Absent teammates didnвЂ™t stop several Emery High track athletes from enjoying personal success Saturday at the Carbon Invitational meet.
Sophmore sensation Blayr Jeffs took first in her open 100m with a time of 13.50. She then won the finals with a time of 13.15. Jeffs also made the finals in the 400m where she finished in second place with a time of 1:02.12.
Between running events, Jeffs used her final attempt on the long jump to place second at 16вЂ™.06.25вЂќ.
Hannah Dyer, who is proving to be a fabulous freshman shot putter, threw for 28вЂ™.06.50вЂќ, which earned a top ten finish.
Kassidee Oakson finished third overall in the open 800m with a time of 3.02.88.
The boyвЂ™s 4×400 team of Brenden Jorgensen, Spencer Fehlberg, David Dyer, and Eli Oliverson, finished third overall with a time of 4.04.67.
Senior Spencer Fehlberg ran an impressive 2.11.02 in the boy’s open 800m finals, finishing third.
Oliverson jumped a height of 5вЂ™.08вЂќ to come in fourth overall in the high jump.
Brendon Jorgensen stretched his long jump to 20вЂ™ to place fifth in the finals for the Spartans.
Coach Jeffs commented that the boy’s team is young in comparison to some of the schools they are competing against. Furthermore, the team has recently had a few team members suffer injuries, which has set back the team’s overall success.
The Spartan’s next meet is at home when they will host the Darrell Gardner Invitational.
