BURNS - Four Pine Bluffs Hornets added to already impressive seasons last week with wins on the track and in the field at the Burns Invitational track meet last Thursday.

Riding an outstanding year in the 100-meter dash, Seth Tangeman took home first-place honors in the event.

For his 136-foot throw, Tucker Norman earned first place in the discus toss.

Haize Fornstrom won the triple jump by nearly three feet with his 40-8.50 effort.

And Ishmael DePaullite, who is also having quite a senior campaign, won the long jump at 20-10.25.

Gering, Neb. ultimately won the meet.

A hodgepodge of other Hornets placed highly enough in their events for Pine Bluffs to earn second-place, significantly behind Gering which is a much larger school.

Tangeman led off the team's first running of the sprint medley relay.

Introduced this year as an exhibition event, the sprint medley relay gives a chance for track teams to showcase their talents.

The first two runners each run a 200-meter dash. The third runs a 400-meter dash and the fourth runner a 800-meter run.

Pine Bluffs earned second in the inaugural event with a time of 4:02.16.

Colby Lamb, Michael Shain and DePaullite were also on the team.

The 4X400 team of DePaullite, Lamb, Kyle Thurin and Bradley Shmdi took third place at 3:47.20.

Haize Fornstrom entered the 200-meter dash, placing fifth (25.70).

Michael Shain ran the 1600-meter in 5:40.85. That was good enough to earn him sixth-place.

Thurin's time of 3:47.20 in the 300-meter hurdles got him a fourth-place.

Wyatt Fornstrom and Norman finished third and fourth in the shot put throw with 45-05.75 and 44-04.50 throws respectively.

James Merryfield and Wyatt Fornstrom were fifth and sixth in the discus. Merryfield threw it 121 feet and Wyatt Fornstrom 120.

Haize Fornstrom also earned fifth in the high jump.

Greg Fornstrom and Clayton Haug were sixth and seventh in the pole vault. Both put up 8-01.00 efforts, but Haug needed additional tries.

Justus Golding's 37-11.50 leap was good enough for fourth-place in the triple jump. Marvin Reza also brought home seventh place in the event.

Thursday, the Hornets will compete on their own track. The meet was originally scheduled for Friday but was moved up a day due to forecasted snow.
