Way to go Kalon! 4 event state champ! were proud!
Events are dominated on a yearly basis it doesn't matter what classification or
what event it happens to be that year. Last year Collin Boevers from Judge
Dominated everything, regardless of classification he would have won. This year
Luke Puskedra did the same thing. The Arrheinius Bros. did it back in the day
too. Track isn't as easy to get bent with that stuff as other sports like
football. When you have 34 people on your football team, you better have some
dang high profile athletes if you expect to win, same thing with basketball. Our
team only cuts about 3 kids each year, tell me how we could compete with teams
where kids beg to be on the team? Hard work can't erase a talent crop, that's
why the division. Look at North Summit, the school is stacked at their level,
but they are jsut average at a higher classification.
and your doing great in 3a arnt u delta
i meant to get my facts straight..your guys are king of the mole hill..so bring
on superman and i brreakkk him down!!! as usual!!!!
Whitehorse did not get shut out, they placed 18th. This is a far cry from the
other 15 schools in 1A who did not even score a point. Get your facts right and
stop trying to be so full of yourself. By the way, San Juan scored as well at
state finishing 12th out of 20 2A schools.
I know you are not from Juab, because if you are you are living in la-la land.
Juab, more than any other 2A school, has NEVER dominated Delta in anything. You
need a history lesson little person.
Delta people crack me up! We still got to face delta in meets since
then...Everytime we played Delta in anything we dominated you guys hahaha so
don't speak anymore. Delta is also one of the stinkiest places I have ever been
too other than Moroni and the turkey farms. And Russ single handedly won the
title for Juab. His older brother Trent holds the state record for the Jav with
over 200. His brother Wade is really good too, He is on a mission now but he was
(and will be again when he gets home) a Decathalete at SUU. And just wait for
Jake Nielsen...The kid is in 8th grade and just may have the most potential of
all the Nielsen brothers. Oh and if you didn't know, their dad Gary is Juab's
Track Coach. The man really knows his stuff, I had the honor of running for him
from 2002-2005. If you ever need any pointers about track, he is seriously one
of the best there is!
You 2A schools ONLY have dynasties because you got Delta kicked out of the
classification. SO feel lucky that we were not able to continue our domination.
I throw jav for a 5A team, but dang what's with Juab having so many good kids.
They must have a good coach or something is in the water. That one kid
basically threw 190, that's amazing! Nice job bro
Actually its the 2nd one thats happened. Another guy in Utah took one to the leg
earlier this season...They need to have better security to keep people out of
the restricted area and it won't happen again
Throwing these weapons around like toys? Thats ridiculous! How many meets did
not have any jav injury occur this year? EVERY one but one. One mans bad
judgement should not effect the sport
Compare the times and the distances by Juab especially the javelin and high jump
(they would have won), they would be competitive scores with the 5A,4A, and 3A.
Not bad for a 2A school. The guy hit by the javelin was in the wrong place don't
make the kids suffer by banning it for someone elses mistake.
notice how san juan and whitehorse got shut out..then they will be singing the
same ol' song when football comes around....meatballs!
did anyone see how close the javelin race was in 5A? that was a pretty intense
competition to watch. both competitors did really well.
Yeah, we should deprive athletes of an even because a stupid photographer can't
read a sign. (I hope the sarcasm was obvious). Let's not penalize the kids
because of something out of their control. All they need to do is do a better
job at monitoring the field so people don't wander out during the event. It's
just that easy. Schedule the event during a lull... they could finish it all in
less than an hour, including the qualifying round as well as the finals. Do it
during an intermission from all the other events. I love the Jav, let's not see
it taken away.
Idaho doesn't throw the jav. I believe they have the triple jump instead. If
Utah bans the jav though, they might as well ban the shot, disc, pole, and the
hurdles. Then they should make tracks out of bubble wrap, and have all the
runners wear pads, helmets, and racing flats instead of spikes.
The Javelin throw needs to be banned. It is just not save having peole throw
those weppons around like toys
I hope javelin doesn't get banned. In my opinion its the best even out there (i
throw). Please don't ban it, just make the rules a little more strict if
The photographer was taking pictures of the discus and wasn't paying attetion to
the nearby javelin throw. He walked away from the hospital with stiches and was
out shooting the meet by the end of the day. It hit him right below his knee.
People like this photographer are those who get events like the javelin banned
from track and field. Come on. Pay attention. You could get killed.
richfield has more second place finishes than juab over its history. walk
through the halls
the guy that got hit by the jav was taking pictures of the poll volt or the
discus when he got hit. he was lucky it didnt go through bolth legs. but a guy
told him to look out and he stepped back with one leg and the jav. got him in
the other leg. It wasent bad it was right in front of the shin. It just kind of
looked like a peircing. But he was dang lucky!
Great job Kiersten Blauer on winning the 1600 and 3200--she also placed 2nd in
the 2A 800 with a time of 2:18:75 (this is left out in the article). She was
also not mentioned as a runner in the 2A 4x400 team. The team was Blauer, Warr,
Robinson, and Harwood.
Millard is the Dynasty for football and wrestling, Richfield is a dynasty for
track, and Juab is a dynasty at being frequent runner-ups in everything... I'm
happy for them to actually win this time! Maybe they can win a title in football
for the first time in their history too...
Brent R, We at JRES are very proud of you.
Hey guys hold your heads high, state 4 out of 6 years is great especially when
you took second the other two. Richfield is the track dynasty of 2A with 12
Amazing Juab scored so high. Good job Juab especially Russ Neilson.
Girls 2A 300 hurdles and high jump won by freshman!!!Good job dealing with
the pressure all season and come up big at state !!!!
Good job boys! Its been awhile, I'm glad we finally won state in track
again...its been 10 years!
The mile (aka 1600 meters) and girls shot put were first-day events and printed
with the first-day results in yesterday's newspaper and put online yesterday.
Pay attention before y'all go spouting off.
They just listed Saturday's finals in today's article. Friday's finals (1600 and
girls Shot Put) were listed yesterday. Do a little searching.
One mile is 1609 meters, but the track is 400 meters long, so they run 1600
meters instead of "the mile."
I saw the article about the javelin injury just now ... it wasn't grouped with
the other track articles. That guy's lucky he wasn't killed.
It was ran on Friday.I never thought I'd see a sub 9 3200. Amazing.
I heard from one of the athlete's parents that a news photographer was injured
at the meet yesterday when a javelin went through his leg. Anyone know about
The mile was run on Friday. The results were in Saturdays paper.
It's the 1600 meter race now, which is actually about 30 feet short of one mile.
This was done to bring the race in line with all the others, which are measured
in metric units.
the 1600M is the mile.
Did you forget to put in the shot put for 5A girls.RIVERTON took FIRST
42'-SECOND 37'-THIRD 37' AND SEVENTH 36'.
It's been a few years since I've followed high school T&F. Since when is the
mile not on the program?
