There were 11 Class 3A schools represented at last week's 3A WSL track meet held at Stocker Stadium in Grand Junction. Coal Ridge ran away with the team title after scoring 150 points. Delta High School's girls finished with 104 points to place second.
The Panthers picked up four individual first place finishes at last week's 3A WSL meet. Lily Lockhart earned her eighth straight double-win of the season with wins in shot put (41-7) and discus (124-6). Lockhart is ranked second in 3A shot put with a throw of 43-2.25 and second in discus with her throw of 132-9. Eaton's Taryn Sieg is first in state rankings for shot put (43-11.25) and discus (142-6).
Others placing for Delta in shot put included Reagan Clay, third (32-9) and Taylor Bess, eighth (29-5.5).
Other first-place finishes were recorded by Emily Baier in triple jump (33-2.5), and Kaley St. Peter in long jump (16-4.5). Baier is ranked 11th in triple jump at state with a leap of 34-4.75 and St. Peter is 15th with her jump at last weekend's 3A WSL meet.
Madison Gieck also earned points in long jump with a sixth-place leap of 14-0.5.
St. Peter was second in the 100m hurdles with her PR time of 17.08 (ranked 16th in Class 3A) and second in the 300m hurdles where she PR'd with a time of 49.97, which gives her an 18th place ranking in Class 3A. Remi Baldwin placed sixth in the 100m hurdles (17.95) and was fourth in the 300m hurdles (53.29).
Beki Atchley has worked hard to improve her PR times and was rewarded with a third place finish in the 200m dash (27.35) and a second place run in the 400m dash (1:01.35) and is ranked 12th for her PR effort of 1:00.74 in Grand Junction earlier in the season.
Missa Webb, after completing her soccer season a week ago, ran in last week's 100 and 200m dashes in Grand Junction.
Webb placed fourth in the 100m with a time of 13.24 in the finals, but she was timed at 13.09 in the preliminaries, and is ranked 15th with that time in Class 3A. Webb ran a 28.30 in the 200m dash and placed seventh.
The Panthers had two relay teams finish in the top eight.
Last week's 4x200 relay team turned in a 1:49.69 to place second. The team is ranked ninth in Class 3A.
Delta's 4x800 relay team was sixth with its time of 11:40.41.
