ALLEMAN – Dominance in sprint relays and some personal records provided the Nevada boys’ track team with plenty of highlights at the Heart of Iowa Conference meet Monday and the Cub girls also turned in several personal bests at Comet Field in Alleman

The Cub boys won both the 4 X 200 and 4 X 100-meter relays. They also took third in the shuttle hurdle relay and medaled in two individual events.

“I was proud of the way the boys competed,” Nevada head boys’ track coach John Pelzer said. “The weather was miserable, but our boys put their best foot forward without a complaint.”

Chase Dobson, Erik Fevold, Traye Pelzer and Peyton Sharp teamed up to win the 4 X 200 in one minute, 36.57 seconds. The Cub quartet blew away the competition as Greene County was over one second behind in second place at 1:38.09.

In the 4 X 100 Nevada ran Sharp first and followed with Fevold, Pelzer and Dobson. The Cubs finished in :44.94 to whip Roland-Story (:45.66) for the gold.

“We continued our strong year in the sprint relays,” John Pelzer said. “I believe we are coming into form at the right time for our state meet run.”

Dobson also took third individually in the 100 after running an :11.46. He placed fourth in the 200 with a :24.12 showing.

Fevold stepped up to give Nevada its lone field event medal by placing third in the long jump. Fevold’s peak jump of 19 feet, 11.5 inches was a personal record.

Fevold, Sharp and Pelzer were also part of Nevada’s bronze-medal shuttle hurdle team. Ross Mitchell ran the other leg as the Cubs finished in a season-best time of 1:03.66.

Nevada’s 4 X 800 team of Joel Olson, Connor MacVey, Leighton Memmer and Lucas Markey placed sixth. The Cub team clocked in at 9:12.50.

Stephen Dolley set personal records in both the shot put and discus for Nevada with respective throws of 40-2.25 and 117-8 and Trice Logsdon had his best-ever showing in the discus with a throw of 96-1.

“I was pleased with Stephen, who PR’d in the shot and discus, Trice in the discus and Erik in the long jump,” John Pelzer said.

Nevada finished seventh out of 10 teams in the final standings with 48 points. Collins-Maxwell-Baxter won the boys’ title with 152 points, North Polk took second with 135 points and Gilbert turned in a score of 115 to place third.

In the girls’ competition Nevada placed eighth with 48 points. Prairie City-Monroe easily won with 148 points, Gilbert was runner-up with 113 points and Roland-Story came in third with a score of 102.

The Nevada girls medaled in three relays and two individual events.

“I thought the girls did a really nice job tonight,” Nevada head girls’ track coach Ted Johnson said. “We had personal bests in a lot of events and we are peaking at the right time. I’m excited to see what they will do at (the state qualifying meet) this Thursday in Nevada.”

Kelsey Haley, Caroline Goecke, Abby Stephenson and Lindsey Haley took second in the 4 X 100 and third in both the 4 X 200 and sprint medley for Nevada.

In the 4 X 100 and 4 X 200 the Cub quartet ran in the order of Kelsey, Goecke, Stephenson and Lindsey.

Their time of :52.73 in the 4 X 100 beat out CMB’s :53.19 for second behind PCM’s :51.70. In the 4 X 200, they ran a 1:53.12 to trail only the 1:51.33 by PCM and Roland-Story’s 1:52.82 showing.

In the sprint medley Nevada ran Kelsey, Goecke and Lindsey before anchoring with Stephenson. The Cubs finished in 1:58.64, trailing Roland-Story (1:57.46) and PCM (1:58.23).

Nevada also came in sixth in the 4 X 800 with a time of 11:22.10. Amaris Hornbuckle, Carrie Satre, Nicole Dewell and Caitlin Dewell formed the Cub 4 X 800 team.

Individually, Nevada won two bronze medals.
