April 17, 2016
Steamboat Springs — The Soroco High School track and field team didn’t let the return of Old Man Winter bother them Saturday at the Glenwood Springs Demon Invitational, in which numerous athletes set personal records and two school records fell.
Leading the charge was sophomore Ben Kelley, who broke the school record in the boys 1,600-meter race, taking second in four minutes, 33.57 seconds. He also broke his own school record in the 3,200-meter race, set last season, by taking second Saturday with a time of 10:09.59.
The Soroco girls were strong across the board, recording numerous top-five finishes. Sophomore Mattie Rossi was second in the 100-meter hurdles (16.22 seconds), as well as sixth in the long jump. Freshman Chloe Veilleux was third in the girls 1,600-meter race (5:48.55), a personal best. She also took 10th in the 100-meter hurdles and eighth in the 300-meter hurdles. Senior Kali Constine was 10th in the 300-meter hurdles.
The girls 800-meter relay team was third in 1:54.35.
“It was a good day for us,” Soroco coach David Bruner said. “I was really pleased with the effort, especially in the conditions. They weren't terrible conditions, but they weren't the best conditions, either, so I was really pleased with the way the kids performed.”
The girls were also strong in the field events. Kali Constine was third in the pole vault and ninth in the high jump. Junior Cassie Constine was third in the triple jump, and senior Briana Peterson fifth in the shot put.
