Polson boys, girls tops at Lake County meet

Lake County Leader | May 11, 2021 3:00 PM

RONAN — Familiar friends and foes got after it with local pride on the line at the annual Lake County Track Meet on Thursday at Ronan High School.

When the dust settled, Polson won the girls team title fairly handily and the boys just beat out Ronan 138-132 for team honors.

Polson won just a few events outright, but finished strong across the board. Lucas Targerson won the boys 100 meters with a personal-best time of 11.48 seconds, just beating out Mission sprinters Charles Adams (11.56) and Layne Spidel (11.58).

Polson’s Jarrett Wilson finished second in the 200 behind Spidel (23.28). Wilson won the 110 meter hurdles by nearly 3 seconds, however, with a personal-best time of 16.69 seconds.

The Pirates’ Ryan Dupuis and David Bjorge finished 1-2 in the 3200, with teammate Kai Clifford coming in fourth.

Lady Pirates Ashtyn Wagner (1:07.51) and Hannah Simpson (1:09.34) finished 1-2 in the 400, and teammates Halle Heninger (2:43.06) and Taleah Hernandez (2:52.75) completed the same feat in the 800.

Host-team Ronan excelled in the field events, particularly the boys, which saw first-place finishes from Dylan Kelch in the shot put, and Payton Cates in the high jump and discus, where teammate Jesse Richey finished second.

Daniel Kelsch won the javelin by 7 feet with a throw of 143-5, and Zarec Couture swept the long jump and triple jump for the Chiefs. Caleb Chef set a personal record of 9-6 in the pole vault to finish second.

Ronan’s Rylie Lindquist scored a trifecta with wins in the girls javelin, shot put and discus.

Charlo standout Carlee Fryberger competed in three events — the 100, 200 and triple jump — and won them all, including a season-best mark of 34-11.5 in the triple jump.

Charlo also got a second-place finish from Braydon Zempel in the boys triple jump, a second in the girls discus from Aida Cote and a second in the girls javelin from Kyla Tomlin.

Apart from Spidel’s win in the 200, the Mission team also got a win from Andrew Rush in the 800 with a personal record of 2:05.10, good enough for a 10-second victory.

Dustin Mitchell finished second in the 300 hurdles and third in the 110-meter hurdles for the Bulldogs. Charles Adams finished third in both the long jump and the triple jump.

Mission’s Sydney Brander finished second in the high jump with a mark of 4-8, behind Ronan’s Lindsey Brooks (5-0), and won the long jump at 16-7. She also finished third in the triple jump.

Arlee’s Sage Nicolai won the 400 with a time of 56.30 and finished third in the 800. RJ Knoll won the boys pole vault for the Warriors.

Adalyn Jacobson of Arlee finished second behind Fryberger in both the 100 and 200, setting personal-best marks in both events.
