RANGELY | The Rangely Panthers headed to Stocker Stadium on Saturday for the Frank Woodburn Invitational hosted by Palisade High School. With 24 teams and more than 800 athletes, the Panthers were going to have to be at their best if they were going to place.
Makenzie Cochrane, rose to the challenge as she placed in both her throws. She had a new personal best of 33 feet 1.5 inches in the shot placing seventh and then turned around to place third in the discus with a throw of 104-4.
Senior Marshall Webber placed 11th in the 110 high hurdles and ninth in the 300-meter hurdles, which was impressive since he was in the first heat and didn’t have any competition. He used the races as a training opportunity.
Senior Breanna Davis represented the Panthers well by placing 20th in the shot put with a throw of 28-7 and earned a new season’s best record in the discus.
