See story, Page B8.

Brady Kilgore did not disappoint and kept his win streak in the 110 meter high hurdles alive by winning at the Best in the West Track Classic held this past week at the Scottsbluff High School Stadium site.

The talented Kimball High senior won his favorite event in 15.15 seconds and came from behind to get the win in a tight race among the top three.

He also earned the 3rd place medal in the 300 hurdles with his time of 41.12 and ran a PR in doing so. As a qualifier in three events, he also finished 6th in the high jump at 6'1".

An exciting night for Kimball's Zach Wagner, who had the 7th best qualifying time of the 8 runners in the 800 meters of 2:13.18, but blasted out to a new person best time of 2:05.28 to finish second and win the silver medal.

Tommy Lenzen was a two event qualifier for Kimball and although he failed to earn a medal as a top 3 placer in either event, he ran 5:16.64 in the 1600 and 11:25.59 in the 3200.

Deven Sullivan of Banner County ran a good time of 4:58.58 in the 1600.

Kimball junior Beau Hanks never got close to his season best jumps in the triple jump and had a best of 37'11.5" at the Best in the West.

He will be back again next year
