "That's twice in a row that she hit the 30-foot mark. She has made steady improvement there." BOYS RESULTS Sanders named sopho- more Kade Englert as the male athlete of the week. Englert placed second and qualified for State in the pole vault by clearing 11-6, a per- sonal record. "Coach (Daniel) Robert- son has been trying to get him to vault with more con- trol, and it's been helping him out," Sanders noted. Englert also placed third in the high jump, clearing 5-8. Sophomore Calin McAr- thur won the 400-meter dash with a personal-record time of 57.02. "That's not blazing, but it's his best time," Sanders said. "We'd like him to be in the low 56 or possibly the 55 range for the 1,600-meter re- lay." Michael Brightly fin- ished 20th in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.82, and Aaron Monterde ran 13.37. Mysen McArthur fin- ished 14th in the 200-meter dash with a time of 27.12, a PR. Brightly placed fourth in the 400-meter dash at 58.47, and Mysen McArthur was llth at 1:02.21. He also fin- ished 13th in the 800 meters with a time of 2:31.52. Mi- chael Steiner finished 12th in the i,600 meters with a time of 5:55.58. AJ Dickson placed sec- ond in the 3,200 with a time of 11:14.44. Sanders had praise for sophomore Derek Phelps, who improved dramatically in the 110- and 300-meter hurdles. Phelps cut nearly two seconds off his PR in the 110 hurdles and placed ninth with a time of 19.81, and he slashed five seconds off his best time in the 300 hurdles, finishing 14th with a time of 50.54. "Derek had a great prac- tice on Thursday and got PRs in both hurdle events Friday," Sanders said. "We could see it coming with his practice Thursday. Zeke Col- lins, too." Collins ran a personal- record time of 49.47 in the 300 hurdles to finish 13th. In field events, Calin McArthur placed fifth in the long jump with a leap of 18- 6, and Englert was right be- hind him in ninth at 18-1. Mysen McArthur was llth in the triple jump at 36-%, Seth Kite was 18th at 33-10, a per- sonal record. "Seth is starting to catch on to the technique in the tri- ple jump, same with Mysen," Sanders said. In throwing events, freshman Alex Connour threw a personal-record 33-1 to finish 11th in the shot put and threw the discus 97-3 to finish 11th. McKay Mayes finished 18th in the shot pug with a toss of 31-1034, and Jacob Price was 19th at 31- 2. Tyler Tillett threw the shot 23-4. Aaron Monterde blew away his PR in the discus and placed eighth with a throw of 98-11. "He was close to 100 feet and that was exciting to see,'! Sanders noted. Tillett threw the dis, cus 71-8, and Sloan Calvin flipped the discus 54-634. REGIONALS The Bulldogs will be back at full strength for the 2A West Regionals in River4 ton this Friday and Satur- day. Sanders said the Lovell lineup is pretty much set. "Every week we post the top four in every event, and for the most part that will an- swer the questions we have," he said. "In some cases we had a run-off or a jump-off, and we will review this with our coaches, but we're set for Regionals. People know where they're at." Action begins Friday at 9 a.m. and again Saturday at 9 for running events and fiel d events. Class 2A will share the meet with both Class 1A and Class 4A teams. Grizz prep for Regionals at Thermopolis meet Coaches BY DAVID PECK three setting personal re- Kirby Winland ninth at 37- needed as The Rocky Mountain Grizzlies tuned up for the regional track meet at the ThermopoHs Pre-Re- gional Friday, and coach Dave Beemer said all is just about ready for the 2A West Regional in Riverton this weekend. The 2A West Regional starts Friday and contin- ues Saturday in Riverton, with action beginning at 9 a.m. each day. Also com- peting will be 1A and 4A athletes. "We're backing off on the jumps," Beemer said. "We're tapering off on any- one jumping. We'll run pretty good Monday and Tuesday, then have a light workout Wednesday." In the pre-regional Fri- day, the quartet of Joey Jewell, Cannon Simmons, Kirby Winland and Derik Romero pre-qualified for the state track meet with a time of 46.97, good for fourth place at Thermop. "There was a lot of speed down there. Dubois and Big Piney had some real burners," Beemer said. "We pre-qualified and got fourth. It was bizarre. We had two handoffs that weren't great. I think we can still knock half a sec- ond off." In other pre-region- al highlights, the Rocky 400-meter dash runners had a good day, with two of the cords. Jake Loyning placed sixth with a time of 59.16 (PR), Brady Winland: sev: enth at 59.30 and Caleb Hor- rocks eighth at 59.48 (PR). Loyning also placed ninth in the 800 meters with a time of 2:27.19, and Horrocks fin- ished 14th at 2:32.94. In the sprints, Romero placed sixth in the 100-me- ter dash with a time of 11.86, and Austin Brost was 13th at 12.32. Bryce Ward placed fourth in the 200-meter dash at 24.59, Brost seventh at 25.07 (PR) and Horrocks 15th at 27.23. Ward was strong, once again, in the hurdles rac- es. The junior placed fifth in the ll0-meter high hur- dles with a time of 17.90 and fourth in the 300-me- ter intermediate hurdles at 44.89, a personal record. "Bryce has been work- ing hard on the 300s," Beemer said. "His problem is he's going to have to go to Regionals and run eight races in two days with pre- liminaries. But they'll be spread out." Casey Banks slashed 38 seconds off his person- al record in the 3,200 and placed sixth with a time of 11:45.84. In field events, Jewell placed fourth in the long jump with a leap of 18-8, and Simmons placed fifth in the triple jump at 38-8, 3. Winland also placed sixth in the high jump, ]earing 5-4. ' . Chase Aagard threw the shot 29-134 and the dis- cus 93-11. In girls events Friday, freshman Mikaela Hock- er and sophomore Haley Strata each had a strong day.

Hocker placed fourth in the 300 hurdles at 55.72 and fifth in the 100 hurdles at 18.26. Strom also finished 13th in the 100-meter dash with a time of 14.81, and Sydney Tyacke was 16th at 15.25. The quartet of Strom, Hocker, Haley Stauffer and Tyacke placed third in the 400-meter relay with a time of 59.21. Freshman Jennifer Parker set a personal re- cord in the shot put, plac- ing eighth with a throw of 29-1. Ashley Bridges threw the shot 22-6, and Alana Senn threw 22-1. Senn threw the discus 70 feet, Bridges threw 64-10 and Parker 56-2. Tyacke jumped 11-10V2 in the long jump. "Alana throws 80 feet in practice (discus)," Beem- er said. "I hope she'll do that at Regionals." NATHAN OSTER Haley Strom hands the baton to Mikaela Hocker during the 400-meter relay at the Thermopolis Pre- Regional meet Friday. The Rocky relay team placed third.
