John Hamilton

TROTTER RUNNER Cree Lulack in action earlier this season. Lulack and the rest of the Plains thinclads who qualified will compete in the Western C meet this week.

The Trotters and Horsemen are moving on to the next track and field meet, and this one is the Western C divisional event in Missoula Thursday and Friday. The Western C will be held in conjunction with the Western B at Missoula Big Sky.

Coach Denise Montgomery's athletes punched their tickets to Missoula with placing efforts in the District 14C meet last week in Missoula, also at Big Sky. The 14C meet was run concurrently with the District 13C meet in similar fashion as to how this week's action will go down.

The Trotters scored 59 team points and finished fourth among the 14C girls while the Horsemen compiled 36 points and finished sixth in team scoring last week.

The Trotters' strongest showings in the 14C meet came in the throwing events. Kylee Altmiller won second place in the javelin with a best throw of 117 feet, 4 inches, Rachel Huenink placed fourth at 105-9 and Audrey Brown sixth at 98-5.

Similarly in the discus, Deriyan Sheehan won third place with a best throw of 86-0, Altmiller placed fifth at 83-9 and Huenink sixth at 83-4. Sheehan also won fifth place in the shot put with a best effort of 25-10.5 and Huenink finished just out of the money in seventh place at 24-4.

On the track, Cree Lulack won second place in the 300 meter hurdles, in addition to joining up with Audrey Brown, Rachel McNulty and Altmiller to win second in the 400 meter relay, also joing Brow, McNulty and Lexa Craft to win second in the 1600 meter relay.

Brown won fourth place in the 400 meters and Lulack fifth, Lulack placed sixth in the 200 and Craft seventh, and Brown claimed seventh in the 100 with McNulty taking tenth.

In the boys meet, senior Malachi Paulsen was crowned as Plains' only individual District 14C champion after winning the javelin with a best throw of 150 feet, 10.5 inches.

Elsewhere around the stadium, Charlie Rehbein won third place in the discus with a throw of 103-8 and Tucker Foster placed fifth in the shot put with a best mark of 35-5.

Nathan McNulty blazed to third place finishes in the 400 and 800 meter runs and also joined Peter Carey, A.J. Jermyn and Gabe Gamboa to win fourth place in the 1600 meter relay.
