SHERIDAN — The Sheridan High School girls track and field team isn’t loaded with talent or as as much depth as last year. But with the student-athletes they do have, the Lady Broncs performed just about as good as they could have asked for during the first day of the regional meet at Sheridan Friday.
“Our girls did an unbelievable job today for what we can do,” Sheridan head coach Taylor Kelting said. “I told the majority of our girls, ‘We couldn’t have had a better day.’”
Sheridan earned 48.5 points to position it in third. Laramie leads after day one with 69 points and Cheyenne Central sits in second after scoring 55.5 points.
Jordan Christensen headlined the day, winning the shot put. She logged a throw of 41 feet, 7.5 inches and had plenty of teammates make it on the podium, as well. Alex Cameron placed sixth with a toss of 36-04.5, and Liz Romanjenko took seventh with a mark of 34-9.5.
The Lady Broncs also littered the podium in high jump. Madyson Godwin placed runner-up, clearing 5-2. Dulce Carroll tied for third with a mark of 5 feet, and Preslee Moser finished sixth after clearing 4-10.
Sylvia Brown crossed sixth in 3,200-meter run with a time of 11:50.95, and Kate Moran wasn’t far behind, placing eighth in a time of 12:01.81. Katie Turpin took seventh in the 800-meter run, clocking in at 2:25.01, and Rachel Petersburg rounded out the points scorers, finishing eighth in long jump after recording a leap of 15-3.75.
Lady Rams score more than expected
BIG HORN — The Big Horn High School girls track and field team entered the first day of the regional meet in Sheridan with a point goal in mind. The Lady Rams not only reached that goal but surpassed it.
Big Horn tallied 28 points, which puts them in fifth. Pine Bluffs leads having scored 105 points, while Moorcroft and Southeast stand in second and third place with 39 and 35 points, respectively.
“We had some really good performances,” Big Horn head coach Kirk McLaughlin said. “I was really happy with how our seniors stepped up today. I think that they competed top notch. … I thought we scored more points than I anticipated.”
Alisyn Hutton led the way, placing third in high jump, clearing 4 feet, 10 inches. She also took fourth in long jump with a leap of 15-9.
Laura Beigel finished fifth in high jump with a mark of 4-10, and Reata Cook paced the Lady Rams on the track with a fourth-place finish in the 3,200-meter run, clocking in at 13 minutes, 45.67 seconds.
