Incline tracksters sweep boys, girls small school titles at Fallon
Incline High School battled the weather as well as other competitors Saturday, March 23, at the Churchill County Elks Invitational track meet in Fallon, Nevada.
The Highlanders boys and girls each claimed first place in the small school category. The girls won the meet for the second straight year.
Overall, the girls finished in ninth and the boys eighth out of 15 total teams at the meet.
Incline sophomore Brayden Snearly enjoyed a productive meet and he probably slept well Saturday night.
Snearly claimed top five finishes in four events, including the 100-meter dash, long jump, high jump and was part of the four-member 4×400 relay.
Highlander sophomore Dylan Cleary set a personal best in the 200, 23.77 seconds, and earned third place. He also was edged out by Snearly by just .03 in the 100 preliminaries and didn’t reach the finals.
Long distance running sophomore Niklas Pietzke finished fifth in the 3200 and sixth in the 1600.
For the Lady Highlanders, sophomore Millie Jenkins grabbed second lace in the high jump with a leap of 4 feet, 10 inches.
Jenkins also earned second in the 100-meter hurdles and was a finalist in the long jump but was forced to scratch due to an injury.
Sami Giangreco earned fifth in high jump (4-06) and was eighth in discus.
Freshman Mattison Lampe made finals in 100 and finished sixth out of 38 runners. She also was part of the sixth place 4×400 relay team.
The Highlanders will compete Friday and Saturday, March 29-30, at the Reed Sparks Rotary Invitational at Reed High School in Sparks, Nevada.
