High winds, missing team members work against RHS track team

RANGELY I The Rangely High School track teams competed in a meet Friday at Coal Ridge High School, where they met mild temperatures but high winds that made it difficult for all to compete.

Rangely had 25 athletes compete with 10 girls and 15 boys. Due to a couple of the girls’ teammates being missing, they were not able to run any relays.
The boys put together three teams for 4×100-, 4×200- and 4×400-meter relays. The 4×100 runners were Zach Glasgow, Brennan Noyes, Troy Allred and Ethan Allred, who finished 12th with a time of 50.79. The 4×200-meter relay runners were Kiki Ruiz, Nych Deleon, Colt Allred and Patrick Scoggins, who finished 12th for their race as well. The 4×400-meter relay runners were Mitchell Webber, Ethan Allred, Zach Glasgow and Patrick Scoggins, who finished fourth. They were able to improve their time by two seconds.
Rangely was able to pull together a coed throwers relay team made up of Meikka Peck, McKenzie Webber, Chance Sheppard and Kiki Ruiz, who finished fifth.
