Royal boys claim two medals at Bengal Relays

Webb and Erickson both win bronze

GILBERT – The Colo-Nesco boys’ track team picked up a pair of bronze medals and the Royals scored in five events overall in Class B at the Bengal Relays Monday.

Competing in windy and rain weather, Jake Webb took third in the discus, and Tyler Erickson was third in the 400-meter dash and fourth in the 400 low hurdles for Colo-Nesco. As a team, the Royals placed eighth in Class B with 19 points.

“Jake had another consistent night in the discus and Tyler ran a personal best time in the 400,” Colo-Nesco head coach Tony Stalzer said. “Steven Cutler also ran the 3,200 for the first time and placed. It was a tough night to compete, but I felt like our kids worked hard and they are improving every day.”

Webb’s best throw in the discus was 133 feet, two inches. That was just behind the runner-up throw of 138-6 by West Marshall’s Colby Dunn, with the best throw being 150-4 by Madrid’s Clay Kirkpatrick.

Erickson completed the open 400 in :55.55 to just beat the :55.98 by Madrid’s Nigel Niemier for the bronze. Van Meter’s Brennan Dostal won in :53.46 and Northeast Hamilton’s Nicholas Jeffers took the silver in :54.93.

In the 400 low hurdles, Erickson just missed getting a medal after clocking in at 1:01.50. Madrid’s Owen Gibbons won the bronze with a time of 1:00.88, and South Hamilton’s Triston Twedt and Van Meter’s Justin Sacker took first and second with respective times of :57.73 and :59.01.

Erickson also anchored Colo-Nesco to a fifth-place finish in the shuttle hurdle relay. Noah Gibbons, Grant Tiarks and Brady Stoeffler ran the first three legs as Colo-Nesco finished in 1:12.29.

Cutler took sixth in the 3,200. His time of 11:17.40 was just behind the 11:14.34 by Van Meter’s James Orf.

Madrid edged South Hamilton and Van Meter for the Class B team title at Gilbert. The Tigers had 118 points to the Hawks’ 114 and Bulldogs’ 111.

Final Class B team scores: 1. Madrid 118, 2. South Hamilton 114, 3. Van Meter 111, 4. West Marshall 92, 5. Ogden 46, 6. Northeast Hamilton 31, 7. GMG 27, 8. Colo-Nesco 19.
