Both Gator Girl's and Boy's track teams closed out the regular season this past week at the two day Jeffco League Meet. Nine athletes came away with all conference honors. In addition, several athletes used this last meet as a chance to qualify for the CHSAA State Track Meet to be held May 19th- 21st.
The Boys 4X200 relay of Darren Hay '18, Tyler Williams '19, Ty Webber '18 and Wyatt Nightingale '16 took first place, earning 1st Team All Conference Honors with a time of 1:33.00. Ranked 25th in the State, they just missed out on one of the top 18 spots to go to the State Meet.
Garrett Martin earned 1st Team All Conference Honors and qualified for State in the High Jump (Photo courtesy or Eric Nelson.)
Garrett Martin '18 also earned 1st Team All Conference Honors, winning the High Jump with a Personal Record (PR) 6-5ft jump. This ranks him 4th in the State this season and earned him an entry to the State Meet.
Tyler Williams ran an exciting 400M for 3rd place and 8th overall in the State (Photo courtesy of Aaron Smith.)
For both Williams (400M, 49.65) and the Girls 4X800 (Anna Nelson '17, Veronica Petrillo '18, Emma Abernethy '17, Savannah Martin '18, 9:51.56), placing 3rd at the League Meet (All Conference Honorable Mention) translated into 8th best times in the State. All five will be running at the State Meet. After scratches, Williams will be the 4th seed in his event. The girls will retain their 8th seed. The 4X800 relay also broke the school record set last year by Abernethy, Nelson, Martin and Casey Torbet '15.
The Girls 4X800 also ran to 3rd place in the league and 8th place in the State. They also claim a new school record. (Photo courtesy of Jennifer Lawrence.)
