West Marshall boys win six times at Nevada Cub Relays

NEVADA – The West Marshall track and field team won five events Tuesday during the Nevada Cub Relays, but the Trojans didn’t have enough placings in the middle and that resulted in a fourth-place finish overall.

Nick Juel and Jake Thompson grabbed wins in the long jump and high jump, respectively, and West Marshall also got a 100-meter dash win from Duncan Ferch, a win by Nathan Bradley in the 3,200 meters and gold-medal performances in the 4×200 and distance medley relays.

Ferch hit the tape in 11.78 seconds, while his teammate Zack Tichy was third at 12.41.

That ended up being the best event of the day for the Trojans but Bradley and Austin Grimm were 1-4 in the two mile. Bradley hit the line in 10:50.78, while Grimm came across in 11:41.57.

Ferch also was a part of both winning relay teams. The 4×200 also included Juel, Thompson and Elijah Streeter as that foursome hit the tape in 1:36.42. The distance medley team featured Ferch, Streeter, Sheer and Bradley and that group was clocked at 3:59.41.

Juel’s winning mark in the long jump was 17 feet, 5 inches, while Thompson hit 5-4 in the high jump.

The other top-three performance came from the 4×800 relay team and that foursome, which included Jake Goecke, Alex Billman, Nathan Millizer and Isaac Trujllio, finished in 10:46.75.

Blake Young also was fourth in the 200 with a time of 25.39 and the 4×100 team of Tichy, Daniel Kelley, Lucas Pelfrey and Young came across in fourth with a time of 51.75.

Bondurant-Farrar won the team title with 234.5 points. Iowa Falls-Alden was second at 2:13.5 and Colo-NESCO (159) edged out West Marshall (153) for third. Northeast Hamilton was fifth with 117 points.

The Trojans will take a week off and not compete again until they head to Jewell on April 10. That meet will be hosted by South Hamilton.

Royals take third

The Royals never topped the podium but used a quintet of runner-up finishes to claim third in the field with 159 points at Nevada Tuesday.

Christian Reischauer crossed the line in 12.15 to earn second in the 100 meters, Steven Cutler covered the 1600 in 5:06.98 and Christian Montgomery also grabbed silver with a leap of 17 feet, 2 3/4 inches in the long jump.

Colo-NESCO also took second in the shuttle hurdle relay and sprint medley. The shuttle hurdle contingent included Brady Stoeffler, Caleb Vaughn, Clayton Bryan and Noah Gibbons, which clocked a time of 1:09.49. Taylor Hill teamed with Bryan, Reischauer and Cutler for a time of 4:07.24 in the sprint medley.

Hill joined Gibbons, Bryan and Reischauer for third in the 4×200 (1:37.72), while the same quartet followed suit in the 4×100 (47.27).

Stoeffler also garnered bronze in the 110 hurdles (20.26) as did Cutler in the high jump (5-4).

Stoeffler, Montgomery, Garret Tiarks and Kevin Hapes concluded the meet with a fourth-place finish in the 4×400 (4:14.99).

The Royals return to competition on April 10 at South Hamilton.
