The Big Horn girls finished with 141.5 points, and the boys scored 135 points.

Katie Lambert followed her triple-jump title Friday with two more wins in Saturday’s events. The Big Horn sophomore won the 100-meter dash in dominating fashion, her 13.07-second finish three-tenths faster than teammate Baylee Clemens, who took second. Lambert also won the long jump at 16 feet, 3.5 inches, and she took third in the 300-meter hurdles at 48.52 seconds.

Just behind Lambert in the long jump was Alisyn Hutton, who took third in the event at 15 feet, 7 inches. She also took third in the high jump at 4 feet, 10 inches.

Big Horn’s day concluded with Will Pelissier’s third-place jump of 19 feet, 3 inches in long jump and Chris Alzheimer’s second-place throw of 47 feet, 6.25 inches in shot put.

Although the Tongue River teams finished ninth at the meet, the Eagles and Lady Eagles had some solid individual performances.

Peyton Bomar and Riley Rafferty once again set the tone for the Sheridan High School girls track team, which finished second with 141.5 points. Gillette won the meet with 207 points.

Bomar, who won the long jump Friday, won the triple jump Saturday at 36 feet, 3 inches. She also took second in both hurdle races — 15.87 seconds in 100-meter hurdles and 44.89 in 300-meter hurdles.

Rafferty won the 400-meter dash at 59.12 seconds, the only runner to break the one-minute mark. She also took second in the 100-meter dash at 12.48 seconds and second in the 4×400-meter relay with McKinley Christopherson, Taemalle Lawson and Pippin Robison (4:08.05).

The Sheridan boys took fourth at the regional meet with 100 points, just 2.5 points behind Cheyenne Central. Gillette won the meet with 164.5 points.

Alec Riegert took home three top-three finishes on the day, two in the hurdle competitions. He took second in the 300-meter hurdles (39.83) and third in 110-meter hurdles (15.17).
