The Utah High School state track meet is still six weeks away, but the athletes from Cedar, Canyon View and Parowan showed plenty of strength at the Desert Hills Invitational that wrapped up Saturday in St. George.

Both Cedar teams finished second to the Thunder in the final team standings and both Canyon View teams came in fifth overall. Parowan’s girls team came in eighth, while the boys were further back in a tie for 12th.

Here is a complete list of those who earned top-five finishes at the DH Invitational by event:

In the girls 1,600-meter run, Cedar sophomore Mic Webster came in fifth with a time of 5:17.72. She followed up with a win in the 3,200 with an 11:11.45.

Cedar junior Jensen Lambert won the boys 1,600 in 4:25.25, beating out two Desert Hills runners (Spencer Ford, Bryson King) and completed the double in the 3,200 in 9:28.64

Hannah Sobel came in second for Cedar in the 100 hurdles in 15.91 seconds. Fellow junior Trenton Maurer was also second in the 110 hurdles in 16.18, and Canyon View’s Kaden Jolley finished in a flat-footed tie for fourth with Desert Hills’ Tate Denos in 16.64, with the pair beating Panguitch’s Tyrel Henrie to the line by just .03 seconds.

Both Cedar teams finished third in the 4x100-meter relay. Kamree Glover, Jasie York, Rachael Hunt and her sister, Julia, ran a 52.44 time, while Canyon View (Ashley Bulloch, Larissa Dabb, Sydnee Evans and Leslie Vance) finished fifth in 53.20.

Tyler Barrick, Maurer, Kyle Anderson and Derek Ball ran their relay in 44.69 for the Redmen, and Canyon View’s team of Nelson Douglas, Connor Rigtrup, Britt Dunnell and Jake Nelson edged out Parowan for fifth in 46.81.

In the 400 meters, York and Rachael Hunt finished 1-2 for the Lady Reds and were the only ones to run in under a minute with times of 57.62 and 58.87, respectively. CV’s Mitchell Wright was the top boys finisher in third in 51.42 and Ball came in fifth for Cedar in 52.29.

Dylan Clements was the winner in the boys 300 hurdles, edging out Desert Hills’ Carter Reynolds at the line by two-hundredths of a second (40.29-40.31). Jolley was fourth in the same race for CV in 42.72.

Kaysie Klemic won a similar battle in the girls’ 800, beating the Thunder’s Laynee Wells by .03 seconds in 2:24.31. The Parowan girls team of Alyssa Ulrich, Lily Kerr, Autumn Rogerson and Aubrey Pickett won the girls sprint medley relay in 4:48.94, benefitting when Snow Canyon’s team was disqualified for a bad exchange.

Rachael Hunt was second in the girls 200 for Cedar in 27.71 and CV’s Larissa Dabb was third in 28.46. Seth Dabb won the boys 200 for the Falcons in 23.48, just ahead of Millard’s Turner Koyle (23.59).

The Cedar girls 4x400 relay team of Alexia Bird, Brinley Hess, Klemic and Julia Hunt was second in 4:12.26 to round out the track event finishers.

In the field events, CV’s Cristal Elias was second with a toss of 104 feet, 7 inches. Cedar’s Merce Tarrayo was fifth in the discus at 94-9.

Bulloch was second for Canyon View in the long jump at 16-5.75, and Cedar’s Hannah Sobel was third (16-.5). Dylan Clements won the boys long jump for Cedar in 21-9 and triple jump (42-7.75). Teammate Bailey Gray was third in the long jump (20-5) and Parowan’s Travis Gale was fourth with a leap of 19-7.5.

Seth Dabb earned a second win for CV in the long jump at 6-4, Maurer won the javelin throw for Cedar (165-5), and Jacob Awa-Reyes was fifth in the discus (129-7).

In the final top performance of the event, Rogerson finished second for Parowan in the high jump (5-1).

-Can’t leave this week without mentioning a stat that may be the offensive jolt Canyon View’s baseball team was looking for. In the space of just three innings in Friday’s doubleheader sweep over Richfield – the sixth inning of Game 1 and the first two innings of Game 2 – the Falcons scored 24 runs.

It took them 31 innings to score that many runs previously, going all the way back to the fifth inning of the Hurricane game March 22.

CV finds itself in a share of first place in Region 12 after one three-game series, so it’s a boost that’s more than welcome.
