Hunter Jordan was busy this past weekend.
The Cedaredge High School senior became the first boy’s track athlete in school history to sweep the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes during the Multi-League Championship Meet in Rifle.
On top of all that, he ran the anchor leg of the Bruins’ league-champion 4x400 relay team.
“He really stepped up for the team,” Cedaredge coach Kirby Henderson said.
Jodan’s big-time performance was one of many for the Bruins as they won both the boys and girls team titles for the 2A/1A Western Slope League.
Jessie Black was victorious in the 800 and 1600, while Megan Jenkins cruised to wins in both hurdle events. Kylee Terry won the 100 and 200, and also ran the anchor leg of the 4 x 200 relay. The team of Jenkins, Bailey Nelson, Hailey Hayes-Pursley and Terry turned in a time of 1 minute, 46.63 seconds, the team’s fastest of the season. Paige McGovern, Terry, Black and Jenkins easily won the 4x400, their time of 4:10.99 was almost 20 seconds faster than the second-place finisher.
On the boys side, Logan Tullis swept the hurdles events. Along with Jordan, he bookended the championship-winning 4x400 relay team, joining Brysen Harris and Kyler Parker on the podium.
“More than anything, any individual performances, this whole team showed heart,” Henderson said. “They all competed in multiple events over a long meet to help the team earn these championships.”
The Bruins have two more regular-season meets before they head to Lakewood to contend for a state championship. On Friday, they’ll battle at the Olathe Invitational. The next day, they’ll head to Grand Junction for the Dennis Teeters Tiger Invite at Stocker Stadium.
“They’re going to fine tune some things at a couple meets this week,” Henderson said. “Then we’ll get ready for the state meet.”
