Chinook senior Zach Molyneaux gets ready to let go of the javelin during Wednesday's Cal Wearly Invitational track meet at the Havre Middle School Track. Molyneaux finished second in the javelin behind Havre High's Ryne Antley, while he won the 100-meter dash.

Swarms of track and field stars filled the Havre Middle School track Wednesday, and the talented pool of prep boys was as competitive as they come this early in the season.

The North Star Knights hosted the annual Cal Wearly track meet, and as usual, it took a good showing by individuals and teams to make their marks. Dutton took the No. 1 team spot with 57 points, followed by second-place Fort Benton with 53.5, and the third-place Havre Blue Ponies with 45. Rounding out the pack, Chinook was fourth with 44, followed by Box Elder with 43, Chester/J-I with 38, North Star with 21.5, Hays-Lodge Pole with eight, Turner with four, Rocky Boy with four, and Stanford/Geyser with two.

“There were a lot of good teams here,” North Star head coach Brian Campbell said. “So I really think this is a pretty good precursor to where teams will be at towards the end of the year.”

Havre had a good day, utilizing their older, and younger athletes.

In the throws, Kade Rismon placed fifth in the shot put with a toss of 42-03, and placed third in the javelin with a toss of 137-00. And Ryne Antley had a great toss of 151-04 to win the javelin. Mike Loftus placed sixth in the 200-meters with a time of 24.3, while Nate Rismon placed fourth in the 400-meters with a time of 57.5. But Nate Rismon also added a third-place finish in the triple jump (39-6), while two Ponies placed in the pole vault. Thomas Gruber earned a No. 1 finish after clearing 12-6, and Gunnar Aageson finished third after clearing 11-6.

“We looked around the track and we had kids all over the place competing hard in different events, that is still the goal,” Havre High head coach John Ita said. “And this boys team has a lot of talent interspersed all over, in our older kids and younger kids.”

And as good as Havre looked, the Sugarbeeters finished just one point behind the Ponies in the team standings. But the majority of the points came from standout senior Zach Molyneaux. Molyneaux took first in the 100 with a time of 11.3, but also finished second in the shot put (46-10), second in the discus (140-10), and second in the javelin (139-5). Travis Roth grabbed a third-place finish in the 800 with a time of 2:14.9, while Kyler Johnson grabbed a fourth-place finish in the 1600 with a time of 5:11.7.

Box Elder was also just one point behind Chinook in the team standings, making for a tight race. And the Bears were a dominant force in the distance races. Will Ketchum had as good of day as anybody. Ketchum took the 800 with a time of 2:13.0, the 1,600 with a time of 5:04.6, and the 3,200 with a time of 10:46.0. Shane Ketchum placed sixth in the 3,200 (11:25.5), while Brandon The Boy placed in the 1,600 and 3,200. The Boy was third in the 1,600 (5:09.8), and third in the 3,200 (10:59.4) while the 4x400 team also placed sixth with a time of 4:10.7.

Three Hawks also kept C/J-I near the top, as Steven May, Justin May, and Cody Ramberg looked good on the windy Wednesday. Steven May finished fifth in the 1,600 (5:15.1) and fifth in the 3,200 (11:16.0). And Ramberg finished third in the high jump (5-8), and fifth in the triple jump (38-8). Justin May had the better afternoon, finishing the 110 hurdles in fourth (18.3), the 300 hurdles in third (44.8), the long jump in second (19-6), and the triple jump in second (41-0).

North Star’s Quinn Spinler took fourth in the 300 hurdles (45.6) and fourth in the pole vault (10-6). And Jaxon Simonson took sixth in the shot put (39-10), while Matt Helmbrecht took sixth in the javelin (132-01). Cooper Spicher also finished first in the triple jump (41-3), while the 4x400 relay team also took fifth (4:08.5). Hays-Lodge Pole got a second-place finish from Codie Kirkaldie in the 3,200 (10.49.2), while Rocky Boy’s Tristan Belgrade finished fourth in the 3,200 (11.00.4). Lucas Reed also finished fourth in the triple jump (38-10) for Turner.

“The boys are going to impress some people this year I think,” Campbell said. “Especially if they continue to work hard. They will be able to compete at districts, and I think we have some athletes that will have what it takes to compete at divisionals and state also.”
