Evart boys third, girls fourth at Alma

ALMA — Evart competed in Saturday’s Alma Scotty Relays.

Evart was third for the boys and fourth for the girls in Division 4.

“It was cold, windy and a long day,” boys coach Dennis Peacock said. “I thought we did pretty well, actually. The kids, almost to a man, had personal bests.”

Zach Parshall won the high jump (5-10). Also for the boys, Santana Scott was first in the 800 meters (2:03.56), Dillon Danley was fifth in the 100 meters (11.71). Danny Griffin was second in the 400 meters (53.50). Scott and Woods were one-two in the 1,600 meters (4:20.32 and 4:41.6) while Nathan Woods was fourth (4:50.96).

Scott’s time was a school record.

“When you get down to 4:20, you’re in pretty good company,” Peacock said.

Cody Pritchard, Wetters, Griffin and Danley were first in the 4x200 relay (1:35.71), Josh Woods, Pritchard, Scott and Griffin were second in the 4x400 relay (3:44.13) and Josh and Nathan Woods, Austin Hamilton and Scott were second in the 4x800 relay (8:46.88).

For the girls, Brooke Belleville, Stokes and Arianna Mooney were second in the 4x100 relay (55.67), Arianna Mooney, Stokes, Wallace and Belleville won the 4x200 relay (2:00.46) and Macey Wallace was third in the long jump (14-8).

“We’ve had a lot of injuries lately,” Evart girls coach Todd Scott said. “We’re doing the best we can. We’re setting PRs with individuals. We’re trying to keep up our work ethic and do the best we can.”

Belleville won the 100 meters (13.63) and was second in the 200 meters (29.16).

“Macey Wallace is helping us in field events and has turned into a good runner,” Scott said. “She’s only a sophomore. She’s been working extra hard.”

Regionals are Saturday at Breckenridge.

“I think we should be in the top three,” Peacock said of the boys team. “Anything can happen. We have a few kids banged up with injuries. We don’t know exactly who we will have Saturday and at what kind of strength they’ll be at.”
