MEEKER | Meeker’s middle school track team had a busy week, hosting Rangely, Craig and Hayden at our Night Relays meet on Thursday, and then travelling to Steamboat Springs for Saturday’s meet.
The home meet, as the name implies, featured only relay races, and even the field events consisted of “relay teams” of three or four teammates scoring together. Notable performances include the Meeker girls winning the Shuttle Hurdle and 4×400 relays, and Taylor Garcia, Adi Selle, Reese Clatterbaugh, and Zoe Baldozier winning the 4×100. The same group also won the 4×200 relay, setting a new Barone Middle School record. The Meeker girls teams also took first place in shot put and discus, as well as high jump. Our boys teams also won both throwing events, and Aidan Tapia, Bradley Parish, Wyatt Rollins and Tristin Rollins took first in the shuttle hurdles. The girls won in team scoring, with the boys placing second.
The meet in Steamboat Springs was also run and scored without age divisions. Complete results are not yet available, but Cade Blunt won discus and shot put, and Clay Crawford was second in the 200-meter dash. Sam Hightower took second place in the triple jump. Ella Dunn won the 100 Meter Dash with a time of 14.01 seconds. Daya Trabaudo won the girls’ shot put, with Addie Knowles second in discus. Reese Clatterbaugh was first place in triple jump. Taylor Garcia won the 400-meter dash. Rylee Sullivan, Naomy Villalpando, Addie Knowles, and Jacey Follman won the 4×400 relay, and Garcia, Clatterbaugh, Taylor Schacht, and Aimee Shults were first in the 4×200.
“We had some really good results for such an abbreviated season, and I want to thank all of our students for their hard work,” said coach Marty Casey.
