Nevada girls turn in four top-five performances

STORY CITY – The Nevada boys’ track team placed fourth out of 10 teams at the Heart of Iowa Conference meet Monday in Story City.

The Nevada boys compiled two silver and two gold medals apiece, finishing with 74 points. Nevada edged South Hamilton by four points for fourth and the Cubs only trailed conference powers Gilbert (114 points), North Polk (104.5) and Collins-Maxwell-Baxter (94) in the final standings.

Colynn Black was the ultimate workhorse for Nevada at the meet as he ran the four longest races – the 3,200, 1,600, 800 and 400-meter running events – and placed in them all.

“Colynn gave a superhuman effort,” Nevada head coach John Pelzer said. “Amazingly, he ran a personal record for the season in his last event of the night (the 800). I’m not sure a lot of track athletes could competitively run theses distances in a very competitive meet like our conference.”

Black’s best place came in the 3,200 when he won the bronze with a time of 10 minutes, 32.91 seconds. Gilbert’s Thomas Pollard won the event in 10:19.07 and Saydel’s Casey Roberts was second in 10:24.12.

In the 400 Black came in seventh at :53.24. He took fourth in both the 1,600 and 800 with respective times of 4:52.07 and 2:02.70.

Jordan Sanders had the top individual showing for Nevada as he was runner-up in the discus with a throw of 138 feet, 4.5 inches. CMB’s Zach Samson won with a toss of 150-7.5 and the Raiders’ Clayton Weltha was third with a throw of 134-7.

Lance Barber took seventh in the discus and eighth in the shot put with respective throws of 120-9 and 41-0. Erik Fevold also placed in a field event with a jump of 18-8.25 in the long jump.

On the track, Chase Dobson and Peyton Sharp finished fourth and fifth in the 100 with respective times of :11.50 and :11.63. In the 200 they switched places as Sharp came in fifth at :23.66 and Dobson was sixth in :23.83.

Fevold also took eighth in the 400 low hurdles with a time of :59.66.

The top relay for Nevada was the 4 X 100. Dobson , Gabe Dubberke, Avalos and Sharp teamed up to run a :45.31 and place second behind Roland-Story’s :44.65.

Avalos, Pelzer, Brandon Becker and Dubberke placed third in the 4 X 200 with a time of 1:37.70. North Polk won in 1:34.79 and Greene County was second after finishing in 1:35.13.

Fevold, Pelzer, Brandon Russom and Dubberke gave Nevada a fourth-place time in the shuttle hurdle relay of 1:02.93. Fevold, Dobson, Avalos and Sharp also ran a fifth-place time of 3:40.15 in the 4 X 400.

Nevada tacked on a seventh-place finish in the 4 X 800 and an eighth-place showing in the distance medley.

The Cub girls ended up last out of 10 teams with 26.5 points. Gilbert and Roland-Story dominated the girls’ meet with 152 and 142 points respectively.

Despite placing 10th, Nevada head girls’ coach Ted Johnson said his team did some good things at Story City.

“We had some personal-bests and some good handoffs in our relays,” Johnson said. “It was good for us to run against some tough competition in our conference.”

Alyssa Boyd had the top showing for the Cub girls as she tied for fourth in the high jump after clearing 4-10. Roland-Story’s Lauren Himan won with a jump of 5-3 and South Hamilton’s Alyssa Hegland was the only other girl to top 4-10 as she cleared five feet even.

Emily Dittmer came in fifth in the 3,000 and sixth in the 1,500 for Nevada. Her 3,000 time was 11:54.34 and she completed the 1,500 in 5:33.79.

Erin Sellberg also placed individually for the Cub girls as she took sixth in the long jump with a jump of 14-4.5.

Nevada finished fifth in two relay events.

The Cub quartet of Lindsey Haley, Sellberg, Kelsey Haley and Mara Rhodes took fifth in both the 4 X 200 and 4 X 100. Their 4 X 200 time was 1:54.66 and they completed the 4 X 100 in :54.09.

Nevada will host a Class 3A coed state qualifying meet today at Cub Stadium. The meet is set to begin at 4 p.m.
