LAUREL — Winnett-Grass Range junior Zoe Delaney is heating up at the right time.

Delaney won four individual events at Thursday’s Sunshine Meet at the Laurel Sports Complex to add to her already impressive resume. Delaney swept the sprints, winning the 100-meter dash in 13.15 seconds, the 200-meter dash in 27.38 and the 400-meter dash in 1 minute, 00.22 seconds. Delaney’s fourth victory came in the 800-meter run, as she crossed in 2:26.90, just ahead of Three Forks’ Kyle Olson.

For Delaney, it was the first time she’d ran the 800 in her high school career, according to www.athletic.net. Her time currently stands as Class C’s best. Delaney won the 100 and 400 at last year’s State C meet and placed second in the 200.

Delaney’s individual victories weren’t enough to push the Rams to the girls team title, as Three Forks took those honors. Three Forks was led by Kendall and Keaton Lynn. Kendall won the 300-meter hurdles (50.05 seconds), placed second in triple jump (33 feet, 8 inches) to Ennis standout Jourdain Klein and placed fourth in the high jump (4-06). Keaton won the long jump with a leap of 15-09.25.

Jefferson took home the boys title on Thursday afternoon, running away from second-place Big Timber, 79.5-57.

Jefferson did the majority of its damage in the field events. Coen Guisti and Dalton Rykal finished 1-2 in the shot put to give the Panthers 18 points. Guisti, Rykal and Drake Schake finished 2-4 in the discus and Rykal finished sixth in the javelin.

As expected, Avery Stiles won the high jump for Jefferson, but Stiles couldn’t match his 6-08 jump from earlier this season. Stiles won with a jump of 6-02, while Joliet’s Ry Olson placed second.

Olson won a pair of events for Joliet, winning the triple jump (41-05.5) and long jump (21-03). Big Timber’s Casey Gunlikson won the 100 (11.20), 200 (22.94), ran on the Sheepherders’ winning 400-meter relay team (46.29) and placed second in the 300-meter hurdles (41.25) to Winnett-Grass Range’s Jacob Jessen. Jessen ran 41.12, qualifying for the State C meet. Jessen’s time is also the fastest in Class C this season.
