County track performers grab medals in Lovell meet

Apr 21, 2013 - By Randy Tucker, Sports Writer

There were a lot of track meets across the Cowboy State Saturday. The Lovell Invitational featured the two best teams in Class 2-A and 3-A this seasons in the Lovell and Powell Boys. Lovell won its home meet, edging Powell 127 to 111 for the crown.

On the girls side, a powerhouse Thermopolis team pulled away from Lovell and Powell for the title.

Western Heritage Lutheran Academy of Riverton competed well in the girls division placing fifth overall behind strong performances from freshman Anastasia Strong and sophomore Dani Havercamp. Havercamp won the 300-meter hurdles in 51.18, posting the best time this season in Class 1-A in the process. She added a fourth in the 100. Strong was third in the high jump and the 100 and finished fifth in the 200-meter dash.

Shoshoni senior Kolbi Pickinpaugh posted career bests while winning the 100-meter dash and the 100-meter hurdles. She won the 100 in 12.90 and took the hurdle crown with a 16.90 time.

Shoshoni also won the 4x800-meter relay.

The boys team was paced by freshman Triston Parrish with a win in the 400-meter dash.

Four Wranglers placed in the 800-meter run, paced by J.J. Crichton in third. Conner Wilkerson was fifth, Casey Lagois sixth and JD Jaeger eighth.

There weren't many teams big enough to field relays, but Shoshoni won the 4x800-meter and placed second in the 4x400-meter relay.

Most Fremont County teams will compete at the Bobcat Invitational in Thermopolis next Friday.
