Summit track and field has eight top-3 finishes
ENGLEWOOD – Catherine Clark led the way Friday for the Summit High School track and field team, finishing first in the 200-meter dash at the Dakota Ridge Track Meet.Clark also took second in the 100 hurdles and fourth in the high jump, but she wasn’t the only successful Tiger. Katie Sodergren placed second in the triple jump, while the 1600 relay team consisting of Catherine Child, Clark, Mackenzie Jones and Steph Wade also placed second. Third-place finishers included Sharayah Dossett (discus), Nadi DeJulio (high jump), Jenya Berino (3200) and the 3200 relay team consisting of Sodergren, Jones, Berino and Whitney Henceroth. DeJulio and Clark each tied the school record in the high jump by clearing 4 feet, 8 inches. DeJulio placed ahead of Clark because she had fewer faults overall. The largest individual improvement by a Tiger came from freshman Bonnie Pierce, who’s sixth place discus throw of 69 feet, 7 inches beat her previous best by almost 30 feet. The top Summit male finisher was Braden Shoop, who took sixth in the triple jump.SHS was the only 4A school at the meet, but it didn’t seem to matter. “The team was intimidated when we got there,” Summit coach Rob Royer said. “Then we started doing well, then really well. By the end of the meet they were saying it was the best day they’ve ever had.”Tiger baseball falls to Alameda and ConiferALAMEDA – Two errors Saturday cost the Summit High School baseball team four runs against Alameda in a 4-0 loss. Eric Nilsson had Summit’s only hit of the game on a bunt single in the sixth inning, and senior Garrison Green pitched seven innings, giving up four runs on five hits. None of the Pirate runs were earned.”We’ve had really good defense all year, but in the critical times we’ve made critical errors,” Summit coach John Padjen said. Padjen said the umpires didn’t help the Tigers’ cause. “There were three terrible calls that could have kept us in the game,” he said. Playing every game on the road this season, SHS has been on the bad side of several controversial calls throughout the year, according to Padjen.”We’ve had about 12 close games where a call here or there costs us the game,” Padjen said. “We’re really tired of it.”SHS lost to Conifer 9-8 on Friday. The Tigers were led by shortstop Kylar Dossett, who went 3-4 with a double and 2 RBIs. Second baseman Drew Arnesen went 3-3 with three singles and two stolen bases, while Nick Lee had a good outing on the mound going the final two and a third innings only giving up two hits and zero runs.Sean Star also contributed from the plate, going 3-4 with 3 RBIs.Andy Frame can be reached at (970) 668-3998, ext. 236, or at email@example.com.
