BAYARD, Neb. - At times the sun was shining and at others, the snow was flying.

But the one constant at the Bayard, Neb. Invite last Thursday was Pine Bluffs finishing at or near the top in enough events to take home its second first-place victory of the 2018 track and field season.

Seth Tangeman continued his strong season with a win in the 100-meter dash and a second-place finish in the 200-meter dash with times of 11.20 and 24.58 respectively.

Tangeman was also the anchor for Pine Bluffs' 4X100-meter relay team which also consisted of Ishmael DePaullite, Colby Lamb and Kyle Thurin.

Pine Bluffs also had stellar showings in the field events, with several medals being earned.

Haize Fornstrom's 6'2" jump was good for a first place in the high jump.

Switching to the triple jump, Fornstrom earned first place by more than 3 feet at 41'11.5".

Fornstrom's jump of 19'06.5" landed him a third-place in the long jump. Finishing just ahead in that event was DePaullite at 20'03".

Also earning strong finishes in field events were Wyatt Fornstrom, Tucker Norman, James Merryfield and Kyle Thurin.

Norman and Merryfield finished 2-3 in the discus throw with throws of 132' 09" and 128', respectively. Finishing fifth in the same event was Wyatt Fornstrom at 123' 03".

Wyatt Fornstrom just missed out on a first-place finish in the shot put throw at 47' .25".

Switching back to track events, Pine Bluffs earned fourth-place in the 4X400-meter relay with a time of 3:51.33.

Donte Jacobsen put up a strong 3200-meter time at 12:04.52, good for sixth-place.

Kyle Thurin earned seventh in the 110 meter hurdles with a time of 18.80.

Looking forward, the Hornets will travel to Mitchell, Neb this Thursday.

After the Mitchell meet, Pine Bluffs will finally compete in their own state when they head down the interstate to the Burns invitational on April 13.
