For the second time in two weeks the Bronco track squads headed to Sutherland.

Abbie Fanning and Emma Skelton continue to lead the way for the girls.

Fanning won the 400 meter dash over a second ahead of district foe Autumn Hild of Brady.

Fanning picked up fifth place in the 800 meter run behind runners from North Platte St. Pats and Perkins County.

Skelton placed in both the 100 and 300 meter hurdles.

Skelton finished third in the 300 hurdles behind Chase County’s Kristen Jussel and Aubrey Fisher.

In the 100 hurdles, Skelton was fourth behind Jussel, Fisher and Sutherland’s Joli Hopping. Hopping, Skelton and Sutherland’s Kristen Nelson all finished with a time of 17.3. Sutherland will also be in the Broncos district.

Skelton also picked up a sixth place finish in the long jump, one-half inch behind fifth place.

Fanning, Skelton, Sydnee Harchelroad and Leiauna Alberts teamed up for a third place finish in the 4x400 relay.

Jonee Maris continued to be consistent in the high jump. Maris again cleared 4’8” and picked up sixth place.

Coach Dawn Doetker said it was a very tough day for athletes in field events.

Tailor Lee made finals in both the shot put and discuss but failed to qualify. Hannah Nordhausen reached the finals of the discus but also did not qualify.

Jacob Maris paced the boys team once again.

Maris was fifth in the 1600 meter run and third in the 3200 meter run. Garrett Perlinger of Paxton ran away with both events and will compete in Wauneta-Palisade’s district.

Wes Anderjaska finished sixth in the 1600 meter run.

Three jumpers, including Bronco Jack McGraw, cleared 5’6” in the high jump. McGraw ended up fifth.

Anderjaska and Maris ran in the 4x400 relay with Hayden Pollmann and Landon Jutten. The foursome wrapped up the day with a fifth place finish.

“It was another tough meet,” said Doetker. “This meet gave us a heads up on what we need to do to compete with Brady, Paxton and Sutherland at districts.”

The teams will travel to Benkelman Monday to make up the Dundy County-Stratton Invitational which was postponed April 3.

RPAC will be held at Southern Valley on Friday, April 27.
