Busy week of track and field lies ahead

The Havre High track teams will be part of what should be a very big weekend for track and field in the coverage area.

Today, the Blue Ponies, of head coach Kari Filius, are in Lewistown for the Fergus Invitational, which is part of a two-meet week for the Blue Ponies. 

Havre made its season debut last week in Frenchtown, which was an impromptu trip for the Ponies after their first two meets got canceled. And HHS looked strong as the Pony girls were in second, led by Kaydence Reiter and the impressive debut of freshman distance runner Ashlyn Ford.

The Havre boys had an impressive debut as well, as the Ponies got strong performances from Brisbin Reiter and Tommy Lewis among others.

HHS will look for even more this week.

In Lewistown, Havre will get to see much of the Eastern A, including the host Eagles, who are always strong in track and field.

Then the Ponies will return home and get one day of rest before hopefully taking part in the annual Cal Wearley Invitational, hosted by North Star. The Cal Wearley is one of the biggest Class C track meets during the regular season, and features, Havre, as well as Class B powers like Malta, Chinook and Cut Bank. The meet is also filled with star-studded Class C teams, including the entire 9C, as well as Belt and others.

The Cal Wearley also kicks off the local track and field season, as there is a total of four meets schedule this season at the Havre Middle School Track.

The annual Cal Wearley is set for 9 a.m. Saturday, but first, the Ponies will take part in the Fergus Invitational today in Lewistown.
