Kyle Stubler’s first place finish in the pole vault highlighted an impressive performance by the GEHS boys track team at the Olathe Invitational, April 12.
GEHS hosted the Olathe Invitational due to construction at the Olathe District Activity Center.
Stubler cleared 14-feet, 6-inches and is currently has the number-one vaulter in 6A Kansas track. It is the third best vault by a GEHS junior.
Right behind Stubler came Conner McGuire with a 14-feet pole vault clearance, the third best so far in 6A. Jake McIntire completed a Blazer sweep in pole vault earning third place with a personal best pole vault clearance of 13-feet, 6-inches.
Andrew Sprague finished second in the discus with a toss of 142-feet, 7-inches.
McItire added third place points in the 110-meter hurdles in a time of 17.54 seconds. It was McIntire’s first ever competition in the event.
Trey Smith took third in the triple jump with a leap of 39-feet, 7-inches.
While not placing, Trae Henderson timed a personal best 11.2 seconds in the 100-meter race. That clocking ranks number four on the all time GEHS junior 100-meter list.
“We had several outstanding individual performances,” said Coach Brian McGee. “I was real pleased with the effort.”
