The Hunt

Friday, April 30 2021 - The Hunt Invite

Every year The Hunt is a great opportunity to compete. This year we are still shaking off the rust of early season meets with a few football players having their first meet of the year. The team competed really well and had some great overall performances.

Relays run 4 for 4 with season bests! The two 4x8 teams ran 6 PR legs out of 8 total runners and finished 3rd overall with the A squad. The 4x100 ran a season best to finish 2nd overall. Both 4x200 relays ran great. And then the 4x400 ran a season best with 2 guys running lifetime bests on a 4x400 relay split.

Freshman Bryan Underwood continues his great early season success. Bryan went over a hurdle for the first time 3 weeks ago, his three 300H hurdle races have been 50.5, 48.1, and now 45.6. He finished 4th overall in his first competitive varsity race.

Chris Frazier had a day. In his first meet since joining us from football he went 3 for 3 on PRs and also ran a steller leg on the 4x200. He jumped over 6 meters for the first time in long jump and then ran our fastest 100 (winning the 1st heat) and then our fastest 200.

Aiden Haughian brought a great race in very windy conditions (there were only about 5 minutes of terrible win, thanks micro storm) and they were during the 800. Aiden won the race for 2nd as all-stater Niko Shultz ran away from the field. Aiden came back to run a PR leg to lead off the 4x400.

Richard and Patrick Todd contributed a ton of points for the team. They both ran PRs in the 400, Patrick was a leg on the 2nd place 4x100 and also they went 3rd and 4th in the high jump, with Patrick clearing 1.70 in only his second high jump competition.
