Rain and snow cloud track and field

Despite cold and rainy weather, Chadron State’s men’s 4×100-meter relay team won their event and several other athletes placed well at the Jack Christiansen Invitational at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo., Saturday.

“I felt cold, wet and miserable,” senior of Hay Springs, Neb., Kate Jungck said. “It snowed literally the entire time I was throwing javelin. It’s really hard to throw a personal record under those conditions but I should have done better to overcome them.”

The men’s 4×100-meter relay team with Keegan Parr, senior of North Platte,  Brandon Segelke, redshirt freshman of Sidney,  Phil Rivera, sophomore of Apple Valley, Calif., and Jacob Gruver, senior of Cheyenne, Wyo., recorded a 41.06 second time, which was more than one second faster than Colorado State’s team.

Several relay runners also had runner-up finishes.

Gruver ran the 100 meter dash in 10.87 seconds while Rivera ran the 200 for the first time this spring in 21.72.

Another runner-up finish came from senior Jessica Horsley, of Basin, Wyo., in the women’s hammer throw marking 186-feet 1-inch.

Horsley, who was named Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Women’s Field Athlete of the Week for the second consecutive week, also captured fifth place in the shot put with a provisional mark of 44-feet 4.25-inches.

“It was a bit of a surprise,” Horsely said, “I’m finally starting to put things together to get some big results and hopefully the best is yet to come.”

Sophomore, Monique Fair, of Denver, Colo., took fourth in the 100-meter dash, finishing in 12.18 seconds.

Meghan Finney, sophomore of Almont, Colo., placed in the top ten of the 400-meter dash finishing in under a minute.

Other women’s highlights included Ashley Fanelli, sophomore of Arvada, Colo., who placed third in the triple jump with a 38-4 mark.

Jazmyn Webster, freshman of Cheyenne, Wyo., placed fourth in the high jump at 5-feet 4.5-inches.

Sadie Waugh, sophomore of Paxton,  placed fifth sailing the discus 148-feet 5-inches.

Jungck placed seventh throwing the javelin 112-feet 7-inches and Kaelie Jelden, sophomore of Greeley, Colo., placed eighth in the pole vault marking 10-feet 10.25-inches.

Fanelli also had a top ten mark in the high jump at 5-feet 1.25-inches.

The Eagles compete next weekend at the Colorado Mines Quad in Golden, Colo. The RMAC Outdoor Championships are May 8-10 in Golden, Colo.

“I think that this will be our best RMAC yet,” Jungck said. “The girls are ranked number one, so I’d like to see us finish first.”
