Our Star Valley boys and girls have done it again. Traveling to Provo Utah, they participated in the BYU Multi-Event / Steeple track meet. The steeplechase is a race where runners have to run 2000 meters jumping over 18 barriers, 5 of them in water pits. There were 7, 3A high school teams from Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah that participated in this event. Star Valley came out on top.

The Boys:

The boys brought home the gold scoring 18 points total and taking 1at place. Individually, Shane Henderson placed 1st, Asefa Wentzel placed 2nd, Trevor Clark placed 12th, and Spencer Howes finished 15th.

RESULTS

Shane Henderson not only took first place, but broke the school record. At the time  he had the second fastest time in the nation. Henderson qualified earlier in the year, but this gave him a better seed time. He is planning on going to North Carolina in June to compete at nationals.

Asefa Wetzel also qualified for nationals in the 1 mile run.

The Girls:

The Girls also, with 14 points, took 1st place. The individual shows for them included Kayli Draney 2nd and Emmy Heywood 3rd.

Coach Draney commented, “I love coaching this group of kids. They are very talented and very hard working. It makes it very fun.”
