Carey and Paup both Rolling Valley Champs
By SUE RIEDER
Carleigh Paup and Jake Carey both won events at the Rolling Valley Conference track meet in Mondamin on May 5. Paup’s 15’ 8” jump in the long jump was a new personal record, and out distanced the second place finisher, Sydney Parker from Exira-EHK, by two inches. Carey won the 800 meter run in 2:08.16 beating runner-up Jake Weber of Boyer Valley by almost two seconds. Paup also placed in the top six in the 200 meter dash, the 400 meter dash, and the 100 meter hurdles. Carey set a new personal record and took second in the 400 meter dash, and was also a member of two P-C relay teams that placed in the top six.
Other Rockets that placed in the top six in individual events were Emma Tilley in the 800 meter run, Kailee Hanlon in the discus, and Noah Juergensen in the discus and shot put. The 4 x 800 meter relay team of Colton Fitzpatrick, Cordero Reed, Carey, and Dylan Burgart finished second, and the 4 x 400 team of Fitzpatrick, Reed, Carey, and Juergensen was fourth.
The P-C girls tied with Adair-Casey for eighth place among the eleven teams scoring 26 points. Woodbine girls scored 144 points and won the girls title by a comfortable margin. Other girls team scores not previously mentioned were Exira/EHK 104, Glidden-Ralston 58, Charter Oak-Ute 53, West Harrison 51, Coon Rapids-Bayard 50, Boyer Valley 47, CAM 20, and Ar-We-Va 4.
The Paton-Churdan boys scored 34 points and tied for sixth place with Ar-We-Va and Exira/ EHK. Host school West Harrison scored 125 points and edged out Boyer Valley by four points to claim the boy’s championship. Other team scores not previously mentioned were Woodbine 92, Adair-Casey 47, Glidden-Ralston 36.5, Coon Rapids-Bayard 29.5, and CAM 5.
“Both Carleigh and Jake had solid nights,” said coach Chris Stimson. “Carleigh increased her long jump by almost a foot. Jake ran strong in the 400 and 800. This conference meet was very challenging. I am very proud of how all of the athletes performed. Dylan Burgart shaved another six seconds off of his 800 leg of the 4 x 800. I still think that there is a little more left in their tanks that I have to get them to use.”
