Senior Matt Mayeske continued his dominance in the hurdling events grabbing gold medals in the 110 and 300 meters events highlighting the Blazer boys effort in a home track invitational April 30.
Equally impressive was senior Ben Carpenter, who cleared a season best 14’-8” to win the pole vault competition. Jaylon Radel added second place points in the 100 meters with a time of 10.8, and finished fourth place at 200 meters in 23.0. Dalton Shump finished fourth in the long jump with a leap of 20’-8”.
The day’s most pleasant surprise came from senior Brandon Rutherford, who finished second in the discus with a toss of 128’. Joe Sprague finished fourth in the same event with a 125’-11” effort and added seventh place points in the shot put with a heave of 140’-10”.
Senior Riley Craig threw the javelin 153’-5” to finish third and Anthony Cisneros finished fourth place in the same event with a 152” effort. Dewey Molenda took third in the 800 meter race in 2:04 and the 400 relay of Dalton Shump, Marcon Waters, Radel and Traevohn Wrench took second in an excellent time of 43.63. The 1600 relay was fourth in 3:35.
