C-N’s Riese qualifies for state

BELLE PLAINE – The Colo-Nesco girls advanced one individual to state, and the Royal girls and boys both just missed qualifying in multiple events at the Class 1A state qualifying meet in Belle Plaine May 15.

The Royal girls moved junior Sam Riese on in the discus. Riese had by far her best throw of the season at 109 feet, eight inches.

“Sam is on to the state meet in the discus for the third consecutive year,” Colo-Nesco head coach Josh Nessa said. “She improved her best throw of the season by almost 17 feet.”

Riese placed second to qualify on distance as only the individual champion automatically qualifies for state in 1A. Riese ranks 10th among the 24 qualifiers in 1A.

Caitlan Clark was painfully close to moving on in the 200-meter dash.

Clark crossed the finish line in :28.91 to place second behind the :28.31 run by Springville’s Chrissy Hoogland. Clark was less than one-tenth of a second behind the final 1A qualifying time of :28.82 by Waterloo Christian’s Vanessa Lorenz.

Shayla Dean almost made it in both the 400 and 100.

In the 400 Dean placed third at the qualifying meet with a time of 1:05.29.

Dean’s time was just a hair behind the 1:05.24 by St. Marys’ Mindy Gerrietts as the final individual to qualify on time. Dean actually beat the lowest time to qualify – a 1:06.27 run by qualifying meet champion Jose McCarty of Clay Central.

In the 100 Dean placed fifth with a :14.17 showing. Fremont-Mills’ Kelsey Hurley ran a :14.06 as the final individual to qualify for the event in 1A.

Angela Brinkman also had a close call in the 400 hurdles.

Brinkman ran a 1:14.10 to place third. Keota’s Kelsi Sieren ran the final qualified time at 1:12.72.

The sprint medley was Colo-Nesco’s best relay event. The Royal team of Brandi Erickson, Makaelyn Neuendorf, Clark and Dean ran a 2:08.89 to place sixth.

As a team the Colo-Nesco girls tied with Lisbon for sixth out of 13 schools with 62 points. Springville won the girls’ team title with 107 points and BCLUW came in second with a score of 98.

“Overall, I am very pleased with our team as we improved throughout the season,” Nessa said. “We tied for sixth out of 13 teams at the (state qualifying) meet and narrowly missed second place at our conference meet the prior week.”

In the boys’ competition Colo-Nesco produced one runner-up performance, one third-place effort and a fourth-place showing. The Royals came close to state in both the 4 X 100 and discus.

“The rain and cold did not help our chances to qualify for state,” Colo-Nesco head boys’ track coach Tony Stalzer said. “But I am happy with how our kids ran.”

The Royal boys 4 X 100 team of Taylor Hill, Clayton Bryan, Noah Gibbons and Christian Reischauer claimed a silver medal in :47.06. That time trailed only the :46.86 by Belle Plaine at the qualifying meet and Belle Plaine’s time ended up the slowest qualifying time in 1A.

The same foursome took third in the 4 X 200 for Colo-Nesco. They ran a 1:39.01 to trail Lisbon’s 1:36.08 and HLV’s 1:38.16 at the qualifying meet and North Butler’s 1:36.39 was the final qualifying time in 1A.

Dacian Wilson ended up fourth in the discus for Colo-Nesco. Wilson’s throw of 121-3 beat his previous best toss by nearly 16 feet and it was just nine inches behind the final qualifying throw by BGM’s Kyle Gritsch.

Brady Stoeffler placed fifth in the open 400 with a time of :58.41 to beat his previous-best mark of 1:03.33. The Royal shuttle hurdle team of Bryan, Grant Tiarks, Reischauer and Gibbons clocked in at 1:06.08 to place fifth.

Colo-Nesco also received a personal-record time in the 3,200 by Elliot Morgan as he ran a 12:09.07.

The Royal boys ended up eighth out of 13 schools in the team standings with 34.5 points. Belle Plaine won with a score of 133 and Lisbon was a close second with 128 points.
