Culver races with strong Crook County teams
Thursday night Crook County High School hosted the Culver Bulldogs in a dual track meet at Ward Rhoden Stadium in Prineville.
With far more firepower than the class 2A Bulldogs, both the Cowboys and Cowgirls easily won the meet.
The Cowboys outscored the Bulldogs 353.5 to 54.5, while the Cowgirls outscored Culver 370 to 19.
Culver head coach Nathan Barber is also happy that his kids are back on the track.
"I was happy for the sophomores. They were not able to get any personal records last year as freshmen, so this track meet was their first high school track meet. Hopefully they can take their times and distances and use them as a goal for this spring if we are able to have a season. All of our athletes did very well after the long layoff they have had."
With just two teams at the meet the two teams did not contest every running event. The two schools did not run either relay race, the 400 meters or the 1,500 meters.
Of the remaining events Crook County won all but one. The Cowboys swept all 13 events contested in the meet, while the Cowgirls won 12 of 13.
Culver's Anyla Rico was their lone victory taking first in the javelin with a throw of 1-2-06 fourth in the discus with a toss of 76-04 and fifth in the shot put with a heave of 25-06. Rico was the lone Culver girl to compete in the meet.
Although Culver athletes did not win any boys events according to Barber they still had some great performances.
"For the short amount of practice that we had they they have had they worked very hard," he said. "Rico was awesome. She really performed weill in the javelin as weel as in the shot put and discus and Peter Miranda, Max Jaimes, Keegan Lambries all did very well in all of their throwing events, while Ethan Russo, Trent Reese, Aaron Scott and Andreas Mendez did well in their running events."
Russo finished eight in the 100 with a time of 13.11, was ninth in 13.49, while Scott was 11th with a time of 13.73.
Reese finished seventh in the 200 in 29.23, while Scott was eight in 30.55. Scott came back to finish fifth in the 800 with a time of 2:48.04, while Mendez was sixth in 2:56.52.
