Delta High School split its track squads last weekend so that more athletes could see more action. The varsity teams traveled to Grand Junction to participate in the Mickey Dunn Meet while junior varsity athletes attended the Hotchkiss Invitational.
High placings were hard to come by in Hotchkiss last Saturday for the Lady Panthers. Delta finished with 19 points to place eighth in the 13-team field, which was predominantly varsity teams.
Delta's 3200m relay team had the highest finish with a second place and a time of 12:17.32. Members of that team include juniors Rachel Scroggs and Anna Ramsing plus freshmen Jade Mahaffey and Kaylee Dunham.
Dunham had the second highest finish for Delta with a third in the 3200m run. Mahaffey was eighth in the same race.
Delta's 800m sprint medley relay team was seventh.
There were three top-eight finishes for Delta's boys last Saturday.
Will Gilliam (110m high hurdles) and Dylan Brattain (shot put) placed eighth for the Panthers.
Delta's 400m relay team matched the two individual placers with an eighth-place finish as well.blog comments powered by Disqus
