SHERIDAN — Tongue River High School track and field athletes traveled to Powell Saturday after their scheduled competition in Glenrock was canceled Friday.

In one of the only competitions not canceled in advance by the weather, the L.A. Kohnke finished 12 girls events and 10 boys before it gave way due to inclement weather.

Head coach Chuck Walters said his team had a pretty good weekend, even as they left part of the team at home taking the ACT.

Amanda Hutchinson ran well in the girls 800. Her 2 minute 34.42 second time was good enough for second place. Hutchinson took second in the girls 400, running a 1:05.20.

Chayenne Malstrom (2.53:99) was sixth in the girls 800, and Elana Ostler was seventh in the girls 1,600 with a 6:44.13.

On the boys side, Austen Scammon took second in the 300 meter hurdles with his 43.80, and was fifth in the 100 hurdles.

In the 1,600 meter run, Cody Jolovich placed fourth, running the race in 5:05.

Walters said that the event was canceled before some of the 200 meter races, the two mile and the 4 by 4 could be run. Through the finished events, the Eagles and Lady Eagles were both in fifth place in the team scores.

Cody High School was well ahead of the field in both boys and girls team scores.

Next up, Tongue River athletes will compete in the Dan Hansen at Sheridan High School Saturday.
