Routt County track and field athletes brush off the dust at Moffat County meet

CRAIG — Soroco High School sophomore Shelby Geiger is in her first year of high school track and already has a lot of responsibility. In her first meet at the high school level, she was put in the anchor or final leg of both sprint relay races, the 4×200 and the 4×100. The Rams won the 4×100 with a time of 55.11 seconds.

“I think it’s a great experience for me, especially since I’m trying to run college track right now,” Geiger said. “It’s been a challenge, but it’s fun and good for me.”

Geiger already knows she wants to run track in college. After losing a year of high school experience, she’s making the most of every race. She helped the Rams finish second in the 4×200 with a time of 1:56. They did that without the help of junior speedster Kayedence Bruner, too.



Rose Karrow won the 800-meter race and took third in the 1,600 while placing eighth in high jump.

Additionally, Chase Delamater finished sixth in shot put.



“It was great. I was really pleased,” said head coach David Bruner. “I had talked about Lexi and Larhae, two of my freshmen, and they did exactly what I thought they would do.”

Steamboat Springs

Steamboat Springs High School senior Thomas Lewer is not a 200 runner, but in the first meet of the season, he opted to run his second-ever 200-meter race. After crossing the line in third, he told his coach he would definitely consider running it again.

“All I think about — I watch this video about Michael Johnson every once in a while, and it’s controlled fury through the turn and complete power through the straight,” Lewer said. “That’s what I tried to do. I tried to get out fast, work it pretty good and get even faster on the straight. The tailwind helped carry me and I got a big (personal record).”

Lewer finished the 200 in 23.94 seconds. He was one of the most successful Sailor track athletes at Friday’s meet. He finished second in the 400 as well, followed by teammate Bowden Tumminello, but timing didn’t record his time.

“I felt great,” he said. “I felt like I had even more in the tank too.”

Steamboat used Friday’s meet as a warm up for Saturday’s meet, leaving top performers and A relay combinations out. That allowed newcomers to shine and explore their interests.

Chris Morris and Josh Hamilton took second and third in the 100 and Jaydon Fryer won the 800.

Senior Aliyah Reimer had an incredible afternoon as well, taking first in the 300-meter hurdles and second in the 200-meter dash.

“We had a mixture of brand new athletes that were here today and even sophomores that didn’t get to compete as freshman,” head coach Lisa Renee Tumminello said. “One of the coaches made a comment that it’s like we have two classes of freshmen when it comes to track and field.”

Hayden

In the first meet back in two years, Hayden High School senior Keaton Knez couldn’t help but have high expectations. He’s coming off a personal-best cross country season and skipped playing basketball to focus on running.

“We’ve been waiting for this moment, obviously,” he said. “We’ve been waiting for the sunny days that you can hang out with your friends and chat it up. We’ve been waiting for the team dinners and all those fun things that come with varsity sports. I wish we didn’t have to wait so long, but it’s been worth the wait.”

Knez said he was a little disappointed with the day, particularly the relays, which made some errors, but overall he was just happy to be there. Individually, he finished third in the 800.

“It’s two years since we ran, so I can’t complain,” he said. “But (there were) a couple hiccups around our relays and stuff we got to reevaluate on, but we’re going to catch up to where we think we should be.”

Isabella Simones finished second in the 100-meter race with a time of 13.78. Kale Johnson took second in the 1,600.
