Track team splits for Iowa and Spearfish meets

Even though they were miles apart, the Chadron State College track athletes finished well as a whole. Eagles participants succeeded in both the Rock and Jock Open in Spearfish, S.D. and the Iowa State Classic in Ames, Iowa.

The Iowa State Classic meet took the top 10 competitors from each event. The rest of the competitors participated in the Rock and Jock Open. Head coach Ryan Baily was impressed with his team’s performance in Iowa.

“We definitely had some highlights in a hard meet at Iowa,” said Baily.

At Black Hills State, Eagles freshman Justin Melton of Douglas, Wyo., scrambled for a win in the 60-meter dash with a time of 7.05 seconds against Montana State University-Billings’ Shea Stein, sophomore of Nashua, Mont., who finished second with a time of 7.14. The women’s 4×400 relay team also won its event with a time of 4:20.87, three seconds ahead of second place.

In the field events, Eagles sophomore Alex Alderman of Rapid City, S.D., claimed second in the weight throw with a distance of 46’.

High jump also became a highlight of the meet when Eagles sophomore Jazmyn Webster of Cheyenne, Wyo., cleared 5’8”.

Moving east, Chadron competitors captured two school records at the Iowa State Classic. Cody Hunt, senior of Lingle, Wyo., threw shot for a distance of 61’, 1 and ½”, to clear his previous record by one quarter-inch. The men’s 4×400 team, consisting of senior Lincoln Proud of Pinedale, Wyo.; redshirt freshman Frederick Culp of Mililani, Hawaii; redshirt freshman Jazz Bozner of Rock Springs, Wyo.; and junior Phil Rivera of Apple Valley, Calif., also blazed past a school record that has stood since 2006, clocking a time of 3:17.53.

Chadron is preparing for the upcoming weekend when they head to Lincoln for the Nebraska Tune-Up meet on Friday and back to Spearfish for the Black Hills Open on Saturday.
