Teton Track & Field traveled to the Aberdeen Invitational last week for a short-lived meet.
About midway through, all events were canceled due to inhospitable weather. Despite the conditions, Teton managed to compete in several events and a handful of athletes secured a personal best time. Seniors Taryn Paradis and Jeremiah Otto placed second in their events for the first time this season. Paradis was edged out in the triple jump, but gave an impressive leap of 33-09. Otto had a strong lead in the mens 400m, but was chased down to the wire by Marsh Valley’s Troy Wissenbach for a dramatic upset. Ricardo Arellano Bocardo ran a personal best in the same event with a time of 55.49
The women’s 3200 runners ran their best races of the season led by freshman Sara Bailey. Summer Quinlan, Kaitlyn Foster, and Mackenzie Lee secured their fastest times in the event. Lance Safiran also ran a personal best on the men’s side with 11:16. CG Woiwode ran a personal best in the mens 800m at 2:17 and John Woiwode jumped his farthest in the Long Jump at a length of 18.09.
Teton traveled to Star Valley High School yesterday for the Dave Draney meet. They’re taking team photos today and will have some down-time before their next meet in Madison and the Tiger Grizz invitational in Idaho Falls next weekend.
“We’re just grinding through the middle portion of the season,” said Head Coach Jacob Zarpentine. “We’re trying to prevent injuries and keep the kids fresh for districts in three weeks.”
