Nine Lund track athletes traveled to Provo, Utah, May 3-4 for the longest running high school track meet in the country.
For the 103rd year, high school track teams met under the snow-capped Wasatch Range.
Thirty-five teams representing schools from Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho competed in the smaller school division.
Another 30 large schools were also competing at this meet. Senior Emily Cornelison finished 3rd in the shot (36-feet, 9-inches) for the only medalist on the team. She also finished 8th in the discus (100-5).
Senior James Harris had the busiest day as he competed in four events. He finished 16th of the 38 runners in the 300-meter hurdles (44.10). He also ran the 110-meter hurdles (17.95), long jump (17-7), and 200m (24.66).
The 4×100 team of Kelsea Reid, McCall Harness, Sammi Cornelison, and Ciera Jensen ran a respectable 55.54. Reid also ran the 100-meters (14.28) and the 200m-meters (29.85). Sammi Cornelison long jumped 12-5. Harness ran the 100m (14.76) and 200m (31.19). Jensen ran the 100-meters (14.65) and 200-meters (29.91). Senior Derick Rimington threw the shot 35-5. Senior Tori Montoya ran the 100-meter hurdles (20.23) and threw the shot (29-11.5).
The Mustangs will use the experience from this big high-pressure meet to carry them into the region meet starting Friday at Sunrise Mountain High School in Las Vegas.
