SHERIDAN — Adverse weather delayed a good bit of the state track and field meet Friday at Kelly Walsh High School. But Mother Nature couldn’t stop Sheridan’s Max Myers from claiming a state championship. Myers held serve as the top seed, besting the field with a throw of 55 feet, 09.25 inches to garner 10 team points.

Due to the weather delay, team scores and some events were not completed at press time.

Tymer Goss recorded a third-place finish in the 800-meter run with a time of 1 minute, 57.66 seconds to score six team points, and Gus Wright finished in a tie for seventh in the high jump, clearing 5-10 to score 1.5 points.

The Lady Broncs tallied a combined 12 points in the 800-meter run. Pippin Robison finished third with a time of 2:17.93; Kelly Moodry crossed fourth, clocking in at 2:18.05 and Piper Carroll finished eighth with a time of 2:20.27.

Sheridan’s 400-meter relay team — McKinley Christopherson, Taemalle Lawson, Riley Rafferty and Samara Ordahl — crossed fourth with a time of 51.10 to score five points, and Jordan Christensen finished sixth in the shot put with a throw of 38-11.5 to reel in three team points.

Saturday marks the final day of the state meet.
