GLASGOW — The Scobey boys track and field team ran away with the Eastern C divisional track and field title in Glasgow on Thursday, while the girls team held off Westby-Grenora in a tight race. Scobey’s boys piled up 147 points, cruising past second-place Richey-Lambert. Scobey’s girls scored 91 points, while Westby-Grenora placed second with 79.

Scobey used their combination of top-end talent and team depth to grab the divisional title. Riley Linder had himself a day. Linder won the 100-meter dash in 11.75 seconds, won the 110-meter hurdles in 15.85, placed first in the 300-meter hurdles in 41.67, and ran on the Spartans’ winning 400-meter relay team, which crossed the line in 45.79. Linder also won the javelin with a toss of 169 feet, 3 inches, which currently ranks No. 2 in Class C.

Linder was just one of multiple winners for the Spartans. Martin Farver won the 400-meter dash in 52.64, placed fourth in the 110 hurdles, ran on the winning 400-meter relay team, while also running on the 1,600-meter relay team that placed second.

Scobey racked up points in the field events, too. Ethan Anderson and CJ Nelson finished third and fourth in the triple jump, while Anderson finished second in the long jump and Nelson finished sixth in the pole vault. Tucker Gaustad, CJ Nelson and Jeremy Handy finished third, fourth and fifth in the javelin, giving Scobey four of the top five finishers in the event. Handy also placed second in the shot put. Brandon Machart added fourth-place finishes in the 400-meter dash and 800-meter run.

Scobey’s girls held off a tremendous day from Westby-Grenora sensation Kinley Peterson. Peterson won her four individual events (100, 200, 400, 800) and ran on the Thunder’s second-place 400-meter relay team.

Tia Hallock led the Spartans to the team title by winning both the 100- and 300-meter hurdles, and placing second behind Peterson in the 100. Hallock also won the javelin. Hallock ranks in the top-10 of Class C in all four events.

Freshman Gracee Lekvold, who is currently ranked third in the 1,600 in Class C, won the 1,600 in 5:39.10. Lekvold also placed fourth in the 800 and ran on Scobey’s second-place 1,600-meter relay team.

Hinsdale freshman Kaitlyn McColly won three events — the pole vault, triple jump and long jump. Nashua senior Taylor Laumeyer won both the shot put and discus. Laumeyer ranks No. 2 in the shot put and No. 4 in the discus in Class C.
