The Snowflake Meet on Thursday, March 29, opened up track season for 22 different teams, including Joliet and Columbus who both made impressive showings. Joliet came in fourth place in both boys (53) and girls points (36), while Columbus came in ninth in girls (22.5) and 13th in the boys (9). Scoring is based off of top five performances; 10 points to first place, eight points to second place, six to third place, two to fourth place, and one point to fifth place. Scoring may vary based on events or ties.

Joliet’s boys gained most of their points in the field events. Brett Robinson came in first place in the pole vault with a throw of 13 even and also placed third in the 100 meter dash. 

Ry Olson placed in three different field events, as well. He placed second in the high jump, third in the long jump, and fourth in the triple jump. Shay Robertus joined Olson in placing in some of those events, taking fourth in the long jump and sixth in the triple jump. Basketball star Taylor Rowlison also placed in the triple jump, taking fifth. Kendall Newton came in third place in the 800 meter run.

On top of these great individual performances, the Joliet 4x100 meter relay team also gained some points, coming in third.

Joliet’s girls also had a nice showing on Thursday. Their only points came from the field events, which were dominated by Joliet’ own Kallie Zinne. Zinne came in first in the high jump, first in the long jump, and second in the triple jump by just three inches.

Her teammates were also in the mix; Kala Bertolino placed fourth in the javelin throw and T6 in the pole vault. McKenna Bushman also gained some points, placing fifth in the long jump and the shot put. 

The Columbus boys track team only had two boys with points on Thursday. Michael Jacobson came in third in the 300 meter hurdles and Dylan Button took fourth in the boys high jumps.

The girls had double the boys, with four placing for points, but headlined by their 4x100 relay team which came in first place. As far as individual performances, the highest placer was RaiLeigh Strommen and she placed third place in the 400 meter dash. Her teammate Amber LeBrun was close behind her, taking fifth.

Brenna Rouane and Trista Teeters both tied in the high jump at four fee four inches, both taking the fifth place and gaining 1.5 points each. 

Lastly, Columbus had one more point-getter in Camryn Ault, who tied for fifth in the girls pole vault with a throw of seven.

Joliet’s next meet will be on April 6 in Laurel for the Roundup/Park City invitational at 10 a.m.
