Kilgore and Mohr Gold Medal winners at Bayard C-D


April 5, 2018

Kimball had lots of highlights at the Bayard C-D Track Invite, but none better than the gold medal wins by Brady Kilgore and Jaden Mohr, both in the boy’s division.

The Kimball boys scored 34 points to finish 6th in the field of 18 schools. Kilgore racked up his 3rd consecutive win in the 110 meter hurdles winning the gold with his improved time of 15.2 on a cold and dreary track day. The talented junior also ran 4th in the 300 hurdles in 44.93, was 3rd in the high jump at 5’8”, and was 8th in the long jump at 18’7”.

The Longhorns always get their points in the pole vault event and they had 3 places once again, with Jaden Mohr winning the gold with his vault of 11’6”. Paycen Harroun was 4th at 10’6” and Ethan Ratzlaff 6th at the same height.

The 4 x 800 relay team of Nicholas Thomas-Lewis, Sam Cajero, Zachery Wagner, and Kaden Adrian ran 4th with a good time of 9:43.20.

Brayden Tyan just missed a place in the triple jump finishing 7th at 36’4”. Byron Rowley made the finals in the 100 meter dash and ran 8th in 12.3. Colton Mielke ran the 12th fastest time in the prelims of the 110 meter hurdles in 21.36. The 4x100 relay team of Mielke, Jake Jenkins, Tyan and Rowley, ran 8th in 49.18 and were just .07 tenths of a second out of 6th place.

The Lady Longhorns scored 29 points and finished 8th in the team standings. No 1st place wins for the Kimball girls, but they came close. Freshman Megan Spicer, was just 3 inches from winning the long jump with her best leap of 15’0”. Jenna Greenwood was 2nd in the triple jump at 31’6.5” and Sam Bemis was 3rd at 31’5.5”. Spicer was 7th at 30’2.5”. Good point scoring in the the vault for the girls, too, with Bemis in 4th at 7’6”, Kennedy Lewis 6th at 7’0” and Raven Johnson 7th at 6’6”. Bemis ran 5th in the 100 meter dash in 13.9.

Other non-placing marks by the Kimball ladies showed Jenna Greenwood clearing 4’0”in the high jump. Bailie Brower got the shot out 28’5” and the discus 73’1”. Carli Wurdeman has a best throw of 81’1”. Kimball was without their ace long jumper, Hannah Biesecker, who is still nursing a quad muscle strain, but Coach Gene Mohr said she will probably jump and run in a relay at Grant this Saturday. The Longhorns are scheduled to compete at the Grant meet Saturday with a start time of 9 a.m.
