JH Track meet at Hartington

This is always a very good tournament with a lot of traditionally good track schools participating. We were very excited to win the team trophy, finishing 1 point ahead of runner-up Hartington Newcastle. This was truly a total team effort with 19 out of the 21 kids placing and earning medals and ribbons. Spencer Hille, Alex Vinson, Zach Reikofski, Owen Severson and Reese Hanna all placed in four events while Caden Wingert, Bradee Gubbels, and James Doyle each placed in three events. We had three first place performances with Alex winning the 200 m dash and shot put, and the 4 x 200 relay team of Zach R., Hudson Schultze, Karter Johnson, and Owen Severson also finishing in first place. We also had several other kids really step up for us today, Robert Aschoff placed in two relays and Darren Kelley place in both of the jumps. I was also really proud of our second relay teams for volunteering and scoring points for us today, this included Dominic True, Caleb Miller, James Doyle, Hunter Buchanon, Ethan David, Trevor Thompson, and Baylen Guenther. Kayson Maertins placed and scored points in the shot put. Other track members who performed well but just missed out on placing were Xander Brown and Matthew Alderson.

The Osmond JH track teams competed at the Pierce meet on Thursday, April 25th . The Tigers scored 22 points and finished in 4th place. Battle Creek was the team champion followed by Pierce and Wausa.
In this meet we only scored 22 points but I thought all the kids still performed well. We had a lot of 6th, 7th and 8th place finishes that didn’t score us many points. I told the kids this was a tough meet with a lot of good competition but it will help us later in the year. If we have these same times and distances in out next two meets we should do pretty good.
