Havre track teams look strong in Livingston

The divisional track meet means the last opportunity to push kids into the Class A state meet, and the Havre High track and field teams had a good number of kids step up.

Competing in Livingston Friday and Saturday at the Central A divisional meet, the Blue Ponies were well-represented. And though neither team earned a team title, a lot of individual athletes have a lot to be proud of, with just the state meet remaining this season.

Belgrade has the numbers that make it very hard to contend with in the Class A ranks, and the Panthers made that very clear over the weekend as they swept the boys’ and girls team titles. The boys earned 207 points, and the girls earned 215. The Lewistown boys finished in a distant second with 115, and Livingston was third with 101. The Ponies were fourth with 83, and Browning was fifth with 15. In the girls’ field, Lewistown finished second with 129, while the Ponies earned a third-place finish with 92. Livingston was fourth with 72 and Browning was fifth with 12.

“We brought 29 athletes down, and only four of them didn’t qualify for state,” Havre High head coach Trevor VanCampen said. “But Belgrade is just unbelievable with their numbers. It seems like they don’t even have to take first place in an event, they could still win it by just the points they earn from second-, third- and fourth-place points. But we performed well, and the girls really stepped up with that third-place finish.

“Overall,” VanCampen added. “Everybody competed hard. The weather was somewhat of an issue for all five teams there, but for the most part, I thought everybody went out and competed at an exceptional level. I was very pleased with how our kids showed up as a team, they competed hard, and I think the results show that.”

The HHS boys crowned two individual champions, but, again, saw good production from all over the field.

Thurman Holdsclaw continued his dominance in the pole vault and captured the No. 1 spot after clearing 13-0. And Ryne Antley had a great outing as well, capturing the No. 1 spot in the javelin with a throw of 160-2. Holdsclaw also placed fourth in the triple jump, jumping just over 38 feet, as well as fourth in the 100 meters, running an 11.69.

Kade Rismon and Zach Plum also helped lead they way as they placed in multiple events. Rismon took third in the shot put, throwing 42-9, as well as fourth in the discus with a toss of 125-0 and sixth in the javelin with a throw of 137-11. Plum took third in the pole vault, clearing 12-0, while also placing fourth in the long jump, leaping 18-8. Freshman Charlie Christianson took second place in the high jump, clearing 5-8, while Thomas Gruber took second in the pole vault, clearing 12-0, while Marc Klimas took fourth in the 3,200 (10:36.02), and Gunnar Aageson took fifth in the pole vault (10-6). Both relays also placed. The short relay took second with a time of 48.32, and the long relay took fourth with a time of 4:05.69.

The HHS girls also had a handful of multiple placers to help lead their efforts.

Senior Katie Christianson placed in three events. Christianson was second in the 1,600 with a time of 5:41.78, second in the 3,200 with a time of 12:25.30, and fourth in the 800 with a time of 2:30.58. Martha Stocker placed in two events, including a No. 1 finish in the shot put, throwing 34-2, and a fourth-place finish in the discus, throwing 87-9. Lexi Olson finished as the No. 1 high jumper, the girls’ second individual champion, by clearing 5-0, but took fourth in the 100 with a time of 13.20. Haley Ohm also took fourth in the 3,200 with a time of 13:05.45, and fifth in the 1,600 with a time of 5:51.38, while Peyton Filius was sixth in the 400 with a time of 1:04.17, and second in the 800 with a time of 2:27.77.

Also placing for the Ponies were Rachel David, Megan Erickson, Larissa Price, Jenn Nordgulen, Neya Bischoff, and Skylar Vukasin. David took sixth in the 800 (2:31.13), Erickson took fifth in the 800 (2:30.73), Price took sixth in the 3,200 (13:24.95), Nordgulen took third in the triple jump (31-3), Bischoff took second in the javelin (99-5) and Vukasin took fifth in the high jump (4-6). The long relay team also took third (4:23.46), while the short relay took fourth (54.84).

“We got a few surprises,” VanCampen said. “We had five girls in the top eight in the 800 meters, so that was good to see. And with Ryne Antley in the javelin and Martha Stocker in the shot put stepping up, that was good to see, too. The way everybody got out to compete put a smile on our faces. But overall, we were really pleased, and like I said, all but four kids qualified for state, and that was big for this team.”

The top five individuals in each event advance to the Class A state track meet this weekend in Laurel.
