ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Lone Tree took the top spot in the Class B competition at WACO last Thursday with solid performances up and down the lineup.

“We ran our best meet of the year at Ekstrand and that’s a good meet to do it at for sure,” Lone Tree coach Bailey Donovan said. “To see us do it with some of our best times of the year makes you think we’re on the right track.”

Highland and Iowa Mennonite were in attendance as well, taking sixth and eighth place of nine teams.

Donovan said the highlight performance of the night came from Ty Griffin in the 400 meter hurdles. Donovan said Griffin has worked extremely hard all season to get under the one-minute mark and finally did so with a time of 59.69.

He also noted Brock Smith, who finished first in the 800 and second in the 400. Lone Tree got wins from Brady Dauber in the long jump with a long of 19-feet 3.5-inches and Casey Shalla in the shot put with a long of 43-feet 4.25 inches.

Highland’s relays continued to provide scoring for them with top five performances in the 4x100 meter relay , 4x200 meter relay, 800 meter sprint medley and the 1600 meter distance medley. Bryce Waters has been a solid starter for the Huskies, as he leads off all four of those relay teams.

Iowa Mennonite scored 27 points on the day, with 20 of those coming from Levi Geyer’s first place finishes in the 1600 and 3200 meter runs. His 10:34.91 in the 3200 was the best in Class B by 30 seconds. His 1600 meter time of 4:51.31 is a new personal best for Geyer and the first time he’s run the race outdoors this season.

Iowa Mennonite coach Marty Gingerich also noted that thrower Adrian Venegas led the way for Iowa Mennonite in both the shot put and discus with personal bests. He took seventh in the shot put at 34-feet 11.25-inches and 10th place in the discus at 91-feet 8.5-inches.

Iowa Mennonite’s other points on the day came from the 4x400, 4x200 meter relay and the 4x100 meter relay.
