Pony power on their track

Havre High's Peyton Filius races in the 1,600 meters against several Lewistown runners at Saturday's triangular meet at the Havre Middle School Track. Filius won the event as the Pony boys and girls competed against Lewistown and Malta.

Hosting yet another cold and windy track meet on the Hi-Line, both the Havre High boys and girls track and field teams performed at a high level over the weekend.

The Central A Blue Ponies hosted a triangular meet with Lewistown and Malta at the Havre Middle School track on Saturday. And competing on their home turf, the HHS boys did especially well, finishing in first place with a team score of 89. The Lewistown Golden Eagles were second with 84, while the Malta Mustangs were third with 36. The Havre High girls also performed well, finishing in second place with 62 points. The Ponies finished behind the Eagles with 87 and ahead of the M-Ettes with 32 team points.

Garrett Aguillard sat out a good chunk of the season due to injury, but over the last couple of weeks, he has really come on strong for the Ponies. Aguillard grabbed three top finishes on Saturday, including No. 1 finishes in the 1600 and 3200. Aguillard also finished fourth in the 400, an event he is not accustomed to running.

Aguillard's return to the lineup has been huge for the Ponies, especially alongside another top point earner, Mason Case. Case also held steady as one of the Blue Pony leaders, grabbing three first place finishes. Case was No. 1 in the 100-meter (10.98), No. 1 in the 200-meter (22.93) and No. 1 in the 400-meter (54.62).

Marc Klimas, Derek VanDessel, Thurman Holdsclaw and Zach Plum also placed in multiple events for the Ponies. Klimas finished second in the 3200 (10:38) and third in the 1600 (5:03), while VanDessel finished fourth in the 3200 (12:17) and fourth in the 1600 (5:25). Plum finished third in the triple jump (33-3) and fourth in the long jump (16-9), and Holdsclaw finished second in the triple jump (37-3) and second in the pole vault (11-6).

But the Ponies weren't done quite yet, as Matt Emge finished first in the pole vault (12-0), Ryne Anltey finished second in the high jump (4-10), Kade Rismon finished second in the shot put (40-4), Chasan Law finished third in the discus (116-1), Joey DevRies finished fourth in the shot put (38-0) and Thomas Gruber finished fourth in the pole vault (11-6). The 400-relay team also finished in first place, with a time of 45.96.

The Havre High girls team also showed up, ready to compete on Saturday, as they managed a second place finish overall.

HHS placed in 14 different events and were led by six different No. 1 finishes. Peyton Filius won the 800 with a time of 2:39, and followed suit by winning the 1600 with a time of 5:48. Sammy Evans also won a couple of her events, finishing first in the long jump with a leap of 16-5, and winning the triple jump with a leap of 35-4. Lacey Waid cleared 9-0 in the pole vault for another No.1 finish, and the 1600 relay team also placed first with a time of 4:37.

Neya Bischoff, Ashlynn VanVoast and Kiana Stump also pitched in with a handful of second place finishes, while Corissa White, Jennifer Nordgulen and VanVoast also grabbed third place finishes. Bischoff finished second in the shot put (24-9), while VanVoast finished second in the 800 (2:45) and the 200 (29.1). Stump also finished second in the 3200 (15:20), while the 400-relay team also finished second (54.23). White took third in the 100 (14.62) and the 200 (31.56), and Nordgulen took third in the long jump (14-1), and third in the triple jump (31-1), while VanVoast also took third in the 300 hurdles (53.59).

Evans also grabbed a fourth place finish in the high jump, while Bischoff grabbed a fourth place finish in the discus.

A lot of the common big names stepped up once again for the Ponies, but a lot of newer names emerged as well for HHS. As the season winds down, the Ponies know they need as many kids across the board to step up as possible, and competitors like Bischoff, Stump, Rismon, Antley and VanDessel did just that against a very tough Eagles, Mustangs and M-Ettes pool of competitors.

The Ponies will now have a small break to prepare for the divisional meet on May 18 and 19, where they will face Browning, Belgrade, Lewistown and Livingston.
