Mayeske grabs gold at invitational track meet

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.
All told, the Blazers gathered enough points to place third in the 8 team field.
Next action comes May 10 as GEHS will host the 76th annual Eastern Kansas League meet.
