LANDER – “I thought we had a good showing at the regional track meet. For our girls to place 4th and we only took seven, that is outstanding,” said head coach Loren Huntsman.
Huntsman was talking about Lyman’s girls track team at the regional track meet last weekend in Lander.
Anne Wingeleth again dominated the girls team to add points to the girls score. Both a sprinter and a jumper, Wingeleth did well in her events. She took second in the 100 meter dash with a time of 13.00, just .33 behind the first place finish. Wingeleth nailed first in the triple jump, 38-01.50; long jump, 18-00.25 and high jump, 5-07.00.
McCaslynn Bradshaw continued to make points for the Lady Eagles. She placed fifth in both the triple jump with a distance of 32-06.50 and the long jump with a distance of 15-03,25, a fraction better than her seed.
Ashley Ott also performed well in both the long jump and the triple jump. In the long jump, she placed seventh and in the triple, ninth.
Taylor Limoges continued to add to the girls team score by taking second place in the shot put with a distance of 39-06.75, almost three feet further than her seed. In addition, she took fifth in the discus with a throw of 101-05.
Peyton Limoges took seventh in the pole vault with a height of 7-10.00.
All five girls are headed to the state meet this weekend in Casper.
The Lyman boys placed fifth out of the field for eight. On the boys team, Bobby Wingeleth again made marks with his jumping ability. He took first in the long jump with a distance of 22-03.50 and third in the triple jump with 42-03.00. He also added points to the boys team as a sprinter, taking third in the 100 meter dash with a time of 11.76.
Bransen Bradshaw also earned points in the 100 meter dash, taking fourth with a time of 11.81. He also did well in the shot put, throwing a distance of 42-08.50 for ninth place, just out of the range of points for the team.
Another tough contender who made it into state competition was Jon Harrison. At regional, Harrison took sixth in the110 meter hurdles with a time of 16.57. He is also a member of the boys 4x100 meter team that took first place and is headed to state. The team – Harrison, Wingeleth, Bradshaw and Kaden Legault – outpaced the second place team with a time of 44.64.
All of these boys are headed to state.
