Track season continued Saturday for the Bronco girls and boys teams at the Sutherland Invitational.

It was a good day for the girls squad. The Lady Broncos finished fourth out of 12 teams with 61 points, four points out of third place.

The Lady Broncos brought home the top two spots in the 400 meter dash. Abbie Fanning won first place with a time of 1:03.8. Sydnee Harchelroad placed second with a personal record of 1:05.1. Harchelroad finished less than a second ahead of third and fourth places.

Harchelroad also picked up points in the 200 meter dash with a fourth place finish. Harchelroad was 0.1 seconds out of third place and 0.6 away from second.

Emma Skelton placed in both hurdle events. She finished fourth in the 100 hurdles, then placed second in the 300 hurdles. Both races were close at the finish. The times of the top four runners in the 100 hurdles were between 17.0 and 17.6 seconds. Skelton finished second by 0.1 seconds in the 300 hurdles.

The 4x400 relay finished second on the day. Fanning, Brianna Einspahr, Skelton and Harchelroad were two seconds behind the winners, running a season best 4:32.00.

Nicole Strand ran a personal best 16.9 in the 100 while Einspahr finished the 800 with a personal best. Fourth through sixth places ran time of 2:46, while Einspahr finished with a time of 2:49.

Hannah Nordhausen led the way in the field events. Nordhausen won the discus with a personal record of 100’2”, one inch better than second. Teammate Tailor Lee finished in third place with a toss of 95’7”. Lee placed fifth in the shot put with a throw of 30’2.5”.

Jonee Maris picked up points in the high jump with a leap of 4’8”, good enough for sixth place.

Coach Dawn Doetker said she was proud of the girls and their fourth place finish.

“The girls competed well,” said Doetker. “We had some disappointments. All we can do is learn from them and move and keep working hard.”

The boys team competed, once again, with limited numbers. Jacob Maris picked up all 10 of the teams’ points.

Maris finished second in the 3200 meter run and fifth in the 1600 meter run.

In a close race, Maris finished the 1600 two seconds away from fourth place and one second ahead of sixth.

Wes Anderjaska ran a personal best in the 400 with a time of 59.6. Chris Carl also scored a personal record throwing the shot put 30’5”.

“The boys were short of bodies again so that made it tough,” said Doetker.

Doetker says more boys have come out for track and she expects them to be ready for the next Sutherland Invite on April 13.
