Delta senior John Ames took an early lead in the 1600m run at Saturday's Hotchkiss Invitational meet, and never looked back. In a highly competitive early-season race the senior pulled ahead of the pack in the first 200 meters and never relinquished the lead, winning the event in 4:55.71 -- a full four seconds ahead of second place.

Teammate Shad Lewis placed fourth in the 1600 with a time of 5:02.64.

The Delta boys scored 52 points to finish fifth at the 17-team meet. While Ames had the only gold-medal performance for the Panthers, they had several top-five finishes.

The 3200m relay team of Lewis, Hunter Goff, Andrew Toole and Ames outpaced all but Paonia to win silver with a time of 9:10.06.

Panthers mid-distance coach Kayley Archuleta said that Goff, a freshman, was thrown into the race at the last minute. "He did great," said Archuleta.

Ames also placed third in the 800m run with a personal record time of 2:08.47.

Junior Evan Baier finished fourth in triple jump with a mark of 37 feet. 0.5 inches, and teammate Kula Moo finished seventh (36-3.25) for two points in team scoring.

Kiril Ortega cleared 5 feet, 2 inches to place fifth in high jump competition.

Brandon Butler placed fourth in discus with a throw of 105-5; and Kyle Schotten placed seventh in shot put with a throw of 36-7.57.
