Bluejay track teams claim pair of second places

The Sabetha High School boys’ and girls’ track teams took home a dual of second place titles at the Holton Invitational Tuesday, April 18. The boys’ team and girls’ teams captured second place behind Abilene with scores of 124.50 and 139, respectively.

“Our kids completed well in a meet where we were the smallest of the six schools, and placing second in both boys’ and girls’ divisions was a nice reward for their team effort,” said Head Coach Dave Remmers. “We stress to them each week to go into each meet competing against themselves, trying to improve on their season best and overall, they continue to improve.”

Boys

For the boys, sophomore Mason Engelken swept the hurdle competitions, winning both the 110-meter and 300-meter. Engelken tallied his best time of the season in the 300-meter competition.

In other events, sophomore Braeden Cox took first in the high jump, and senior Christian Meyer claimed first in pole vault. The 4×800-meter relay team comprised of senior Keegan Cox, sophomores Henry Glynn and B. Cox, and freshman Micah Romines also finished first.

Freshman Andrew Frazee took second behind Engelken in the 110-meter hurdle competition with his best time this season. Also earning second place in their events were K. Cox in the 3200-meter run and junior Kyle Grimm in the discus throw, with his best throw of the season.
