Tiger track and field earns 12 top finishes

With 12 top-8 finishes in the 4A Jeffco League Relay meet Wednesday in Lakewood, the Summit High track and field team continued its solid season.

In the unique meet, teams competed only in relay events, giving the Tigers the interesting task of pairing runners and throwers together that normally wouldn’t participate in relay competitions.

It didn’t seem Summit had much trouble adjusting.

The best finish of the day came in the girls’ 3,200-meter team race, in which two runners run a mile each for a combined time. Cali Greksa and Sydney Stein worked together for Summit for a second-place finish.

Also on the girls’ side of the competition, the Tigers had four other top-6 finishes.

Alex Cooper, Erica Duplan, Hannah Price and Taylor Green combined to finish fourth in the 4×100 relay, and Cooper, Duplan, Julie Bishop and Crystal Nichols were sixth in the 4×300.

The 4×400 team (Cooper, Bishop, Green and Julia Hayes) was fifth, and so was the 4×800 squad (Rachelle Walter, Hayes, Greksa and Stein).

In the boys’ races, Summit had seven teams with high finishes, including a fifth-place finish from both the 4×200 relay (Ridge Strickler, Nick Adolph, Curtis Dankof and Chris Braun) and the 800 sprint medley team (Strickler, Henley Huang, Dankof and Alex Sleep).

The 4×100 team (Strickler, Huang, Dankof and Braun) was sixth; the 4×400 team (Adolph, Strickler, Sleep and Shane Arnold) was eighth; the 4×800 team (Taylor Colvin, Wade Rosko, Same Provorse and Clint Sawyer) was sixth; the 3,200 team (Lee Gordon and Sawyer) finished seventh; and the distance medley squad (Arnold, Gordon, Colvin and Provorse) was seventh.

The Tigers are back in action April 30 at the Shipwreck Invitational at Englewood High School.
