Paced by Kyle Stubler and Conner McGuire, the Gardner Edgerton High School boys track team brought back sixth place from the Shawnee Mission South Relays last week.
Stubler, a senior, won the pole vault with a personal best leap of 15-feet, ranking him among the state’s best. Fellow senior Conner McGuire came right behind with a 14-feet clearance, which was good enough for second place.
Senior sprinter Traezon Henderson flashed mid-season form winning the 100 meters in 11.1 seconds, just one-hundredth of a second off of his personal best. Sophomore Matt Summerlin took second in a top time of 11.28 seconds. Summerlin’s time ranks as the second fastest sophomore time in GEHS history.
Henderson also took second at 200 meters in 22.6 seconds.
All told, St. Thomas Aquinas claimed team-title from a field of 11, outpointing Olathe Northwest by a 112-92 margin.
Blue Valley took third with 89, followed by Rockhurst, Shawnee Mission Northwest, GEHS, Shawnee Mission East, Shawnee Mission West, Shawnee Mission North, and Washington.
Next action comes April 10 at the Olathe East Invitational. The field will include Olathe North, Olathe East, Olathe South, Washburn Rural, and Mill Valley.
