Several Pine Bluffs athletes pre-qualify for state meet at Okie Blanchard Invite


The Pine Bluffs track team headed cross-county last Friday to take part in the Okie Blanchard Invitational at Cheyenne East High School.

The boys team finished in fifth place, while the girls came in sixth in team standings.

As head coach Dustin Lee explained, it was a good day overall for the team and individuals.

“Despite a little breeze throughout the day the weather was great for our first trip to the new Okie Blanchard Stadium. Our athletes took advantage of the weather and the tough competition and had several season and personal best performances. According to my preliminary count, we had 11 pre-qualification marks for the state meet performed by our kids!”

Some stand out performances were Montanna Chrystal who won the 100m, placed 4th in the high jump, anchored the 2nd place 400m relay and anchored the 4th place 1600m relay. All but her high jump performance was a pre-qualification mark for the state meet. Her teammates on the 400m relay were Amber Abrams, Sierra Shelit, and Jadyn Golding. On the 1600m relay, she was joined by Sierra Shelit, Hyleigh Fornstrom and Kammie Ragsdale. Ragsdale also took 2nd in the high jump and Hallie Christofferson brought home 2nd place in the 3200m.

On the boys side of things, Ishmael Depaulitte had an outstanding long jump day with having a personal best of 21'5". The boys also had a great day in the throwing events with Wyatt Fornstrom, Hunter Thompson and Tucker Norman all placing in the top 10 in the shot put and Thompson and Norman making the top six in the discus. Thompson also went away with the 3rd place spot in the high jump.”
