Even though Cedaredge did not win either the girls or boys division of last week's Frank Woodburn Track Meet, the Bruins had some impressive wins. Cedaredge's boys finished second with 103.5 points and the girls were seventh with 47.5 points.
The boys were second to Fruita (117 points) and rode the performances of several athletes to earn their second-place finish.
Sierra Williams took part in the 100m dash and the 400m relay, and as usual, helped put first-place points on the board with a win in the 100m and 400m relay.
There were other team members who also had time off from their regular events. Rebecca Deal did not compete in either the long or triple jump competitons.
A sparse number of first-place finishes gave testimony to the fact that head coach Kirby Henderson gave some of his highest performing athletes a slight break in their rugged routines.
Williams' win in the 100m was a lower time than her 12.54 in Cedaredge a week ago. This week's clocking was 12.47. The 400m relay team of Williams, Savannah McIntire, Tani Zamarripa and Summer Herman had a time of 51.16 to win the event.
There were no second place finishes for the Lady Bruins, another tell-tale sign some athletes were either competing in other events or not competing at all.
McIntire's third-place finishes in the 400m (62.77) and 200m (27.58) were the only ones for Cedaredge.
Freshman Mackenzie Kehmeier had a pair of fourth place finishes in the 400m and 200m.
Jessica Sullivan was seventh in the 800m and Kaitlyn Kissner was seventh in the discus and eighth in the high jump while Rachael Latta placed eighth in the long jump.

Cedaredge's boys had themselves a good day last Saturday and collected 103.5 points to finish second behind Fruita Monument and their 117 points.
Dante Markley was outstanding for the Bruins with three first-place finishes and a fifth.
Markley won the 100m dash (11.69), 110m high hurdles (16.74), and 300m hurdles (42.09) to score 30 of the Bruins' points. He, along with Dagan Smith, Reid Gates and Xander Camp, placed fifth in the 800m relay.
One other first-place finish for the Bruins went to Gates for his leap of 6-4.25 in the high jump.
Gates was busy in the triple and long jump competitions as well and finished with third places in each of those events.
Tylor Balistreri threw the shot 45-9 to place third and teammate Miguel Barajas was fourth with his toss of 45-6.
Danny Martinez took a fourth place in the high jump and was fifth in long jump. Dagan Smith was fifth in the high jump with Barajas placing fifth in the discus.
Other fifth places went to the Bruins' 3200m relay team, 400m relay team, and Steton Brewer in the 300m hurdles.
Cedaredge's 3200m relay team consists of Kyle Kanz, Dylan Buckallew, Dustan Hejny and Austin Fischer. Jake Arter, Camp, Ryan Latta and Austin Williams make up the 400m relay team.
Buckallew also took sixth in the 800m run and Camp seventh in long jump.
The Bruins, along with the rest of Delta County's track teams, are at the Coal Ridge Invitational on Friday (April 13).blog comments powered by Disqus
