Savage Heat rise to challenge


The Savage Heat are rising to the occasion as the Western C track and field meet arrives.

The Western C divisional meet will be held in conjunction with the Western B at Missoula County Public Schools Stadium at Big Sky High School in Missoula Thursday and Friday.

Tyler Carr and Katelyn Christensen were the big point-winners for the Hot Springs track and field teams at that same facility in the District 14C meet in Missoula last Friday and Saturday.

Hot Springs’ boys scored 53 points to place fourth and the girls racked up 39 points to finish fifth in team scoring. Charlo won both sides of the 14C meet as expected, please see Noxon track and field story for final team scoring.

A senior, Carr finished second in three different races – the 400 meters, the 110 hurdles and the 300 hurdles – and placed third in the shot put, with a best put of 37 feet, 8.5 inches. Carr also joined Jack McAllister, Bert DeTienne and Kyle Lawson to place third in the 1600 meter relay in a time of 4:04.77.

For her part, Christensen, a freshman, scored points all over the Big Sky track and field, claiming second place points in the 200 meters (in 28.32 seconds) and long jump (15 feet, 9 inches), besides winning third in the 100 meters (14.00) and javelin (with a season-best throw of 116-10.5).

Elena McAllister, who won third in the 300 meter hurdles, fourth in the 100 meter hurdles and sixth in the long jump, completed scoring for the Hot Springs girls. Thea Weckerle narrowly missed scoring by finishing seventh in the long jump.

Back with the boys, Jack Mack won third place in the pole vault (clearing 8 feet, 6 inches) and in the triple jump (with a best mark of 38 feet, 2 inches), Lawson placed fifth in the 110 and 300 meter hurdles and Bert DeTienne tracked down sixth place in 1600 meter run.
