Weather shortens Bobcat Invite Friday

Apr 29, 2012 - Staff

The Bobcat Invite at Hot Springs County High School in Thermopolis has a reputation as the meet with the most-reliable weather of any in northwest Wyoming.

That tradition was interrupted late Friday afternoon in the face of a mix of rain and sleet that cancelled the meet after just a single running even and only three field events were completed.

Only the 3200-meter run was concluded on the track. In spite of the poor conditions, the boys event saw five runners break the 11 minute mark in the event.

Lovell's Colin MacArthur won the even in a strong time of 10:12, followed by Wyoming Indian's Wilson Clifford in second. Shoshoni sophomore Lawry Lindblad crossed in fifth with a time of 10:56.

Anne Brinegar of Cody won the girls race with Shoshoni freshman Olivia Thompson posting her best time of the year in 12:23.34.

Teams return to Thermopolis this Friday or compete at the Shane Brock Invite in Lander next Saturday.
