BROKEN BOW -- Litchfield’s Hope Downer and Tyler Snow put together two of the top performances in the Anselmo-Merna Quad in Broken Bow last Wednesday. Downer was the event champion in the triple jump, 300 meter hurdles and was on the winning 4x100 relay team. Downer fell five-tenths of a second shy of her fourth gold medal in the 100 meter hurdles when Anselmo-Merna’s Paige Olney beat her to the finish line. Snow was also a three event champion for the Trojans. Snow won the long jump, 100 meter dash and ran the first leg on Litchfield’s winning 4x100 meter relay. Snow’s fourth medal came in the triple jump where he placed third while his younger brother, Tanner, won the event.
The Trojans also won the boys 3200 meter relay and crowned six other event champions. Bridgette Janssen won the girls 100 meter dash outstretching teammate Alivia Wardyn who got second. Wardy turned the tables in the 200 meter dash beating Janssen to the finish line by a tenth of a second. Adam Kucera won the shot put, Tyson Howard won discus, Sam Reynolds won the 200 meter dash and Jade Janssen was the champion of the 1600 meter run in the boys events.
Anselmo-Merna won five more gold medals with Joseph Christen winning the 100 and 300 meter hurdles while Ryan Halouska won the high jump. In the girls field events, Jessi Burnett won the shot put and Kassie Russell won the long jump.
The Arcadia Huskies showed their strength in the distance events and won 11 event golds. The Arcadia boys won the 4x400 meter relay and Michael Chelewski won the 400 and 800 meter runs. The Arcadia girls won the 4x400 and 4x800 meter relays. Individually, Shayla Trotter won the 400 and 800 meter runs while Taylor Ritz won the 1600 and 3200 meter runs. In the field events, Hollie O’Brien was the champion in discus and Demi Dorsey earned the championship in high jump.
With a full week of track meets, due to weather delayed make-ups, the South Loup Bobcats competed in the A-M Quad with their junior varsity squad. Ryan Moninger was the champion of the boys 3200 meter run and placed second in the 1600 meter.
