Wolverine indoor track team to Simplott games

Feb 13, 2014 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor

The track meet features athletes from across the western U.S.

The Riverton High School Wolverines are sending 11 indoor track athletes to the annual Simplot Games Friday and Saturday in Pocatello, Idaho.

The track meet features athletes from across the western United States.

The meet is held indoors at Idaho State University.

"It's fun because we get to see competition that we don't ever get to see during the year," RHS coach Tawn Gopp said. "The level of competition is higher. The arena and track are pretty neat in how they are set up."

Gopp is hoping a couple of his athletes can make the finals on Saturday.

Sean Watts is scheduled to be in the 60 meters. Shepp Campbell will go in the high jump.

Casey Savage is slated to be in the shot put for the Wolverines. Ashtyn Leisy will compete in the long jump.

"If you make the finals down there, then that is a big deal," Gopp said.

The Wolverines took a young squad to a meet in Laramie last Saturday at the University of Wyoming indoor track facility.

Haley Snell went 28-11 in the shot put to place fifth for the Wolverines for the highest finish.
