Graham qualified automatically for the Class 4-A state meet with his performance in the long jump.

"That is a great accomplishment for Tyler so early in the year," said RHS co-head coach Tawn Gopp.

"The meet had good weather. There wasn't a lot of wind. He had good competition on a good track."

Withers finished first in the 100 meters in a time of 11.73.

"Seth got a late start in the 100," Gopp said. "He really turned it on at the end."

In the team standings, the RHS boys finished fourth (94.50 points).

"We had 36 total personal records for both boys and girls," Gopp said.

Powell won the meet (135.50), Cody came in second (121).

Kole Stewart placed second in the 100 meters, tying Sheridan's Mark Silcox in a time of 11.75.

Stewart added a second in the 400 meters (53.63).

"The 400 meters race wasn't down to the wire, but he was right on the guy that won it," Gopp said.

Withers collected a third (24.19) in the 200 meters, and Logan Hartbank was fourth (24.35).

Ian McDonald crossed the finish line third in the 3,200 meters (11:09.78).

"Ian almost took over a minute in his race," Gopp said. "He ran even splits. His last lap was his fastest. We have been working on his pacing."

Withers leaped to third-place in the long jump (19-7.75), and in the triple jump (39-9.75).

Riverton's Sheridan Smith finished second in the long jump (14-10.50). She was third in the triple jump (32-7.25).

"Sheridan had a great meet for us," RHS co-head coach Jorah Griffith said. "She scored 18 points individually. I expect her to get better as the season goes on."

Hannah Svilar ended second in the shot put (37-7) and in the discus (115-8).

Hannah Soll finished fifth in the shot put (36-6) and third in the discus (110-7).

Soll and Svilar qualified for the Class 4-A meet in the shot put.
