GLASGOW The Chinook track team was in Glasgow this weekend for the District 2B meet. The Sugarbeeters ended the day of competition with seven girls qualified for North-East B Divisional along with six boys. Only the top five placers qualified for the divisional May 22.
For the Beeter girls team, Erin Acra took home the only gold as she won the 3200-meter run with a time of 12 minutes 42.31 seconds. Acra also took second in the 1600 with a 5:54.22.
Lindsey Buhmann came in second in the 400, recording a 1:02.22. Buhmann was fourth in the 100 with a :13.81 and sixth in the 200.
Caroline Moores qualified by taking third in the 100 with a time of 13.75 and fourth in the 200 with a :28.57.
Jennifer Olsen finished fifth in the 400 with a 1:04.76. In the 800, it was Jacy Sheppard who came in fourth with a mark of 2:46.22.
Both girls relay teams took fourth. In the 400 relay, the Sugarbeeters recorded a :54.34 and a 4:32.47 in the 1600. Katie Malsam, who has been fighting an injury, finished six in both the discus and javelin. In the discus, she threw 89 feet and 6 inches. In the javelin, she tossed a 96-9.
On the boys side, Mason Roseberry took second in the 800 with a time of 2:09.61. Roseberry also took fifth in the 400 with a 54.63. Mike Maddox finished fourth in both the 200 and 400 with times of 24.50 and 53.62, respectively. Jimmy Steyee finished sixth in the 200 with a 25.41.
Both the 400 relay and 1600 relay qualified for the boys team. In the 400, the Beeters took fifth with a time of 49.41 and finished fourth in the 1600 with a 3:41.50.
Chinook coach Don Olsen said that most of the athletes had good days against an outstanding field in 2B. Olsen said Acra ran very well in 1600 and 3200 and others also ran well. Olsen also said that Roseberry turned in a great race in the 800.
As far as divisionals, Olsen said the athletes are looking forward to the meet. The relay teams are right on the bubble with their times, but should be competitive with the 1B teams.
It will be a good meet, with some real dog fights, Olsen said.
The divisional track meet will take place in Glasgow Saturday, May 22. The Beeters are familiar with the track there and that will not hurt them at all.
