Fullerton's third in high jump tops for county at track classic

Apr 30, 2013 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor

Riverton High School bosted a small meet Tuesday afternoon and evening at Wolverine Track.

Five Fremont County athletes placed in different events Friday at the annual Wyoming Track Classic in Casper at Harry Geldien Stadium.

Riverton High School Wolverines at the meet were Brandon Fullerton, Lane Savage and Ashtyn Leisy.

Fullerton paced RHS with a third-place finish in the high jump.

Shoshoni High School distance runner Olivia Thompson competed in the 1,600-meter run, and teammate Tasha Maddock participated in the 800 meters.

The track classic invites the top time or distance performers from all Wyoming classifications.

"Overall, I was very proud of how well our athletes competed at the classic," RHS co-head coach Jorah Griffith said. "I was also impressed with our athletes' composure and sportsmanship.

Each individual represented our track team and school very well."

RHS hosted the Riverton Twilight on Tuesday afternoon at Wolverine Track. Savage, Wyatt Meyer and Seth Quayle will be honored on Senior Night.

The Wolverines, Lander, Shoshoni, Western Heritage Lutheran Academy, Worland and Wyoming Indian made up the field.

Fullerton entered the track classic with the eighth-best mark in the high jump and the sophomore finished with a height 6-0. Tanner Fischer from Kelly Walsh won the title at 6-2. Jackson's Gatlin Topp placed second (6-0), with fewer misses than Fullerton.

"I was happy with Brandon's effort in the high jump," Griffith said. "It was impressive to see him get third."

Savage ended fifth in the shot put with a throw of 45-9. Powell's Garrett Lynch captured the title in 54-2.5. His teammate Vince Sleep came in second at 51-4.5. Natrona's Ben Pieper finished third (47-10).

"Lane competed well," Griffith said. "He had the second-best mark for 4-A throwers. That should give him good confidence going into regionals and state, knowing that he will be right in the thick of it come postseason."

Leisy finished sixth in the long jump at 16-2.5.

Lyman's Ann Wingeleth was first at 18-9.

"I felt that Ashtyn really stepped up her consistency in the long jump, getting quality marks on each attempt and working to better each jump," Griffith said.
