Cardinal track places first at Cimarron

CIMARRON – Hoisington Cardinal Xavier Robinson earned three gold medals and a silver medal as the Cardinal boys captured first place at the Cimarron Track Invitational with 145 points.  

Robinson won the 200 (23.66), long jump (21-0) and triple jump (42-33/4) and ran with the runner-up 400-meter relay (46.05) with Wyatt Pedigo, Dylan Richards and Mason Haxton.

Other Hoisington first-place finishers were Wyatt Pedigo, shot put (44-11) and Mason Haxton, pole vault (11-6). Dayne Yott placed runner-up in the 1,600 (5:15.75).

“This is the first time the boys have won the Cimarron meet,” said Hoisington coach Dan Schmidt. “I was proud of both teams. We had great performances from different individuals. This group of three athletes have been a coaches dream throughout their tenure in track at Hoisington to coach and watch. I can’t wait to see how their season unfolds moving forward.  I was proud of our three seniors. 

Hoisington sophomore Suzanna Schneider swept the long jump (15-0), 100 (13.34), 200 (28.4) and ran a leg on the first-place 400-meter relay (54.81) with Maleigha Schmidt, Alyx Lamatsch and Samantha Colson.

“Suzanna was super on the day,” Schmidt said.

Hoisington’s Maleigha Schmidt broke the Cimarron pole vault meet record (10-6). Schmidt ran with the first-place 400-meter relay and fourth with the 1,600-meter relay. 

Jessi Kindscher was pole vault runner-up and ran legs on the 1,600-meter relay and 3,200-meter relay.

Ellinwood’s Ashtin Klepper won the 1,600 (5:59.65) and placed second in the 800 (2:37.62). Erin Hammeke won the 3,200 (13:13.94) and finished second in the 1,600 (6;00.59). Maddy Ward won the shot put (36-33/4) and placed runner-up in the discus (100-0). LaTaja Gray placed second in the 200 (29.16).
