Laurel track and field headed to the Laurel Complex for their third track meet in seven days. It was their second “Laurel Invite” in those seven days as well. They competed against fellow class A school Fergus and quite a few class B and C schools including Joliet and Park City.

The Laurel track girls had a very good meet. They had at least one girl in the top three of all of the track events. Starting with the 100 meter, Paige O’Toole, Aspen Cotter and Taylor Noble placed third, fourth and fifth respectively. Cotter also placed second in the 200 and third in the high jump. In the 800, Grace Timm once again took first place, this time topping her PR with a time of 2:30.93. Following just behind, Lizzie Wisecup, Britnee Atkinson, and Kayla Parson came in second, third, and fifth.

In the 1600 meter run, Junior Paige Ventling placed first with a time of 6:19.76 and in the 3200 meter run, freshman Andria Mourich came in first with a time of 13:12.88. In the 300 meter hurdles, Morgan Maack placed second with a PR of 53.73. Both relay teams had great finishes; the 4x100 team placed second on the 4x400 relay team finished in first.

The Locomotive girls were also great in the field. Many girls were setting their PR’s left and right.

In the shot put, freshman Teigan Harper placed third with a PR throw of 31-08.50. Nikol Greer placed behind her with a season record throw of 31-05.0. 

In the discus, senior Paige O’Toole placed first with a PR throw of 144-08.50 feet. Not only was this is a PR, it was also a Laurel High School record for discus throw! Congrats to Paige!

In the javelin, Jessica Lefevre and O’Toole placed second and third. Gracey Willis had a nice go at the jumping events. She placed first in the long jump with a PR of 15-07.50 and placed second in the triple jump. Sophomore Taylor Karlin and junior Emma Rawhouser tied for second in the pole vault with Danae Filpula-Ankney just right behind them in fourth. Filpula-Ankney also came in second in the high jump.

The boys team also had some great times and measures. In the 100 meter dash, Juniors Erik Holstein and Chris Abell placed third and fourth. In the 400 meters, senior Ethan Doty took first place with a time of 55.92. In the 800 meter, once again Levi Taylor set his PR and took first place. This time his PR he set was 2:05.85.

In the 110m hurdles, Chris Abell placed first with a time of 16.17.

For the relay teams, just like the girls, one team placed first and one team placed second, those being the 4x100 and 4x400 meter teams respectively.

In the field, Ely Kraft set his PR in the discus en route to finishing first, with a throw of 151-10. Logan Kennedy took third in the javelin with Kraft taking sixth.

It was a great meet by the participants standards, a lot of personal and season records for a lot of the track team. They will look to improve on their times even more in their next meet. Their next meet will be Saturday, April 21 at the Gallatin Valley Invitiational at Belgrade High School. The first events start at 10 a.m.
