  • Ten schools gathered at Kingman’s track on Tuesday. The Pratt High girls took second with 101 points, being nipped by host Kingman with 104. The Lady Eagles captured the evening’s final event, the 4x400 relay, to put them over the top. Pratt’s boys had a nice showing as well, using their depth to pile up 88 points— good for 3rd behind meet champion Rose Hill (127).
    The boys’ lone gold medal of the day came in the 4x400 relay. Hunter Kaufman, Samson Kohman, Jacob Caldwell and Ryan Landry combined for a 3:42.
    “Derek Barnard (3rd 40-8.5) and Shawn Ramos (5th 40-1.5) had good days in the triple jump,” head coach Derek Liggett mentioned. “They both got over 40’ and set new PRs.”
    Joseph Loomis placed in both distance events: 1600m 4th 4:50 and 3200m 3rd 11:07. “Joseph ran a great mile and set a new PR there by a significant amount,” Liggett remarked. Zach Will also placed in the distances: 1600m 6th 5:12 and 3200m 4th 11:18.
    Nick Koler sprinted his way to two individual medals: 100m 3rd 12.2 and 200m 2nd 24.41. Koler also joined with Hunter Kaufman, Shawn Ramos and Derek Barnard for a bronze medal (46.77) in the 4x100 relay.
    In field events, thrower Jerod Theis scored in three events: Shot 3rd 40-1.5; Discus 4th 85-2; Javelin 6th 127-1. Johnathon Hurt took 4th in high jump (5-4.)
    The Greenback middle-distance crew contributed as well. 400m Ryan Landry 2nd 54.22; Samson Kohman 5th 55.92; and 800m Chance Reh 2nd 2:12; Josh Ash 3rd 2:13.
    Paige Bailey was the top point-getter for Lady Green, accounting for 22 points in the 100m (2nd 13.62), 200m (3rd 28.31) and long jump (2nd 15-11.75).
    Distance specialist Halle Helfrich took home a pair of gold medals in the 1600m (5:39) and the 3200m (12:03). “Halle ran the first 2-mile of her career and looked great doing it,” Liggett observed. “There are only a handful of girls each year in 4A that break 12:00 (only 3 have done it so far this year) and she was right there (12:03) in a race where she was by herself, so that is very encouraging.”
    Thrower Jenson Maydew got 1st in shot (41-3.75) and 2nd in discus (104-9). “Jenson had a solid day in shot with multiple throws over 40',” Coach Liggett mentioned. “She is currently ranked 5th in the state (out of all classes). Regretfully, 6 of the top 7 girls in the entire state are in 4A so it is a tough road ahead, but she is very determined.”
    Maydew’s throwing partners Samaria Kohman (2nd shot 34-5.25 and 3rd discus 104-6) and Kayla Baer (5th shot 30-9.5) also got points for the Lady Frogs.
    Page 2 of 2 - Horizontal jumper Jaci Kolm saw her first action of the season, winning the triple jump (32-11) and taking 6th in long jump (13-10.5). “Jaci got her first meet in and looks to be starting out well,” Coach Liggett said. “It took her a few times to get on her mark in the triple, but she ended up with a jump around 33' which is very solid for a first outing.”
    Pole vaulters Chloe Cannata (2nd 9-0) and Morgan Strong (3rd 8-6) rounded out the scoring for the PHS girls. “Both the girls in PV are continuing to make good progress,” Liggett added.
