Huskies set more PRs, AQs at home meet

Dontae Garza, Kody Gotfredson, Jacob Cook and Tanner Trujillo took second place in the 4×100 relay on their home track Friday and their time of 47.30 was good enough for an automatic  trip to the state meet in Casper in May. 

In the Powell Roundtable meet in Powell Saturday Gideon George took third in the triple jump with a PR and AQ distance of 39-06.75.

While those two were the only AQs for the Huskies in the home meet and at the Powell Roundtable Meet in Powell Saturday, Coach Ryan Olson said personal bests were recorded by athlete after athlete.

Jarom Davidson took first in the mile with a time of 4:37.62 , a personal best and just a shade off the school record of 4:34, which he has his eyes set on breaking.

Sydney Olson had a PR in the high jump, clearing 4-11; Garza continued to post PRs in his events; Melissa Bullinger had a PR in the 200 meters; Allison Wardell continues to improve in her events at each meet while Jacob Cook and freshman Jack Gotfredson show constant improvement in the pole vault.

 “This is Jack’s first year and he decided pole vault is his thing. He has the energy, asks the questions and stays after practice to work on it every night. Now we just have to find the right pole for him.”

Olson is especially pleased to have several athletes competing in shot put and discus, and believes a big reason for this is the influence of BHS alum and noted athlete Mike Aagard who came forth several years ago and built the program up to where it is today. 

The Huskies will compete in Worland Thursday (today), weather permitting, and go to Lovell Saturday.
