Star Valley High School Track & Field competed at Blackfoot on Thursday afternoon. Although conditions were not ideal, they were much improved than the local athletes have been dealing with in Wyoming.
“We had about 70 kids who competed on a dry track,” said head coach Ty Draney. “You know it’s been a rough winter when 38 degrees feels balmy.”
The Braves finished fourth as a team with 82.5 team points. Wyatt Moore won both the 100 and 200 meter events, Jesse Loveland won the 1600 and Asefa Wetzel and Peter Visser finsihed first and second in the 3200 meter.
The Lady Braves placed second with 110.0 team points without any individual champions. Riley Jo Heward (100 Hurdles) and Lily Jenkins (High Jump) had the highest individual finishes with second-place efforts.
The SVHS Track & Field team will be at Sugar City, Idaho next Thursday, March 21.
