Lady Braves take team title at Sugar Invite

The weather wasn’t perfect but it never is in the early days of the Spring sports season as the SVHS Track and Field squad traveled to Sugar City, Idaho to compete for the first time as a full group.

In all the coaches estimate they took between 120 and 130 athletes to the Sugar Invite where they where met with a punishing wind that often peppered their faces with grit and sand.

The Lady Braves picked up three event titles but also collected eight top-three finishes to forge 93.0 team points and win the meet. Valerie Jirak won the High Jump and placed second in the 100-Meter dash. Jacie Angell won the 800 Meter and Sadie Hulse won the Long Jump.

Elizabeth Moffat placed second in the Shot Put while also placing fifth in the Discus. Ava Morgan was second in the Triple Jump and Avery Kabonic was third in the Long Jump.

The ladies finished with 93.0 points, pulling away from South Fremont who placed second with 68.5. Blackfoot rounded out the top-three with 64.0.

Peter Visser won the 800 Meter race for the guys with Gabe Clinger placing second in the High Jump as the Braves scored 70.5 team points to finish fourth. Sugar-Salem won the boys side with a total of 112.0. Blackfoot was second with 78.5, edging Teton who placed third with 78.0.

Star Valley will host their annual home meet next Wednesday, April 14, with the Dave Draney Invite taking place at Braves Field. The event will be broadcast by SVI Media.
