CCHS track team starts season with inter-squad meet
The Crook County High School track and field team started the OSAA season 1 portion of their year with an inter-squad meet on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at Ward Rhoden Stadium.
As would be expected for a meet which took place after the entire spring sports season, most times were not especially fast. Still, there were some competitive events for an inter-squad meet.
In the boys competition, Triston Fischer won three events, while Alec Carne and Ayden Hall each won two. In the girls meet, Josie Kasberger and Eliot Moore each won three events while Dallas Hutchins won a pair of events.
Fischer won the 100-meter dash in a time of 12.31, raced to first in the 400 meter with a time of 53.37 and leaped 17-09.50 to win the long jump. Carne won the 1,500 with a time of 4:33.00 and also took first in the 300-meter intermediate hurdles in 44.56 seconds, while Hall won the shot put with a heave of 35-10.5 and also took first in the discus with a throw of 99-01.
Kasberger took all three throwing events in the girls competition, tossing the javelin 94-08, tossing the discus 93-09 and throwing the shot put 31-02.
Moore took her first in the high jump, 4-06, the 100 high hurdles, 21.58, and the 300 hurdles with a time of 59.03. Hutchins' two wins were in the long jump and triple jump with leaps of 13-06 and 32-09.5, respectively.
Other winners in the boys meet were Alex Smith with a time of 19.98 in the high hurdles, Azariah Becker with a toss of 96-11 in the javelin, Josh Knight with a clearance of 5-02 in the high jump, Joel Rice, who cleared 8-06 in the pole vault, and Kyree Willis, who won the triple jump with a leap of 34-06.
Winners in the girls meet included Makenna Duran in the 100 with a time of 15.05, Maggie Ramoss in the 400 in 1:06.02, Savannah Jessee in the 1,500 with a time of 5:58, and Kacie Wickershiem, who won the pole vault with a clearance of 6-06. Ivakai Heiges also cleared 6-06, but Wickershiem won the event due to fewer misses.
Several events were not contested at the meet, including the 200-meter dash, the 3,000-meter run and all of the relays.
