STHS’s Kelsey Smith, Shelby McIntyre lower times at Woody Wilson Invitational

Steve Yingling, Tribune sports editor

While part of the South Tahoe High track and field team participated in an intrasquad meet on Saturday, a handful of Vikings competed in the Woody Wilson Invitational on Friday in Davis.

Junior Kelsey Smith and freshman Shelby McIntyre ran season bests in distance races. Smith, last year’s Nevada state champion in the 3,200 and 1,600 meters, placed fifth in the 3,200 with a time of 11 minutes and 12 seconds and completed the 1,600 in 5:15.

McIntyre finished only four seconds behind Smith in the 1,600.

“How good is that? … 11:16 was Kate (Lambdin’s personal record) from high school,” said STHS distance coach Dan Wilvers. “Pretty impressive, and she wasn’t all that tired. She’s still learning to race, and she was stuck in traffic for much of the race.”

Senior Chris Klug long jumped 20 feet, 7 inches to finish eighth. The mark was 6 inches off his PR.

South Tahoe will host a four-team meet Wednesday at South Tahoe Middle School. Manogue, Douglas and McQueen will compete against the Vikings in the 3 p.m. meet.
