Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Chase County SPVA track champions

Chase County showed off their power in winning both the boy’s and girl’s divisions of the SPVA Conference Track and Field championship held at the Sidney Track facility this past Friday. In the Women’s division they scored 160 points, with St. Pats runner-up with 128, followed by Bridgeport with 83, Sutherland 48, Hershey 45, Perkins County 32 and Kimball 28. In the Men’s division, it was Chase County 135, Perkins County 84, Sutherland 76, Bridgeport 70, Hershey 50, St. Pats 39 and Kimball 29. Despite not amassing a lot of team points, Kimball had some highlights. Brady Kilgore had an all around solid day, winning the 110 meter hurdles in 15.679, after running 15.495 in the prelims. He also won the high jump at 5’10” and ran 2nd in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 42.57. Kaden Adrian ran a season best time of 2:05.828 to take 5th in the 800. The 4x100 relay team ran 4th in 46.96 and the 4x400 relay team was 6th in 3:58.623. The boy’s pole vault event was strong with a Hershey vaulter winning at 15’1” and a pair of Sutherland vaulters both clearing 14’0”. Paycen Harroun was 5th for Kimball at 12’6” and Jaden Mohr 6th at 12’0”. On a negative note, Mohr suffered a severe ankle roll on his final vault, which could keep him out of action this week. Also of note, Byron Rowley made the finals in both the 100 and 200 meter dashes. The 4x800 relay team finished 7th and Beau Hanks was 7th in the triple jump at 38’3.75”. For the girls, Hannah Biesecker was 2nd in the long jump at 15’7” and Megan Spicer 5th at 14’3”. Jenna Greenwood was 5th in the triple jump at 31’3.5” and Spicer was 7th in the event at 30’11”. Biesecker also picked up 3rd place points in the 100 meter dash with her time of 13.864 and Spicer was again a 7th place finisher in 14.450. The 4x100 relay team of Spicer, Biesecker, Bemis and Greenwood ran 2nd in 53.632. Carli Wurdeman was 5th in the discus with a throw of 97’1”. Kennedy Lewis ran 7th in the 300 hurdles in 1:07.429 and was 8th in the vault at 7’0”. Coach Gene Mohr said that he is resting Sam Bemis, as she is nursing a knee, and he wants her at her best for the triple jump, especially for the District and State qualifying meet. Kimball will have their final warmup meet prior to District at tomorrow’s (Friday) Bayard B-C-D meet that has an 8:30 am start time. The District meet is schedule for May 10th at Sutherland.
