The Tiger Track & Field team competed at the Chadron State High School Invitational last Saturday. The meet was held at the indoor facility (PAC) on the campus of Chadron State College. The Tigers came away with two firsts. Individually, Martin Jergenson won the Shot Put with a throw of 40’8”. The 4 X 160 Meter Relay team of Dakota Clark, Kolby Eddy, Logan Lamar and Grady Penfield ran 1:29.71 to gather in the other first place for the Tigers. Throwing coach Ron Nelson commented that “It has been a few years since we had a boy thrower place at Chadron. Martin had a very good day and looking forward to see how he progresses throughout the season. He has a lot of potential.”
“The jumping crew of Dakota Clark, Kolby Eddy, Travis Smith, Logan Lamar and Adam Kraft had a great day in the Long Jump” according to Coach Zowada. Dakota and Kolby tied for 2nd place, jumping 17’11”; Travis and Logan tied for 7th place jumping 17’ and Adam Kraft had a career best leap of 16’ 7”. Adam’s performance was three feet better than his effort at Chadron last year. Travis Smith also gathered in 2nd place finishes in the Triple Jump (36’ 3”) and High Jump (5’10). He also placed 3rd in the 55 Meter Dash (7.18). “It was reallyl nice to see Travis join the team this year. He has not been in track for a few years, and if his performances at Chadron is any indication, he will add the depth we need on our team for us to be competitive as a team” commented Coach Zowada.
