Wilson’s Marcus Denham won the boys’ shot put event with a 44’ 8” throw at the Barton County Community College High School track meet Friday in Great Bend.
Central Plains’ Taylor Rolfs won the 200-meter dash with a time of 27.42 as both USD 112 schools competed at the eight-team meet on the BCCC campus. The Central Plains girls placed fifth with 58 points and the Lady Dragons placed eighth with 22. The St. John-Hudson girls’ team won the meet with 110 points.
On the boys’ side, Wilson placed sixth with 33 points and Central Plains placed seventh with 28. Powerful Phillipsburg ran away with the meet, scoring 168 points to get the win.
It was almost perfect weather for a track meet, with mild temperatures and a slight breeze from the west, a far contrast to last season’s event which was more akin to duck hunting weather. The BCCC track meet replaced the Claflin Invitational, which was one of the last meets in north central Kansas to be held on a cinder track. The Oilers hosted the meet, with a lot of familiar faces working the events and concession stands.
“The track and field team is showing improvement in several areas,” said head Dragon track coach tony Brokes. “As the season progresses, one would expect increased production from the entire team, consistency in performance and the desire to prepare for the NPL meet and the upcoming KSHSAA regional meet.”
“I’m proud of all of the kids that competed. It was a great day to compete and several of our kids set personal bests,” said head Oilers track coach Dustin Robison. “We’re getting closer to seeing where each of the kids are setting, with the quickly approaching regional track meet. At this point in the season, we can see the hard work paying off.”
The Dragons and Oilers competed at the Tescott Invitational Tuesday in Tescott. Results were not available at press time. Wilson will compete at the Thompson Relays at 3 p.m. Friday, in Lincoln.
Central Plains will compete at 4 p.m. Friday in Ellinwood.
